About Moriarty

Bringing together multinational musicians whose primary work was influenced by traditional Irish folk, country, and blues, France-based Moriarty also took a page from punk rock in that all the bandmembers use the surname "Moriarty" as a performance name (à la the Ramones, for example). Members Charles Carmignac (guitars, percussion), Arthur Gillette (guitar, piano), Thomas Puéchavy (harmonica), Rosemary Stanley (vocals, various instruments), and Stephan Zimmerli (bass, guitar) hail from a number of countries, including France, the United States, Switzerland, and Vietnam. Their debut, Gee Whiz But This Is a Lonesome Town, was released in 2007 by Naïve Records. ~ Chris True
