Even though you might not think “gypsy anything” based on the equation of music I used above to describe [Band on the Moon’s] sound, use your imagination when I say that they create a unique brand of gypsy-blues-rock that incorporates sounds from all of the above. It’s very cool, with that kinda hip, slightly under-produced quality that makes it sound almost like it was recorded at a live show. Different songs feature both male and female vocals, and I will admit, I prefer the female vocals at the forefront. There’s nothing wrong with the others, just that the female has a bit of a quiver in her wail that reminds me of Cocorosie, whom I love. The general instrumentation is expanded upon with a bit of banjo on song three, “The Professionals,” which is my favorite because of the folksy feel it gets from the extra strings." - SLUG Magazine

With a female vocalist (Felicia Anderton) that is reminiscent of Gwen Stefani in the older No Doubt days, it’s no wonder that [Band on the Moon] will be seeing a bright future very soon. The talent that inhabits this band is phenomenal; not only is Anderton amazing but the guitar riffs, drumbeats, and male vocal harmonies all pair perfectly together. - SSG Music


"Man, I love chicks who rock. And this chick totally rocks—lead singer Felicia Anderton ties up this package most delightfully, with a vintage voice that is somehow exactly what this rock n’ roll outfit wants. The musicians are totally together, the recording quality is good, and the sound is specific and has direction. Go figure. Influences vary widely, which I love, and from undeniable rock to beautiful ballads, the talent on this album is heartwarming. A reasonable release for a seasoned band, the fact that it is the product of teenagers working with Spy Hop is astounding on several levels. I look forward to hearing much more from all of these talented musicians, in this band and in their future endeavors." - P. Buchanan, Slug Magazine

Bio

Band on the Moon (formerly called The Direction) is a blues-rock outfit with a sound you won't find anywhere else but the ears they continue to please. Ever since first meeting at music school, this locally acclaimed band has kicked down the poorly padded door and is ready to show you the how blues is done right. Vocalist, Felicia Anderton, sings with a passion rarely seen this side of Tallahassee. Pair that passion with the mesmerizing guitar work of Elan Bartholomew and Steve Hutchinson, the pounding drum rhythms from Addison Aldous', and the buttery goodness of Amber Waldron's bass technique, and these soulful artists set a new bar for versatility. The band's latest EP "Deal with the Devil" has already made waves since it was released in August of 2012, and their forthcoming new full-length album (set to be released in Summer of 2013) is on track to be a huge success in the band's career.
