About Bigfoot Mojo

Bigfoot Mojo

Upright bassist Belinda Underwood and national mandolin champion Josiah Payne met on the bluegrass scene in Portland, Oregon, as hired hands in other award-winning bands. Musicians in multiple genres since childhood, they both grew up in family bands before moving to Oregon, and were feeling orphaned without their families until they found each other in 2012. After playing together for 3 years as "Josiah and Belinda", they adoped the mascot of the Northwest when they became Bigfoot Mojo.

Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, they have many creative offerings, including this new incarnation. Josiah and Belinda continue to mesmerize audiences with groove-based melodies and impeccable vocal harmonies (the kind that sound genetically-blended), setting a new standard for original music which defies genre boundaries.

Bigfoot Mojo plays with other amazing guest musicians to create a trio, quartet or bigger. Lately they have been featuring world-traveling guitarist Pete Kartsounes, when he is home from tour! Also featured is the young national twin fiddle champion Wilhelmina.

Josiah and Belinda also play together in the high-energy bluegrass band The Wild Wood and in their Middle Eastern funk band, Al Farasha.
