For the last three years, we've self-recorded, self-produced, self-mixed, self-mastered, self-released, self-distributed, and self-promoted three individual albums. One a year. For three years.
We're super proud of that. We're ready for more ...that's where you come in.
We've made so much progress as a band over the last three years, and we don't want to slow down. We want to tour, we want to get our music heard by a larger audience, and most importantly, we want to keep creating.
Ultimately, we want to make a new album. Obviously. But we want to approach it differently.
This go round, we want to get into a recording studio. We want to work with producers, we want to hire professionals to help us mix and master our new content, we want to film more video content to release along side with new music. We have huge plans for the rest of 2017, but we definitely can't do it alone.
That's why we just launched a Patreon account. Patreon is a way for you, our fans, to directly contribute to us being able to continuing making music. Check it out. For the price of basically one trip to Starbucks a month, you can provide immeasurable resources to our efforts to further the amazing progress we've made over the last couple of years.
Thank you so much, friends, family, and strangers to pushing us and supporting us throughout all of our endeavors. Here's to another three years.
We are SO EXCITED to share that we have a new song coming out SO SOON!
We had the amazing pleasure of collaborating with producer Ryland Steen and Pot O' Gold Recordings to capture this brand new track that we are insanely excited for. We just finished recording the new single on Friday, so stay tuned for more info regarding it's release.
Happy new year everyone! It's Feb. I know. We've been busy, OK?
For starters, WE GOT VERIFIED ON SPOTIFY! Thank you so much to everyone that's followed us, and followed along. This is such a cool accomplishment for us.
We have some upcoming shows, and some cool stuff in the works, as well as some new tunes, of course. Stay tuned, and come see us soon!
First of, we want to send a massive thank you to EVERYONE involved in getting this album out. We are so pleased to officially announce that our brand new, full-length debut LP "HURRY UP AND WAIT" is OFFICIALLY available to stream / purchase through Spotify, Google Play, iTunes, and Apple Music.

So, we received the hard copies of our new album Hurry Up and Wait, and we've filed all the forms for our digital distribution package, but there have been a few hangups. We're currently working with Spotify to get our album up and listed correctly. Shouldn't be more than a week or so. As far as iTunes/Apple Music, we'll probably have it up there within the week as well. We'll be sure to announce to everyone when it has officially gone live.
This latest fiasco in releasing the album makes the album title feel even more appropriate. We rushed the album delivery so that the digital and physical releases would coincide, but now we have a wait ahead of us. Either way, we're so excited for everyone to start listening. While the digital side of things is getting worked out, we're also working on submitting to a few local radio stations, online and over the air. We'll hopefully work up the nerve to submit a song to KROQ Locals Only in the next couple of weeks (at least until the digital marketplaces have the album).
As always, thanks for your support!

Hey everyone, sorry it's been a few months since we've posted here. If you've been paying attention to our Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, you know we have been a busy bunch. We are officially DONE with the new album! We're so excited to share it with everyone and we really think you'll like it. It's definitely a new turn of genre for Moonlight Graham, but it's still our style of songwriting.
Again, if you haven't been paying attention to our other social media, the new album is titled
"Hurry Up and Wait". We chose that name for obvious reasons, that's exactly what it felt like during the recording, mixing, and mastering process. All of the waiting was absolutely worth it, the album honestly sounds unreal, everyone gave quality performances and the whole album shines. We couldn't be more proud of the work we put in.
Now that we're just focusing on playing shows (lots of them, keep an eye on our Shows page as we update it) and getting our new music out there, we'll be able to post much more frequently to keep everyone up to date, but please follow us on our social media pages if you haven't already!
Hey all! Just a quick updated for you today,
We are officially FINISHED with the production aspect of the new album. We are taking all of the beautiful, expensive, and ridiculously good-sounding equipment back to Micworks from whence it came. We got to work with pieces of equipment that we would have only dreamed of (or payed thousands and thousands of dollars to use in a local studio), but because we rented, it was right in our budget.
As we say so-long to the recording process, with all our instruments and vocals recorded, we move into the daunting post-production phase. Mixing and Mastering. We'll keep you updated as things move along, but this might take a while...mainly because we'll be releasing 12 BRAND NEW ORIGINAL SONGS on this album! We're so excited we were able to push through and write this many songs to share with you all. For the firs time ever we wrote during the recording process, as opposed to having all the songs written before we came in to record, and we are thrilled with how everything turned out.
Stay tuned! More content on the way, and make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for day by day updates of the post production process! And make sure the check out the Shows page here on our website for new show dates.
Well, we are officially three weeks into our new album, and we are more excited than ever.
Drums are completely recorded and mixed, and Wes is completely finished recording his acoustic guitar. We've started recording Andrew's electric, Jordan's bass and Alyssa's violin. We'll finish up vocals in the next week or so, and then we'll take a few weeks to mixed and master it all.
HUGE thanks and props to our producer (and guitarist) Andrew for all of the work he's put in so far. He's single-handedly recorded every session, he's mixing and mastering every track, and producing our entire album. And he's being such a boss about it.
We're still tossing around album title name ideas, but there are a few ones we are leaning towards. Once everything is said and done, and we have our new 12 track album, we will plan a big CD release party somewhere in LA or OC. Stay tuned, stay posted, and thanks for listening.
Here are some photos of the process so far. Enjoy!
We have officially broke ground on our new album, and we couldn't be more excited! All of the drums are tracked, and ready to rock and roll. Now, over the next several weeks, we will continue the recording process by tracking the rest of our instruments and vocals, and hopefully have our new TWELVE TRACK album ready for a late summer release!
Stay tuned for more information regarding a CD release party toward the end of summer, as well as when we'll release our first single off of our new -- really amazing album.
Here's a couple pictures from our day recording drums:
