Joon Moon's story started in 2014 in Montmartre, Paris, in the studio of the excessively discreet Julien Decoret - with Phoebe Killdeer giving breath to his first lyric sheets. The indefatigable Moon's aim was to continue creating, after touring with Nouvelle Vague, Florent Marchet etc, and start his own project.
With all the creative decisions already made for keyboards, vocals and drums, Julien joined up with his pals Raphael Chassin and Sébastien Trouvé for both the studio recording and stage show that they had already collectively imagined.
In early 2015, thanks to chance encounters and other musically-minded friends like Marc Collin and Hugh Coltman, Julien Decoret met another artist with an impressive live show (and someone just as reserved as he is) - Krystle Warren, born in Kansas City and recently arrived in France.
The four had mutual friends, and after a few try-outs in the studio and a misunderstanding about a certain Alice / Juliette Lewis (a story that makes them all laugh even today) a real synergy came to pass, with Joon Moon the result - both in the studio and on stage.
Their first e.p. "Chess", released late 2015, showcases a mix of precise and impressive pop and soul arrangements, hinting that the album due in 2016 will be an exciting discovery, joyfully crashing through numerous musical barriers.
A word of warning though - the siren-like voice of Krystle Warren may have you addicted to Joon Moon before you know it! "Apple Day", "Chess" and "Help Me" are the first taste of a debut album undoubtedly full of surprises.

After a of near death experience in 2010 in a good samaritan act MAK landed up in a hospital bed for several months, with nothing but reflecting on his heart’s desires and reflecting on his purpose to comfort him. The reflection turned to epiphany and a renewed vigor and dedication to his original craft, once again as a writer and frontman. MAK Feels content from this recounting and has since has carved a life of hard grafting behind the scenes. Thus MAK is performing his songs to share with others, to take them to the realms of outer space when down here on earth things are getting a bit messy. Now more than ever, he believes in the power of music to heal, to bring joy and to comfort.

MAK’s music ranges from lighthearted latin rhythm inspired narratives to haunting and ambient explorations into some of the most uncomfortable, yet eerily alluring corners of life that we try so hard to ignore. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but there’s a transformational tale in 'Outer Space", that will move you to another dimension. His is a calling that cannot be ignored. All previous works unpublished will form the foundation of your listening enjoyment with his first ever full studio album. The debut of a late bloomer…. MAK.
