Wise Old Moon
Wise Old Moon has been showcasing their distinct brand of twang-infused indie roots/rock since early 2013 when frontman Connor Zane Millican returned from traveling the open roads of the American West after leaving his hometown of Hartford, CT at a young age. Upon his arrival to New England, Millican set out to form a band that would pay homage to the long-standing tradition of folk and Americana music while breathing new life into the genre with a high-octane live energy and a unique brand of songwriting inspired by the desert planes and mountain ranges of the Midwest.
Three years and over 200 performances later, Wise Old Moon is currently comprised of a cast of talented players from around the Northeast including Ian Meadows (The Meadows Brothers) on electric guitar who offers up a gritty twang that has become a staple of the Wise Old Moon sound. Drummer and percussionist Stephen Cusano (Broca’s Area) brings with him his own influ-ences, including modern hip-hop, conveying colorful rhythms and offering a huge sound and energy for their live performances.
Typically Wise Old Moon will tap into the local talent in their hometown of Hartford, CT for bass players, horn players, vocalists and piano players. “I hope to continue creating original music and keeping things fresh by introducing new collaborators into the project as we evolve. We’re fortunate enough to be based out of a city that has a great music school; Hart School of Music at the University of Hartford, and we have worked with so many talented musicians on stage and in the studio to realize our sound over the years. We are constantly re-working our own material and challenging ourselves to create a memorable live experience, so you never know what we might do next at a show”, Millican says.
Wise Old Moon has been featured on WPNR’s Where We Live with John Dankosky and has been nominated for numerous CT Music Awards as well as a New England Music Award for Roots Act of the Year in 2016. The band has self-released two full length studio albums and has performed at some of the most well-known venues in and clubs in the Northeast.
Wise Old Moon is currently writing and recording their third full-length record aside from touring.
