Vocalist Fairlight Moriah and guitarist Joe King are Plastic Mojo, a relatively new Springs blues combo whose style merges many guitar and vocal influences to create a flavorful blues fusion. Moriah has been singing since she was in diapers, and her expressive performance seems to belie her age; she clearly has the blues in her bones. King has been playing slide guitar for decades and is a master of his craft, combining styles that include Mississippi Delta, East Texas gospel slide, psychedelic rock, New Orleans jazz, Tejano and more, to create an energetic and expert complement to Moriah's voice. Experience Plastic Mojo's coolness at one of several shows in the next few weeks, or visit joekingblues.com for a preview.
