Floating between themes and genres while maintaining a uniquely recognizable sound, PJ Moon & the Swappers pride themselves on pushing the envelope of musical complexity in an originally inventive way. They are doing just that with their new song “Lights Out”. A behind the scenes look into the recording of their upcoming EP, Soul Fashioned, “Lights Out” is a steady groove – perfect for the kind of jam you would hear on a bar stage. “Lights Out” captures the essence of the diversity and unique fusion that this band is becoming known for. On the verge of wrapping up their west coast tour, PJ Moon & The Swappers are combining elements of jazz, blues, indie, and funk to create a modern fusion of rock and soul music. The highlight of the band is in the musicianship of each of the players, all working together to keep a tight groove. If this is the teaser to the album, we can’t wait to see what’s coming next.
Based in Durango, CO, bandleader PJ Moon rallied a diverse
team of jazz, blues, indie, and funk players originally “swapping” out every
few shows. The group soon developed into a four piece of committed musicians:
Charlie Henry (Bass/Vocals), Dylon Drake (Lead Guitar), Cord Drake (Drums), and
PJ Moon (Guitar/Vocals). Each member
fostering the band’s unique style with a complex musical technicality and
musicianship, PJ Moon & The Swappers have taken their expression of soul
from the west to the east, playing shows in historic venues from Jackson Hole
to New York City at the famed B.B. Kings Club in Times Square.
