Moe's Alley presents Lauren Wahl & Simply Put for a special EP release celebration.  Special guests Justin Hambly & The Heavy Hand support.

Stories told through song, Simply Put.

Musician Lauren Wahl and her band 'Simply Put' has begun to make a name for themselves in the local Santa Cruz area.  Lauren, former member of The Bluetail Flies and singer of Flypaper Blues, has started her own band to feature her ultimate passion: songwriting. Her music weaves together thoughtfully written lyrics and soothing melodies that invite the listener along a multi-faceted journey of introspection and affirmation. Her songs are each unique in character, yet cohesive.  One could describe it as a fusion of singer-songwriter, blues-rock, pop, modern-folk and soulful ballads, each song with it's own story to tell.

Simply Put features Mariah Roberts rockin' a soulful fiddle, Justin Hambly (of Justin Hambly and the Heavy Hand) with captivating electric guitar riffs and solos, and Dylan Short- whose stunning ability on keys often leaves the entire band in awe. Local musician Mike Kelly (of Sasha's Money) drives the set with electric bass, and professional drummer Zen Perry keeps the band in full swing. Each member individually comes to Simply Put as an experienced musician with a long list of credentials on their own.  Together this young band effortlessly blends pulsing rhythm, sweet harmonies and warm counter melodies to create a powerhouse vehicle driving a pleasing musical narrative. Together with Must Have Media and produced by local talent Patrick Brede they are excited to release their first EP this March 2018.


Justin Hambly & The Heavy Hand, based in Santa Cruz, CA, draw on the influences of rock, Americana, and alt-country to generate a sound that is at once powerful, intimate, and heartfelt. The Heavy Handís drummer Nathan Jones and bassist Eric Maurman maintain a steady groove, while Christian Heywood really ties it all together on guitar and keyboard. Guitarist and lead vocalist Justin Hambly also fuels the fire as principle songwriter.
