The Crew of the Half Moon began as indie/folk duo Dan and Kate in January of 2012. With the addition of their versatile drummer Claire, they expanded their sound to include elements of grunge, blues, pop-punk and more.
Dan and Kate are both multi-instrumentalists, sharing time on the guitar, lap steel, mandolin, harmonica, bass guitar, and piano while singing dynamic vocal harmonies. The Crew brings this eclectic blend of genres to the stage along with their playful lyricism and powerful vocal delivery.
Their live sets are a variety show - with two voices and a steady rotation of instruments, they create a set that appeals to a wide array of music fans. Their repertoire includes their own original songs as well as several hours of thoughtfully interpreted covers. Their debut album Automythography was released independently on iTunes and Amazon in January of 2013. As a trio, they are currently working on their second full-length album, Blanket Fort Radio, due out summer 2015.
