As the very first performer of the night, there weren’t a lot of people in attendance to see Elijah & The Moon on Wednesday night. Those who did come out early to see the indie-folk trio were treated to a set of great singer-songwriting.
The groups folk core with two guitars and Elijah’s pure and powerful vocal style, served as the backbone of the songs in the set including ‘Stompin’, ‘The Mountainside’, and a pretty solid cover of the folk standard and ‘500 Miles’, which has been revived since featured on Inside Llewyn Davis. Similar sounding to groups like Lord Huron, Gregory Alan Isakov, or Milo Greene, Elijah & The Moon build their sound around acoustic rhythms and chord progressions fit for a campfire storytelling. While their live show and performance is still in it’s growing stages, the pure music of the group should build an easy to listen to foundation while they grow as performers.
