Canada's roots/swing duo Over The Moon, are totally immersed in real cowboy country.. When you set up home in the foothills of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, it's inevitable there will be a strong sense of place -and the rhythms of the land- when you start to make music.
This is the couple's debut album, mostly written and recorded on the ranch where they live, and the resonances are there for all to hear, reflecting the pulse of life living in a territory that is rugged and beautiful.
It's a wild ride that takes in styles from 40's western swing and Appalachian old-time, to cowboy blues, all featuring their meant-to-be vocals and a wide array of acoustic instruments.
Sim[ple and sweet, from the title track, "Moondancer" (given to them by their neighbor Ian Tyson) to "Tutle Mountain" which documents the 1903 Crowsnest Pass disaster known as The Frank Slide, all of the material here seems to have a common thread that speaks the Canadian west!
