About Nine Volt Moon


Most band bios sound like they were written by used car salesman, full of platitudes, exaggerations, half-truths and questionable comparisons. We decided not to go that route. So here's what you need to know about Nine Volt Moon. We are a 3 piece band based out of Southern California. We play original music that is self-described as Americana Rock. I know, we're bordering on salesman territory with that vague term…."Americana Rock". What does that even mean? It's simply rock and roll with heavy influences of traditional American music (folk, blues and country).


The group includes Brian Davis on Drums, Ken Paul on Bass and Doug Schmude on Vocals and Guitar. Originally from Pennsylvania, Brian cut his teeth in Metal bands in the front range of Colorado in the 90s. Ken, a Minnesota native, played bass in numerous Southern California Ska/Funk and Punk bands around the same time period. Doug, the band's primary songwriter, was born in Louisiana and grew up in Oklahoma and Texas. He has been writing, recording and performing his own music for over 20 years, predominantly as a solo singer songwriter. Initially in Colorado in the 90s, Tennessee in early 2000s and now Southern California for the past 15 years.


To date, Nine Volt Moon hasn't recorded any music yet, but you can purchase their music and get a feel for their style by listening to Doug Schmude's solo work. Many of the Nine Volt Moon tracks come out of that catalog. Come check us out somewhere, we'd love to see you at a show. Maybe you can help us write a better bio.
