Bob Moses (Band) is a Canadian electronic live act, originally from Vancouver, British Columbia. The band consists of Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance. Howie and Vallance were friends in high school who enjoyed similar music and dabbled into the sounds of California punk, Northwest grunge, and Minimalist electronic. They eventually moved to New York City separately. Vallance worked for a record engineering company for Dutch artist, Matthew Dekay, who was on Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream imprint.

He was originally in the rock band Coalition, known for their hit song “Snowboarding”. After a year, Vallance and Howie reunited in a Lowe’s car park. Soon after they shared a flat together before working on music for the first time as a duo.
