The album “Traces Of Time” is out on Nobel Records.

Moon ontherun finally presents the album “Traces of Time”. 
A collection of 13 songs inspired by the great pop-legends in pop-music’s earlier days and also by contemporary pop music. The album is the result of a musical journey that started with composer and pianist Roger Thierry Matte’s passion for harmony-based pop music.

While trying out various singers Ingeborg Riis one day appeared in Roger’s home studio to do a test of the song “For A While”. 
Roger was amazed by Ingeborg’s voice and he knew, this was the voice for his songs.
Initially “just” as a vocalist on the project, Ingeborg got more and more involved in the process, participating with ideas and different advise for the production. Roger states that Ingeborg had an important role and the songs would be far from how they turned out to be without her.

The single “Sun On My Horizon” is out on Nobel Records.

“Sun On My Horizon” is a catchy and brilliant produced up-tempo song. The song, with its airy and easy-going approach, tells the story of fading feelings and how a dance of hope can help to prove that all is not lost.

The song is released along with a path-breaking video created by one of the world`s most admired 3D-animators, PandaGunda (Rihanna etc).

Our third single “Prepared”
is out on Nobel Records.

‘Prepared` is a final reckoning. A song about being bitterly
disappointed, shutting down one’s feelings, and preparing the heart to never be hurt again.

This up-tempo homage to the pioners of harmonies and vintage pop music features a driving bassline by the eminent bass player Jonny Sjo of D’sound.

Our second single “Want to tell you”
is out on Nobel Records.

Want To Tell You is a passionate powerful ballad starting with Roger playing the piano and Ingeborgs sad, but yet hopeful vocals. The song reaches its emotional climax with an oriental vocal-solo by the magnificent Rola Srour at the end of the song. The lyrics express a story of regret and mournfulness for a lost opportunity, the reason for which we may never know.

Our first single “Dreams I’ve Had”
is out on Nobel Records.

Dreams I’ve had is MOON ontherun’s first single. The song shows some of the hallmarks of the duo’s style: A strong melody-lined tune
combined with sophisticated harmonies give us a powerful pop-song. Dreams I’ve Had is about a deep love that rises and falls between conscious imaginings and unconscious dreams.
