Local indie pop singer-pianist Tim Moon draws from a diverse well of musical inspiration. On the one hand, the takes inspiration from the high energy piano playing of Elton John and Ben Folds and on the other, he draws from the catchy songwriting of an indie band like Fun. That’s not to mention the theatrical, Queen-inspired side of his sound.
Formerly of the band Don't Fear the Sun, Moon started performing as a solo act back in 2014. He sold out his first two headlining shows at Mahalls and recently released his first single, the Ben Folds-like “Going Out Tonight.” He celebrates the release of his new album, Solace
, with a concert that takes place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 26, at the Beachland Ballroom
, where he performs with a 16-piece band. Essential Groove opens.
