Mosaic began as Andrew Huang (guitar, vocals) and Kamron Munch (Bass, vocals). The two had been performing as an acoustic/folk duo around the Athens and Atlanta area. Together they released a solo project album called "Hiding Places" in the spring of 2014 under Andrew's self-titled project, Andrew Huang Music. As their arrangements grew they began to require added instrumentation and vocals. Thus, in the winter of 2014, Mosaic was born.
The band played their first official show as Mosaic right in their hometown, opening for Nashville folk band Judah & The Lion as the group ended their tour in Athens. They have made appearances with acts such as Steve Moakler, Cody Fry, Hope Country, Sam Burchfield, Chief Scout, Hosts and Josh Savage while also headlining shows in the Athens area, selling out The World Famous and filling other popular local spots like Hendershots, The Foundry, and the 40Watt Club. And as much as they've performed on stages, they have also shared their music at Sofar Sounds and Pop-Up Charleston, mobile venues that bring audiences face to face to artists in a more intimate and homey setting.
True to the name, the band Mosaic is a collection of unique pieces, crafted carefully to create a cohesion of sound and meaning. Their art draws inspiration from indie-rock, folk, and the lyrical richness of singer-songwriter. The colorfulness and light reflected through their music aims to bridge the gap between humanness and holiness, past failures and future hopes, brokenness and wholeness. Their interwoven art and faith produces an entity that is full of hope, yet it encompasses the grittiness of human nature. Mosaic values creating music that is true to themselves, hoping that their songs to be thought-provoking and representative of a deep-seated vision, love, and purpose.
In the spring of 2015, Mosaic recorded their first EP "Read Not the Times." After spending the majority of the winter rehearsing, arranging and writing, they were finally ready to put some of their songs in the red. They joined forces with local engineer Paul Reeves at Domus Sound. With the help of skilled instrumentalists Vince Guagliardo (drums) and Richard Sherrington (keys, organ), they were able to finish this collection of five songs before June.
“Read Not the Times” wrestles with themes such as: shame, hope, perseverance, love, nostalgia, all of which work together to knit the fabric of the human story. Frontman Andrew Huang states, “each of our stories are a beautiful mix of joy, grief and everything in between. It is my hope that through this music we may find the courage to find purpose in even the darkest of seasons. There is so much hope in the simple statement that we are never alone.”
