About Mojave

Officially formed in early 2007, Mojave started as a side project from two members of Vancouver hard rock bands, Damsel Fly and Latitude. Having already spent a few years writing songs together, LJ and Paul had an entire album ready to record by the time their bands called it quits. Mojave's sound draws from the bands previous rock background, but is softened with classical elements like viola and violin. Bringing the sound together is an eclectic mix of percussion. At the forefront are female vocals with delicately intertwined acoustic guitars - weaving melodies, telling stories. 


Mojave is focused on creating a green music scene. ‘Stories' avoids packaging by being offered exclusively through digital retailers. All travel made by the band is carbon offset through Tree Canada, and they are members of 1% for the Planet, donating a portion of their profits to environmental charities. They also help raise money for a cause near to their hearts, the Stillpointe Llama Sanctuary where they have adopted Starman and Miss Honey. 


2008 was a busy year for the band having toured Canada and the US, hitting venues like the world famous Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood and the House of Blues in Las Vegas. They’ve also licensed their music to several independent film projects and non profit organizations including the Vodafone Australia Foundation. Mojave just released their sophomore album entitled ‘Crow's Funeral’ produced by Dan Achen (City & Colour, Feist).
