At its core, The Moon and You is a charismatic husband-and-wife team. Melissa Hyman plays cello and bass, Ryan Furstenberg plays guitar and banjo. Whatever you might assume based on their gorgeous vocal blend and heartfelt lyrics, this ain’t your basic folk duo! With a rotating cast of talented friends to add unexpected instrumentation to their lineup, The Moon and You never plays the same show twice. This ever-evolving, expandable / collapsible model means the band is constantly reinventing itself in ways both surprising and satisfying.
Whatever the lineup, the Moon and You sound is always warm and inviting, atmospheric and playful. Both Hyman and Furstenberg are well developed songwriters with distinctive voices. Their songs range in style from classic to quirky. Lyrics-driven and intellectual with a keen ear for arrangement, they make music perfectly suited to a listening room or a pair of good headphones.
Since 2015 The Moon and You has put out two live EPs and four full-length studio albums. These range stylistically from summery rock and roll to dark and brooding, string-heavy arrangements to 2019’s Big Mystery, a sweet and earthy album of lullabies for people of all ages. Their most recent release Asteroids (digital only release, October 2020) really crystalizes their signature blend of sophisticated Americana, wild goofy romps and dreamy, psychedelic soundscapes. Check out their music on the usual streaming platforms, or at themoonandyou.bandcamp.com.
Furstenberg and Hyman are currently at work on a new, collaborative record with their besties in Fwuit! (former members of Moves, which was once a regionally beloved rock band called Holy Ghost Tent Revival), release date TBD. At once excitingly inventive and cozily familiar, the Moon & You never stops pushing the creative envelope and evolving a sound all their own.
