Austin-based musician Jeffrey Moon brings a fresh approach to the singer-songwriting tradition. Primarily using a nylon-string guitar and a 'no-picks' approach, Jeffrey's interweaving vocal and guitar lines lend a unique contribution to the Austin scene and the songwriting genre. With over 20 years of gigging and composing, Jeffrey combines his love of hip hop, Latin, jazz, folk, drum and bass, and classical music into a collection of songs being released in June 2010, named Conscious Pilot.
Moon's past has brought him a wider range of experiences than the 'musician' moniker implies, and it shows in his lyrics and compositional maturity. More than an artist, Moon has dedicated years on the pavement working with people from a wide range of backgrounds, earning a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work before his transplant to Austin. Always the entrepreneur, Jeffrey launched a non-profit agency pairing artists and young adults in the foster-care system when he was 22, and now helps runs a small boutique software design company in Austin, Texas.
All of these experiences, coupled with a wide range of musical influence, make for a collection of songs compelling and deceptively simple, with earnest lyrics that reveal the beauty in sadness and the common roots of our Human experience.
