One listen to Apple & The Moon’s debut self-titled album, and one can feel the genuine rustic soul flowing from the speakers. It’s like sweet Appalachian amber glistening from a freshly tapped maple tree under an early morning August sun. One might also smell the aroma of ember from a crisp autumn evening campfire. Take a deeper listen and one may hear the haunting wild sounds of an ornery pack of nomadic coyotes wondering restlessly by starlight under a spring southeastern Ohio moon. Like heartwarming graceful harmonies with a crunch of crisp October leaves, Apple and the Moon’s rootsy organic sound is as versatile and manic as Midwest American weather can be. Mixing and melding elements of porch pickin blues, back country folk, heartland honesty and gritty street stained rock, Elena Aiello (vocals, guitar), Nick Collura (guitar, vocals), Todd Parish (drums, vocals), and Mike Makosky (bass,vocals) have mined and forged an original and fresh sound all their own as lush as hemlock and as real and strong as the very coal that lies hidden within the hills of their Appalachian home. Formed in southeastern Ohio around 2014, Apple & The Moon persistently continues to carve out their musical path by bringing many top-notch booty shakin, toe tappin, drink raisin and soul satisfying songs to any venue where they perform. So come on and strap on your hiking shoes, throw on your headphones and take a journey with Apple & The Moon.
