Earth Moon Earth

Starting as an experimental project created by drummer and producer Dan Joeright, Earth Moon Earth evolved quickly into a cosmic rock collective that has hosted a wide variety of collaborating musicians. Originating from Joshua Tree with roots spreading from Los Angeles to London, this sonically rich rhythm and synth-based project blends elements of electronic, space, dub and psychedelic rock, creating vast cinematic soundscapes.

In 2018 Earth Moon Earth released their self-titled debut album to critical acclaim. Since then, Earth Moon Earth has opened for trip-hop pioneers Morcheeba on two tours and played a number of festivals including Desert Stars and the Joshua Tree Music Festival. Their instrumental “Seven Sisters” was featured on the Starz television series “Now Apocalypse” created by Steven Soderberg and Greg Jacobs. For the band, experimentation in the high desert continues, with new music ready to release in 2022 as a series of singles and a second album in the pipeline. The first single from this collection – GLIDE – will be released on March 15, 2022. The immersive instrumental music for Glide was recorded live in their Joshua Tree studio (Gatos Trail) and then sent to Skye Edwards in London where she added her brand of dark, dreamy vocalizations. The video for Glide was directed by graphic novelist David Ouimet and is a hauntingly beautiful, animated fairy tale. Glide’s video is perfectly coupled with the ominous composition which features producer Dan Joeright (The Rentals) drums, Skye Edwards (Morcheeba) vocals, Jonathan Hischke (Broken Bells) Bass, Esteban Chavez (The Freeks) Synths, Bob Villwock – Keys and Glitch – Theremin.

The band’s name is derived from the Earth-Moon-Earth radio communications technique of bouncing radio waves off the moon to extend a shortwave radio signal around the curvature of the Earth. A fitting name as the band is also expanding its range, creating music without limits, beyond genres, and working to establish a lasting connection. Shortwave radio, as a musical instrument, is also one of the less common sounds one can hear on an Earth Moon Earth recording, perhaps accompanied by tympani or theremin. 

The current live-band lineup for Earth Moon Earth is:

  • Drums – Dan Joeright (The Rentals)
  • Vocals – Jasmine Ash
  • Synths – Esteban Chavez (The Freeks)
  • Theremin – Glitch
  • Guitar – Rich Good (The Psychedelic Furs)
  • Bass – Jonathan Hischke (Broken Bells)
  • Keyboards – Bob Villwock

with collective contributions from many others including:

Skye Edwards (Morcheeba), Gabriella Evaro, Be Hussey (Radar Bros, Tangients), Heather Paauwe (Enya), Ryan Johnson, Gabriela Teran, Vincent Signorelli (Unsane) & Algis Kizys (Swans).
