Joon Moon's story started in 2014 in Montmartre, Paris, in the studio of the excessively discreet Julien Decoret - with Phoebe Killdeer giving breath to his first lyric sheets. The indefatigable Moon's aim was to continue creating, after touring with Nouvelle Vague, Florent Marchet etc, and start his own project.
With all the creative decisions already made for keyboards, vocals and drums, Julien joined up with his pals Raphael Chassin and Sébastien Trouvé for both the studio recording and stage show that they had already collectively imagined.
In early 2015, thanks to chance encounters and other musically-minded friends like Marc Collin and Hugh Coltman, Julien Decoret met another artist with an impressive live show (and someone just as reserved as he is) - Krystle Warren, born in Kansas City and recently arrived in France.
The four had mutual friends, and after a few try-outs in the studio and a misunderstanding about a certain Alice / Juliette Lewis (a story that makes them all laugh even today) a real synergy came to pass, with Joon Moon the result - both in the studio and on stage.
Their first e.p. "Chess", released late 2015, showcases a mix of precise and impressive pop and soul arrangements, hinting that the album due in 2016 will be an exciting discovery, joyfully crashing through numerous musical barriers.
A word of warning though - the siren-like voice of Krystle Warren may have you addicted to Joon Moon before you know it! "Apple Day", "Chess" and "Help Me" are the first taste of a debut album undoubtedly full of surprises.

"The work of L.A. songwriter Eric J. McEntee stokes the fires kindled by ’70s folk and pop song artists whose lush, clarion songs are easy on the ears, if hard on the heart."
- Buzzbands.la

Born in California, schooled in New York City; Eric McEntee began writing songs almost as soon as he picked up a guitar and has written and performed regularly since. Busking in Paris, New York and California... His songwriting grew out of a devout interest in Folk Music: the glorious passage of songs nameless and ancient into whatever they might become…

The songs McEntee himself writes often carry the echo of another era but actually make subtle reference to a past that may have been lost, lost songwriters and songs alike, which informs his approach. Through his voice and guitar playing, McEntee is in numerous ways, a link to what he listens to most: The 1960's Greenwich Village Songwriter Milieu and countless other songwriters he discovered along the way that seemed forgotten by history: Bread, Love and Dreams, Rodriguez, Val Stoecklein, John Stewart to name a few…

With an ear toward writing something almost forgotten of his own, he previously self-released two EP’s; those who heard them were often stunned by the clarity of production and the songwriting form which seemed to be held some 50 years away... Time changes everything, but McEntee still holds to a simple practice where the only thing that matters is the song. The craft of songwriting seems perfectly analogous to discuss the mysteries, discoveries and nature at work in both life and music for him; one reflects the other. He's currently based in California.
