Half Moon Run
From the Promoter
“I'm going to be cheeky here and pick one band […] Half Moon Run - potentially one of the most important bands debuting an album this year. It's progressive without being pretentious.” Ben Lovett, Mumford & Sons, in NME on Oct 3rd, 2012
"What most agreed was the best new band of the week, Half Moon Run. The Montreal trio match songwriting (and harmonies) of ‘60’s folk rock with the atmospherics of Radiohead. I was instantly impressed"- Brooklyn Vegan at M for Montreal, November, 2011
Half Moon Run is a talented young band from Ottawa, Ontario and Comox, British Columbia. Coming together in Montreal, QC, they first connected and cultivated a shared dream of what music should be. In the long hours in their Mile-End district practice space, they sculpted the sound that would become their tempestuous and rapturous debut album, Dark Eyes. They’re musically deft multi-instrumentalists, not constrained to one instrument alone. Together, they sing, all voices united, reflecting a singular vision, and sound.
This past year the band has toured with some of the biggest acts to date; Mumford & Sons, Metric, Patrick Watson and Of Monsters and Men. The international buzz hit fever pitch, with Half Moon Run deemed one of the "Top Bands To See" at SXSW 2013. Half Moon Run also performed this summer at CBC Music Fest, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Leeds and Reading festivals. Half Moon Run's debut album Dark Eyes, released in Canada by Indica Records, has been picked up by Glassnote Entertainment Group and released internationally where the band are already making waves. Their song “Call Me in the Afternoon,” was hand-picked as the prestigious ‘Hottest Record in the World’ by influential BBC DJ Zane Lowe, while Rolling Stone Magazine hails Half Moon Run as the band to watch.
Half Moon Run are: Devon Portielje, Conner Molander, Dylan Phillips, and Isaac Symonds
