The Ali Maas and Micky Moody collaboration began in 2014 as a songwriting venture which has since evolved into the album Black & Chrome. It is more than a coincidence that one of Ali’s early influences as a singer was David Coverdale at the time when Micky was guitarist with the original Whitesnake.
The results of this union, however, are not based on any form of classic rock, but more from a shared admiration of blues, soul, Americana, swampy rhythms and captivating melodies.
Aside from his well-documented time with Whitesnake, Micky was also a member of Juicy Lucy, Snafu, Frankie Miller’s Full House, Roger Chapman and the Shortlist, The Moody Marsden Band, The Company of Snakes, M3 and Snakecharmer. He has also been a very active session musician, author and creator of library music.
Ali has always specialized in writing original material with thought provoking lyrics and inventive melodies. After an initial period of studio work, and live session singing, she progressed onto the indie rock scene as lead singer and writer for the critically acclaimed band McQueen. During this time, Ali also developed her skills as an artist and currently runs her own one-woman enterprise, making mixed media artwork and leather work for the interior design industry. Her first love is, and always has been, music.
Black & Chrome is now on worldwide released and available for purchase from the Armadillo Music store.
