Mobley: The One-Man Band
Austin-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mobley describes his style as "post-genre," an evocative mix of pop, soul, rock with inventive touches that defy classification. What marks him as one of the most interesting emerging artists today is his beguiling blend of searing social criticism with captivating melodies, all brilliantly on display in his recent album, Young and Dying in the Occident Supreme. In this revealing conversation, Mobley talks about re-inventing himself as a one-man band who creates a richly layered ensemble experience while performing solo, his work in film and video and his unique and haunting collaborative video project inspired by the parlour game "Exquisite Corpse."
