September Mourning

September MourningSeptember Mourning is a dark culture, fantasy that resides in the pages of a comic book published by Top Cow/Image Comics and comes to life as a musical art project on stage. Created by Emily Lazar and comic book legend, Marc Silvestri, the comics “A Murder of Reapers” and “The Hand of Fate” (collectively “Volume I”) tell the tale of September, a human/reaper hybrid with no memory of her past. Empowered with supernatural gifts, she is driven to protect humanity from Fate and his Reapers.

The musical accompaniment to this story is a full length album, “Volume II”, released on Sumerian Records. The songs written by co-creator, Emily Lazar, give more depth and insight into September, revealing her innermost thoughts and feelings. On stage, Lazar also personifies the character of September, accompanied by her band of Reapers. Together they have performed at such notable events as Download (UK), Rock on the Range (Columbus, OH), Aftershock (Sacramento, CA), Comicpalooza (Houston, TX), AC Boardwalk Con (Atlantic City, NJ), Anime Midwest (Chicago, IL), Mechacon (New Orleans, LA) and many more.

In Mid-October September Mourning released their new song “Empire”, accompanied by the third chapter of their story, “Trinity”. More music will be released in 2019 and a full graphic novel containing all four chapters of the story will hit comic stores on January 16, 2019. (Source)

The Black Moods

the black moodsA second generation musician, vocalist Joshua Kennedy moved to the Southwest from Wheaton, Missouri as a teen, pursuing an opportunity to tech for one of his favorite bands and also attend the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences. A few years, a few bands, and a bevy of experiences later, he met drummer Chico Diaz, a fixture in the Phoenix music scene. 

With the addition of bassist Jordan Hoffman, they rounded out the band and began writing tracks and rehearsing non-stop. One night while watching a music documentary about The Doors, they heard Ray Manzarek say, “watch out, Jim [Morrison] is in one of his black moods”, and there it was, their new identity to the rock world, The Black Moods.

Since their formation, The Black Moods have honed their chops performing hundreds of dates at festivals, club shows and touring venues. Whether headlining for more than 3,000 fans or performing an acoustic set on a patio overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the band puts their heart and soul into every performance, serving up their homegrown blend of rock and roll.
