Moone wows home­town fans

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

Te Puke songstress Moone re­leased her de­but sin­gle at the iconic Litt Park The­atre on Fri­day, Septem­ber 28 to a full house.

Jack Kear­ney opened the night with a mix­ture of cov­ers and orig­i­nals us­ing guitar and looper ped­als.

Many close sup­port­ers trav­elled from as far afield as Auck­land and Welling­ton to see and hear Moone’s big de­but. And she blew us all away. Moone’s song­writ­ing has been bol­stered by Phill Reha’s po­tent ar­range­ments and licks. Sub­tle but solid, his guitar sits just un­der her voice and only rises for sonic ef­fect when it has to.

Pound­ing at the back on drums is Si­las Tawhara, just do­ing ev­ery­thing right and Josh Reha lays the bass vibe per­fectly.

The con­cert was the de­but re­lease of the sin­gle (drunken lit­tle bitch), a song fit­tingly about friend­ship and good times.

Along with the sin­gle re­lease dig­i­tally on iTunes, Spo­tify and Google Play, Moone also re­leased the video of the song on Face­book and Youtube.

Moone isn’t new to the mu­sic scene, and it shows. She has got her style and sass all sorted and knows ex­actly where she’s tak­ing this, and my pick is she’ll get there.

You may as well get in on it now ’cause you’re go­ing to later.

Be­sides a good band, good sup­port and good singing, the killer in­gre­di­ent here is good songs. Re­ally, re­ally, re­ally good songs.

Moone has ar­rived. The sin­gle and video are great and I can’t wait for the al­bum.
