Moe Train's style is all over the board. I listen to so many different things that I try to incorporate a little of everything into what I write. I'm a pretty high energy guy, so most of my music stems from that fact. Other times, it's time to take it down a few "notches" and take it easy with more of a mellow mood.
I've played live many times, but there are so many special moments that it's hard to choose one. I've been onstage at Warped with thousands of people in the crowd, sang at sold out Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Goldfinger, Dropkick Murphys, Suicide Machines, Less Than Jake, Dance Hall Crashers, Reel Big Fish, and other shows which have slipped my mind. There's nothing like being in front of a "sea" of people and performing. It's a different type of rush that you can't get from anything else.

Bob Marley without a doubt is my most powerful influence as songwriter/performer. The passion which is emitted from his music is unsurpassed in my eyes. Also, from being in a punk/ska/reggae band... That has a huge influence in all that I write. However, in trying not to lock myself down to a genre, I'm always listening to new music to expand my horizons.
Here are some of my musical influences:
