Loop The Moon bring their special blend of funky house and soulful Latin jazz with percussive keys and vibrant vocal harmonies to create an uplifting set of original tunes, instant melodies and inspiring lyrics delivered with
warmth and passion.
The songs tell stories of hope and liberation, personal and collective challenges and celebrations, natural highs and positive vibes, embracing many musical genres.
All kinds of influences flow through the music from acid jazz to electro funk to rare groove to swing to gospel to techno with a sound reminiscent of Jamiroquai, Stevie Wonder, Incognito and Moloko.
Based in Brighton the band has appeared in various forms at many venues, festivals and parties including Glastonbury, Camden Roundhouse, Ronnie Scott's, Green Gathering, Small World Festival, Oxjam, Concorde 2, Verda and Kemptown Carnival.
"The Light" from the album Round & Around was recently featured on BBC Introducing.
LTM is driven and directed by singer-songwriter Mike Chantler who's been involved with many other creative and diverse projects.
