TODD MOSBY NEW HORIZONS ENSEMBLE

This ensemble has toured across the United States, from New York to San Francisco.

A world music/jazz/folk fusion super group, featured noted musicians include:

  • Premik Russell Tubbs (Santana, Sting, Jeff Beck),
  • Jeff Haynes (Pat Metheny, Joni Mitchell, Cassandra Wilson, Herbie Hancock)
  • Michael Manring Bass virtuoso (Michael Hedges, Will Ackerman, Mark Isham)
  • Lola Toben (singer, pianist, songwriter rising star)
  • Bryan Toben(singer, guitarist, songwriter)
  • Todd Mosby (composer, musical director, guitar)

Creating a live version of his recent concept album "On Eagle Mountain", Mosby weaves personal story and visual media to engage audiences emotionally, visually and sonically.

A line up of grammy nominated/winning performers is featured within this award winning ensemble delivering performances which has transformed lives. New Horizons Ensemble is a 6 member touring version of the chart topping "On Eagle Mountain" release.

Here is a three tune synopsis:

  • "Moon Song" describes the light of a full moon as it casts a soft luminance over a snowcapped Eagle Mountain and surrounding fields signaling the first days of Winter.

  • "Western Sky” describes the romantic light of a western sky as it sets on the beauty of the land.

  • “Falling Light” is an audience participation piece describing how the sunlight breaks thru clouds after a fresh Spring Rain.

Our goal is to give a presentation which invites audiences into a natural mountainous world of fantasy, emotion, beauty and inspiration.

An award winning ensemble delivers an acoustic mix of world/jazz/folk/new age which transforms lives.

These compositions are brought to life with an exciting virtuoso flair. When the music flows, your inner mountain glows. New Horizons Ensemble is as much fun to watch as it is to listen.

Partial Concert Review: The Fenix August 2016, San Rafael, Ca.

"The musicianship of this all-star group was off the charts. The ensemble was remarkably tight...The songs ranged from more laid-back Windham Hill-inspired melodies to up-tempo grooves with stellar solos from Todd and Premik.

While it was primarily instrumental music with occasional ambient background vocals, a surprise of the evening was when the group accompanied Lola who sang a stunning rendition of Neil Young’s “Down By The River.”

All in all it was a memorable and rare event with many wow-moments. Anyone who is interested to get an idea of what sounded like should check out Todd Mosby’s beautiful “On Eagle Mountain” album."
