Marcus Moon marries the present with the past in his neo-classic score ‘Wedding Waltz’

Canadian Neo-classic artist and composer, Marcus Moon, released their highly-anticipated debut album, ‘Letters from the Moon’, as 2020 drew to a close. His “classical music for modern times” is an all too welcome distraction from the same modernity it reflects.

The refined decadence in the lead single ‘Wedding Waltz’ is the aural equivalent to slipping into a Jane Austen novel; it’s grandiose without becoming theatrical. Instead, through his command of vivid melodies, Marcus Moon is able to paint a neo-classic portrait which evokes emotion instead of forcing emotion upon you; allowing the timeless tones to resonate as much in your own world as they would in an imagined archaic fantasy (we all have those, right?).

Marcus Moon’s debut album is now available to stream via Spotify.
