"“Imagine if Kings of Leon learned to play guitar from Led Zeppelin while growing up with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers reading stories to them,” (MTSU Sidelines) and there you would have one of Nashville’s newest and most promising rock groups, Modoc.

In 2007, Modoc left the cornfields of Indiana and set out to find a new place to call home. Nashville seemed like a natural fit for the band and so far they have been extremely well received by the local music industry and fans alike. Just one year after Modoc’s arrival in Music City, The Nashville Scene spoke to a handful of bloggers, writers, promoters and radio personalities about their favorite discovery of the year. Todd Sherwood, owner of The 5 Spot, said “[Modoc] put on a great rock ‘n’ roll show,” and that Modoc WAS his favorite discovery of the year. Movement Nashville’s Dean Shortland said that the first time he saw Modoc play, “[They] made me stop what I was doing and shut my mouth.” That speaks volumes for a city that is saturated with live music.

Modoc has released two albums, the latest of which was released early 2009. Led On, a track from Modoc’s Passive Aggressive album, was featured on the promotional video for Next Big Nashville where Modoc also showcased.

Modoc has easily mixed “originality and accessibility,” something not easily attained, with “a mix of solid songwriting and enough edge to keep it fresh upon repeat listening.” (Star Press). “They seem to be less concerned with breaking new and innovative ground, and more dedicated to reviving a genre that has been broken down for the past 30 years” (MTSU Sidelines). No matter your age, Modoc is “sure to satisfy any craving for Rock.” (BMI)."
