Moriarty - Long Live The Devil

English > Adaptations > Music > Rock & Roll > Moriarty

Moriarty is a musical collective made up of five artists of French, American, Swiss and Vietnamese origin, formed in 1995. The members were mainly born in France to American parents. The group was named Moriarty in reference to Dean Moriarty, the hero of On the Road by Jack Kerouac.

Moriarty went from performing traditional blues to rock'n'roll. In 2007, they released their first album, Gee Whiz But This Is a Lonesome Town. The group began a long French tour which started in April 2008, followed by concerts in Switzerland, Canada, Spain, Germany and England. In 2008, Moriarty played at quite some festivals, among which the Montreux Jazz Festival. They also performed at the Olympia theatre in Paris, to a sold-out audience.

In 2011, the band released the album The Missing Room, followed in 2012 by their third album Fugitives.

On April 22, 2014, Moriarty played at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium, where they presented the song Long Live The Devil, which was introduced by singer Rosemary Standley as being inspired by Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita.
