-Blasting off on a dance rock hybrid fueled by old-school synths as well as movies like Gravity and Planet Earth re-runs, it might seem like Moonwalker hail from a different universe altogether at first listen. That’s precisely the charm of this New York quartet—Rob Crews [vocals], Mark Neidhardt [guitar], Bryan Witt [bass], and Jake Albi [drums].
“We really love atmospheric sounds,” explains Mark. “For this band, much of the writing took place while watching outer space movies and nature documentaries. That really gave the music a different dynamic. The name says it all. It takes this space fascination and ties it into the dance aspect.”
Moonwalker first came to life in January 2017. Rob and Mark had just dissolved their previous band Reckless Serenade. In addition to playing Warped Tour 2016, the musicians spent three years cultivating a devout fan base with a series of independent releases, including the Out Here EP. The latter yielded the viral track “Pretty Monster,” which amassed over 166K Spotify streams. Along the way, Reckless Serenade earned praise from Alternative Press, AXS, and many more.
As the group amicably parted ways, Rob and Mark linked up with Bryan and Jake, bonding over a shared vision.
“We were all on the same page,” Mark continues. “We wanted to see how far we could take this. Everybody had the same mindset of taking things super seriously and not messing around.”

-from Hayward, CA
-“It all started when drummer, Shannon Soto broke off some tree branches, carved his first drum sticks and learned to play the drums. Joining after school jam sessions with his other two brothers Edwin and Isaac Soto, the Hayward based trio has been playing shows ever since. The Cires have a 'cult like' fan base all along the bay area and even overseas. Receiving positive feedback from fans as far as the UK, Canada, and Mexico. They hope to enter the studio in 2017 and record some new material they’ve been working on”
