Artist or Band Name
Born on the first day of June in the beautifully diverse port-city of Duluth, Minnesota; Zachary Moder (aka MN Moder), is not your typical 26 year old. In addition to sharing stages with members of Bone Thugs N Harmony as well as Tech N9ne, Twista, Project Pat, DJ Paul, Mystikal, Devin the Dude, Obie Trice, Lil Wyte, JellyRoll, Kutt Calhoun, Chris Webby, CES Cru, ¡MAYDAY!, and Rittz (amongst others); he has also acquired educational experience from multiple collegiate business programs and independently recorded a collective of over 300+ songs with guest verse appearances across numerous mixtapes and albums. After years of hard work and dedication, he released his first full-length LP titled “Modervation” in June of 2019 along with an EP titled “Continuum” in September of 2019 through his company MidCoast Music.
Moder served 4 years in the United States Army as a 19D Cavalry Scout (Combat Reconnaissance) in addition to working many odd jobs and at one point even drug dealing prior to fully investing into his personal musical and entrepreneurial dreams as well as his own potential. Through trials, tribulations, and challenging life obstacles these experiences have helped mold Mr. Moder into the person he is today. These experiences help strengthen his willpower, re-fuel his determination, and urge him to always rise above the situation to this very day. Each hardship survived has contributed to the awakening of a passion within his heart. His passion burns hot; focused on helping everyone by means of motivational messages within and outside of his music, he delivers it with what he refers to as “Optimistic realism” or “Modervation”.
