Justin Moody: TourKidd Launch Show Series

During the launch show for the prototype of its web application, TourKidd had a chat in a basement of the Icehouse with Justin Moody, a singer-songwriter from Phoenix, AZ.  This is what went down.


Introduce yourself with your name, your sound, and the kind of animal that you would be if you were an animal.

Justin Moody: folk/indie/singer-songwriter, raccoon


Where did you go on your last tour, and what was a highlight city of the tour?

Justin: I went to Denver, then Las Cruces in New Mexico and California.  I would say the best shows on tour were in Las Cruces, I love that place.  They had the best crowds and the best people.


Has your sound changed or developed over time, or has it stayed pretty consistent?

Justin: My music has become more full.  I’ve always played singer-songwriter, folk-like music but it’s gotten a bit more full and dark.


What is a common challenge that you face while on tour that you’d like to see the future TourKidd app help you out with?

Justin: Coordinating with people who do certain shows and just meeting different people.


Favorite type of show to play?

Justin: House shows.


How would you compare your energy and stage presence between when you perform at house shows and when you play at bigger venues?

Justin: At house shows, it may be a little more awkward to talk with some people in the audience.  [House shows] are more quiet, a lot more emotional…a lot more intimate, so it’s perfect for what I do.


What is a general topic that you haven’t written about yet, but that you’d like to write about in the near future?

Justin: Anything other than being heartbroken. [he chuckles]


If you could capture your mood in this moment with any song, which song would it be?

Justin: “Rain Dogs” by Tom Waits


A quote to capture this band, this show, this moment?

Justin: I’m really excited for TourKidd, I think it’s going to be a really cool thing and I think it’s going to make [the DIY communities] a lot more accessible.  I think [TourKidd] is going about it the right way, there’s a lot of good hype about it.  I’m really excited to see what happens.


TourKidd talked with more bands at its launch show that night.  Click here to check out the other interviews.
