Hailing from Victoria, B.C., this young group of talented musicians has legions of fans on an international scale. Triplets Clint, Dave and Bob along with their older brother, Scott, form the Moffats.
Music became a part of the foursomes’ lives at an early age. Starting as a country act in 1994, the Moffats became the youngest group to sign a major label deal in Nashville. Realizing that their musical influences were more along the lines of Bryan Adams and the BeeGees, the band began a gradual switch from all country performances to completely pop. Capitol Records supported them along the way.
In 1998, the Moffats’ debut album, Chapter 1- A New Beginningwas released featuring the Top 40 hit “I’ll Be There For You” which was written and co-produced by the Bermen Brothers (Hanson). The Moffats have also worked with Glen Ballard (Alanis Morisette, Aerosmith) who produced the single “Until You Loved Me.” This single eventually became part of the Drew Barrymore film ‘Never Been Kissed.”
The band is quite different from other bands of the same age. According to Ballard, “I was impressed with their focus, their discipline, the way they played together as a unit. They’re long term…” Unlike other boy-bands, The Moffats play all their own instruments and write their own songs.
Their talent shines in their gold, platinum and multi-platinum records in countries around the world. Appearing at Parliament Hill, the White House and on numerous television shows have been a few of their high-publicity acts while they gain amazing exposure worldwide.
The band continues to set high aspirations for themselves. According to Bob, “We want to be known as good musicians and good songwriters. We want to continue to evolve with every album.”
