Newly formed duo Snowbird release their sumptuous debut album, Moon, on the superb Bella Union label. Both Simon Raymonde and Stephanie Dosen are no strangers to the music industry contributing to it in various forms over the years and it goes to show on this highly impressive record.
Moon was born from Raymonde’s discovery of a baby grand piano on Gumtree and it is the wonderful tones from this that really makes for a great record. Opening track Heard The Owl Call My Name and it is the aforementioned keys that really drive the tune along to create a real thing of beauty.
Dosen’s vocals are really something to behold and on tunes like Bears On My Trail it is these sumptuous tones from here that are really highlighted. Although only being as two piece Snowbird enlisted the help of a plethora of talented musicians to make Moon. An absolutely superb album is brought to an end by the enigmatic Heart Of The Woods which rounds off a great debut effort from Snowbird.
