For the past two years, the local soul pop artist Mobley, has been touring non-stop, scorching stages around the country. With an uncanny knack for catchy, sing-along hooks, he creates irresistible earworms, well-crafted pop songs that instantly stick. His Spotify spins frequently top 100,000 and his immersive thrill ride of a live show has earned him looks from prominent national music media outlets. Now, with appearances at Austin City Limits Fest and Utopia Fest looming large this fall, the hometown buzz is beginning to catch up.
