Wyatt Moss-Wellington is a progressive folk musician, an idiosyncratic vocalist and guitarist, a composer of humanistic narratives in songform and a swell bloke. He's currently based in Sydney, Australia, but his cross-continental travels have brought folk influences from all over the world into his songwriting. The borders of nationality are broken down in his work, and the characters in his songs reflect this changing world. By turns confessional, political, intimate, humorous, surprising and experimental, he is defined by versatility and diversity of subject matter and mood. His guitar work is explorative, virtuosic and damn good fun.
Wyatt's live shows are a singular experience; he aims to do at least one Amazing Thing that he wasn't expected to do, per night. At least. Roll up and enjoy the show.
His debut album "The Supermarket and the Turncoat" released in 2009.
"Most guitar-strumming singer-songwriters are dull, and the rest tend to sound relentlessly like themselves, as though personal style outweighs universal substance. Wyatt Moss-Wellington turns that on its head, challenging preconceptions of song structure, guitar and vocal techniques, subject matter and stylistic homogeneity. Yes, there may be an element of the Sydneysider still searching for the real him, but much more prevalent is the rampant surprise as the listener is bounced between satire and aching tendernes, power chords and delicate finger-picking - sometimes all within one line! Moss-Wellington makes most of his peers sound like they have never fully considered the breadth of options open to them. This is an auspicious debut." John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald
