Age: 12
Style: Classic rock, progressive soundscapes
Influences: David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Jean-Michel Jarre
Main Guitar: Fender Stratocaster with EMG pickups
Location: Novato, California

Background: Moon became interested in the guitar at age three, and began receiving formal instruction three years later. Originally influenced by early rock and rollers such as Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly, Moon’s main sources of inspiration expanded to include David Gilmour and Jeff Beck. Moon also sings and plays violin, cello, piano, and flute.

In 2003, the young guitarist received an endorsement from EMG pickups after a representative saw him playing at Zone Music in Cotati, California. Moon has recorded several of his original compositions, which are very impressive, especially considering his age. He employs effects to create moods that bring to mind progressive artists such as Pink Floyd.
