The Mighty and the Moon Short Info

''Beautifully mature songs'' - David Burns (BBC Radio Humberside)

'Holy crap! These guys are a hit! Massive!!! This is the future of music!! I Love the smell of a hit in the morning." - Chris Wienk (Programme Director, Exit 97.7 WEXT, New York)

"The Mighty and the Moon are a band of stark contrasts. At times they create the kind of blues-soaked, back-room folk-rock that would sound right at home in Tom Waits' record collection, with gnarled, powerful vocals, spiky lead guitar and darkly brilliant songwriting - try 'Ghost' on the music player and you'll see what we mean. And then, at times, The Mighty & The Moon's music is dazzlingly pretty, with lush chords and upbeat compositions. Catch this band for a journey through the light and shade of the folk-rock genre." - Galtres Parklands Festival

"We were recharging in the food hall when this four piece from Hull took to the Main Stage. Lunches immediately discarded, we went in search of the upbeat alternative country sounds and found ourselves pleasantly jigging along to The Mighty and the Moon. The band take a tried and tested indie-folk formula and add some sultry country guitar and powerful, emotive vocals to create music that you can't help but warm to. We now count ourselves big fans of The Mighty and the Moon." - Nadine Wilson (Pepper)
