Moon Looks On releases new EP ‘Way Out West’

May 12, 2023

Moon Looks On is releasing an album of true to the bone contemporary folk and roots music.

‘Four Miles As The Crow Flies’ is the first single from this eagerly awaited new album which was recorded and produced by acclaimed producer Bill Shanley and the opening track is due for release in early May on Cauldron Records.

The imagery behind the track reflect the two years Moon Looks On spent writing music in a small converted Barn in South Sligo, a place brimming with songs and folklore, great surf, & breath-taking scenery where the hills and the mountains stretch out towards the sea’ and the tunes are carried on the wind.

Over the past few years singer/songwriter Stephen Gormley has been carving out a name for himself on the Irish & international music scene, with appearances at music festivals and venues such as, Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, All Together Now, 2000 Trees Festival, & The Ruby Sessions to name but a few, along with performances on the renowned TV show “Other Voices” on Irelands premier broadcasting channel RTE.

Moon Looks On has also had tracks from his album ‘Razor Wire Skies’ added to the much sought after “New Music Friday” Spotify playlist whilst amassing over a quarter of a million streams on Spotify. His music videos and tracks have also premiered in Hot-press magazine, Irish Independent & Golden-Plec and on both Irish and UK Radio stations such as 2FM ,Today FM, RTE 1, 2XM, & Radio X in Manchester.

The album features contributions from seasoned musicians Laura Ryder (keys), Aisling Bridgeman (violin), Martin Ditcham (drums), as well as additional instrumentation from producer Bill Shanley and mix engineer Andrew Holdsworth.
