Neon Moon formed from a love of songwriting. Josh and Noelle dedicated one year of their life to writing a new song every week and posting it on YouTube, which they titled Our52Songs. From this immersion into the crafting process, they discovered their deep love for the sounds of yesteryear’s country music.
This long process paid off with the birth of Neon Moon’s 6 song album, 6:53- named after 5 songs from the 52 song project plus 1 more they wrote and recorded later on to make 6 songs out of 53. Upon listening to the album you’ll hear a combination of sounds (Loretta Lynn, Fleetwood Mac and a sprinkle of early Dolly) creating this melting pot of modern-vintage twang.
This twangy-Americana pair started gaining traction when CMchat premiered their debut single and music video for “If I Knew.” Neon Moon’s dedicated fan base then shared the premier over 400 times helping the video to over 70k YouTube views. They also caught the attention of Nashville’s longest running independent radio station Lightning 100, who asked Neon Moon to play on their sponsored porch at Westhaven’s Porchfest – a festival with over 12,000 attendees just down the road on I-65 South in Franklin, Tennessee.
In October of 2017, No Depression picked up the debut for their second single “Smoke.” The official video for “Smoke” was then premiered by influential website PopMatters, and has since amassed over 90K views between YouTube and Facebook. “Smoke” generated enough buzz to catch the attention of Starbucks who has added the song to their music library and to the Starbucks Country spotify playlist.
These partners in crime (and music) continue to nurture their love of songwriting by making sure to write constantly while preparing to release new music in 2020, and continually posting new raw songs and and videos on their social media and website.
