“I make music because it’s the one thing I do that really makes sense.” Truer words have never been spoken, by Ontario’s Billy Moon. Growing up in a small bed-and-breakfast town outside of Guelph, Billy Moon fell in love with fuzzy rock and roll from a young age. Listening to whatever radio stations his bedroom set could reach, he spent his puberty sharpening his skills as a music nerd. After high school, he went to McMaster University where he integrated himself into the Hamilton music community, and later released his first studio EP: Young Adult.
Things haven’t been the easiest for Billy Moon. Coming back from his first East Coast tour, he found himself in a hospital in rural Quebec when their car flipped twice after getting hit by a truck. By some Satanic miracle, everyone walked away unharmed, but there was still the nagging doubt that this was the end of music for Moon. Thankfully, one year later he’s come back with a new EP and an energetic live show that’s sure to make you realize that we’re all going to die but hey, maybe that’s ok.
