Moon and Bike is an instrumental guitar duo hailing from the Pacific Northwest, USA. Their use of acoustic and electric guitars to create lush, melodic, and immersive soundscapes is the core of their sound. Some of their influences include Daniel Lanois, Michael Hedges, Preston Reed, Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), Don Peris (Innocence Mission), and Peter Buck (REM).
Boone and Michael met in Eugene, OR and formed their first band, Turning Eleven, shortly after in Portland, OR. During their years in Portland, they wrote and played together and with other musicians in a variety of styles. They also scored for film and worked in sound design.
In October 2020, they released their first album of instrumental guitar works, One, which includes songs written over the previous twenty years. The self-titled track, Moon and Bike, was originally composed in 1995 and inspired the Moon and Bike project. They are currently recording their next full-length album, which will release in the summer of 2021.
