Seattle-based singer/songwriter/classically-trained cellist and illustrator Jeremiah Moon has recently released his debut EP Sputnik via Enci Records. Singles have included “Sugarbrain” and “Kinds of Light”. They reveal a brand of experimental Pop filtered through the sensibilities of a cellist.
The tracks that make up the Sputnik EP were recorded with friend and producer Adam Black in a remote cabin in Florence, OR, where they laid down the main tracks and pieced together the rest of the EP and arrangements over the next couple of years.
The son of a classically trained violinist mother, Moon would start taking cello lessons at age 7, playing music (solo, chamber music, and orchestra) all through high school. After graduating, Moon studied cello performance at Boston University.
In 2013, Jeremiah moved to Seattle and started accompanying guitarists for live shows and recording sessions, as well as working on his illustration skills and building a portfolio of his work. He says:
I started seriously working on songwriting in 2018 after being challenged by a friend to take myself more seriously as an artist. The 5 songs on my EP were a direct result of the momentum from this burst of inspiration.
