Boston's Blue Moon Harem To Release Long Awaited Second Album

Boston, MA - Music aficionados across the globe are waiting anxiously for the sophomoric release by one of Boston's hidden musical treasures Blue Moon Harem. Having survived some of the toughest years in the music business, the dynamic and diversely-talented duo at the heart of Blue Moon Harem, guitarist Demetri Joannou and guitarist/vocalist Jon Bix are ready to take on the next phase of their career with the release of 'Finland'. Actively seeking to challenge themselves and their listeners through a unique and captivating sound propelled by a spellbinding stage performance, Blue Moon Harem's second album 'Finland' is a remarkable collection of creative non-categorical modern music. The new CD also boasts the talents of drummer Steve Hart, who previously worked with Aerosmith axeman Joe Perry, among others.

Singer/songwriter Jonathan Bix is the voice and soul of Blue Moon Harem. On eleven new songs Jonathan delivers a towering yet vulnerable vocal performance which mesmerizes and captivates audiences everywhere. Guitarist Demetri Joannou, the band's co-songwriter, along with Jonathan, writes the incredible music that is the heart of Blue Moon Harem. Demetri deftly combines keen instinct with raw talent to create passages of atmosphere, beauty and power.

"Exploding into the jangly support of “Stay,” this latest album from Blue Moon Harem makes the listener want to follow their musical directives for the better part of this better-than-most album. From the gritty hush of “Give and Take,” the acoustically exposing “Here I Am,” the light Pop of “I See Red” and the jam band-y groove of “Beautiful Danger” to the anthemic bouncer “Dotted Line” and the haunting howls of the shivery title track, the diversity of sounds on this 11-track album impresses and intrigues. Far from the Monty Python classic of the same name, this “Finland” is a serious set that travels far and wide on broad musical wings supported by the dynamic duo of Jonathan Bix and Demetri J. and their talented team of sessioners. Professionally produced by Jim Siegel at The Outpost in Stoughton, “Finland” is a well-devised and well-delivered package that takes listeners far away and yet is rooted in solid songwriting and care for the craft." - Matt Robinson, Dirty Water News

In the last few years, praise for the band's first hit “Addiction”, from the eponymous debut CD 'Blue Moon Harem', has quickly spread all across the New England states. Beginning with airplay of this pulsing alternative rock hit on WAAF's local radio show in Boston, along with the group's other hits, “Ride” and “Dog's Life”, Blue Moon Harem's popularity has grown to such a level that their music has been featured in the independent film 'Under Surveillance' from New York based Fourth Horizon Cinema and other films from Sorry Dog Productions.

Having recently been signed to the impressive roster of 7th Planet Entertainment Group in Texas, Blue Moon Harem has been attracting great attention from writers and fans across the globe. They have also gained the attention of the Boston-based talent agency HearNowLive. “I listened to Blue Moon Harem and realized that they would fill a void for music venues in many areas,” says 7th Planet CEO Keli Pearce, who appreciated BMH's “upbeat, ear friendly pop music” that, she says, has “no pretensions other than to entertain.” Demetri adds,” Our message is clear – we want people to listen to our music and become inspired. We write about the full gamut of emotions and experiences that many people can relate to.”

Blue Moon Harem's acoustic sets have become a regular occurrence in New York clubs and the band continues to expand its touring schedule almost as broadly as their musical repertoire. “New York is embracing them with several shows set from Brooklyn to Manhattan,” says Keli Pearce. “Both members are gifted musicians whose sole goal is to have people hear their sound! Talent, versatility and humility – these guys are abundantly equipped with them all!” Along with Steve Hart on drums and Pep Hernandez on bass, Bix and Demetri plan on performing tracks from the new album live. “We are all very excited to take the album to the stage,” says Demetri. “We believe the audiences will love our set.”

Blue Moon Harem is officially releasing their anticipated second CD 'Finland' at a special show at The Magic Room in Brighton, MA on Friday, September 16th.
