Moon and Bike is an instrumental guitar duo based in Portland, OR. Their use of acoustic and electric guitars to create lush, melodic soundscapes is the core of their sound. Some of their influences include Daniel Lanois, Michael Hedges, Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), and Peter Buck (REM).
Boone and Michael met in Eugene, OR and formed their first band, Turning Eleven, shortly after in Portland. During their many years in Portland, they've collaborated together and with other musicians in a variety of musical styles. They've 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. In the summer of 2021 they will be releasing two songs off of their debut album, remixed with addition of drums by Dylan Magierek of Badman Recording Co. in Portland. They are hard at work on their next full-length album, which they plan to release in 2022.
