Black Snake Moan is an American industrial rock band formed in 1997 in the San Francisco Bay Area by singer, songwriter Paige Lawrence. Named after the blues song, “That Black Snake Moan No. 1” by country blues artist Blind Lemon Jefferson the band began its career playing blues-influenced industrial music. Lawrence's lyrics, influenced heavily by authors Carlos Castaneda, Anne Rice, and Frank Herbert, focus on introspection, indigenous spirituality, unexplainable phenomenon and personal development. Lawrence, the only permanent member of the group has recruited completely new musicians to play live for each of the two Black Snake Moan albums, Rattle In The Sand and Tension. The majority of the band's live performances have been held in the San Francisco bay area, where they have a strong local following.
