Bio

Hailing from Iowa City, Iowa Mitch Moylan and The Cedars of Lebanon pack a unique fusion of lyrical ballad and folk rock meant to engage the listener on an existential level. Mitch Moylan's EP Ashes and Dust is brought to new life behind the backdrop of driving drums and over-driven, ethereal guitar conjuring up intimations of U2, Dave Matthews, and Tom Delonge. One writer has described the songs as "piano-driven parables of redemption and destruction." The focal point of The Cedars is to bring to life the lyrical images of Mitch Moylan and create an intimate setting where the listener can understand Moylan's message. Moylan is known to tell stories during the breakdown of songs such as "Do You Think about It?" He is also known to use the practice of slam poetry in order to engage the listener on a different plane. The band was formed by Moylan in mid-August of 2009 in order to add new depth to the live performances of the Ashes and Dust EP. Even though the EP was solely recorded by Moylan, the dimensions of over-driven guitar and rolling drumbeats not recorded on the EP provide a unique live performance sure to leave the listener thought-provoked
