Mossflower hail from West Auckland and organized their own concerts as no promoter would give them an audition. Initially supported by their High School friends, their reputation as a hard rocking band with a solid, tight sound and great song writing talents spread and they found themselves increasing asked when their CD was coming out. Since no record company talent scout had materialized with an offer, they hired a studio (The Oaks)and Auckland\'s then top Producer, Peter Van Gent, and set to work. \'Green\' is the result of that effort and it proves just how talented they are. One song needed something \'special\' and on hearing the Hari Krishna\'s playing their bells in Queen Street (Auckland\'s main street), they knew what it needed. They asked the young men on the street if they would play their bells on a track for the album they were recording. The young men agreed and when they arrived at the studio, they had their Spiritual Leader, His Divine Grace A.C Bhakivedante Srila Prabhupada, the Founder of the Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, with them and he contributed the spoken words heard here on \'The Calling\' and the result is very different and exciting. Mossflower\'s only disappointment was being mistaken for being a rock band from Ireland. With the name Mossflower and the Album\'s title \'Green\', one could forgive non-Aucklanders for coming to this conclusion, especially because Paul sounds \'very English\' to New Zealanders\' ears. The most popular tracks are the title track \'Green\' and \'The Calling\' along with \'Spider Dies\'. A very interesting, world class Album worthy a serious look at if you are into hard rock. The Line up is: Paul Barrett (lead guitar, vocals and dominate songwriter), Jarred Kahi (rhythm guitar, vocals and songwriting - track 10), Cole Goodley (drums and percussion) and Luke Marygold (bass guitar and cello). Another, non-Band Member, Joel Peters, contributed his songwriting skills to tracks 3, 9 and 11. This Album is available both as an mp3 file and a glass mastered Compact Disc made in Australia by PMI.
