Half Moon Run

Biography

Half Moon Run is a talented young trio from Ottawa, Ontario and Comox, British Columbia. It was in a studio situated in Montreal's Mile-End district, through the hardships of time constraints and flatlined bank accounts, that the trio bonded and created their unique sound, fusing together the restless elements of indie, pop and folk with beautiful rhythmic harmonies, delicate guitar lines and a hint of warm electronica.

Aged 21-25 years old, but armed with solid training and raw talent, they mix and combine their different musical backgrounds. Their complex arrangements, inspired by both classical and modern composers, are particularly surprising to hear and see during their live shows. Devon Portielje's remarkable voice is beautifully backed up by Connor Molander and Dylan Phillips. Phillips often plays drums and keys simultaneously as Molander and Portielje shuffle between guitar, keys, samplers, and percussion folky three-part harmonies hold down moody, psychedelic arrangements and electronic-infused soundscapes.

Although together for less than two years, the band has quickly caught the ear of programmers and tastemakers. In 2011 the trio wowed audiences at SXSW, CMW, M for Montreal and Great Escape.

Half Moon Run is vocalist/guitarist/drummer Devon Portielje, vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Conner Molander and keyboardist/vocalist/drummer Dylan Phillips.
