Moneta and their only constant dedication
For Seattle's Moneta, the only constant has been the dedication and passion for the music. Since formation in late 2007, the band has weathered member changes, illness, personal struggles, record label shakeups, and finding a way to stay relevant into the growing void of the once plentiful (now declining) music industry.
With a powerful new modern rock record in hand, the future of Moneta seems uncertain, but promising. With sweeping changes throughout the music industry in the internet generation, it seems like it's only going to get worse before it gets better. But there are some bright, hopeful spots. Fellow locals like Macklemore have blazed the trail for a new age of successful independent artists. One thing you count on, though, is that Moneta will persist.
"The only constant" was released on March 18th, listen to the amazing album track "The jackal and the lion" here:
