Moon and Bike is an instrumental guitar project based in Portland, Oregon. Their use of acoustic and electric guitars to create lush, melodic soundscapes is at the core of their sound, which can be hard to pin down to a single genre. Some of their influences include Daniel Lanois, Cocteau Twins, and Explosions in the Sky.
In October 2020, they released their first album of instrumental guitar works, One. The self-titled track, Moon and Bike, was the first song they composed together when they met years ago in Eugene, OR, and was the impetus for the Moon and Bike project.
They are currently hard at work on their second full-length album, which promises to deliver a much bigger sound. They have teamed up with drummer John Gannon, who has joined them for live shows, and has recorded tracks for most of the songs on their new album. Dylan Magierek of Badman Recording Co. has been working with them in the studio to record and co-produce their next release, due out in 2022.
Boone and Michael also have years of experience scoring original music for film as well as sound design work.
