Canadian roots/swing duo Over The Moon's Suzanne Levesque and Craig Bignell are award winniing multi-instrumentalists/vocalists that met, fell in love, got married and discovered their voices blend so well together that people often tear up upon hearing them sing.

Living on a ranch in the foothills of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, it's inevitable there will be a strong sense of place and the rhythms of the land when you start to make music. When the couple released their debut album, the resonances were there for all to hear. reflecting the pulse of life,  lived in a territory that is both dirt-hard, rugged and beautiful. 

Alberta-based Over The Moon are getting rave reviews and gaining new friends and fans wherever they perform. Their first CD "Moondancer",  was released in 2017 and it reflects the beautiful two-part harmony style that they are known for and the wide array of acoustic instruments that they play. Most of the songs are original and tell stories of life lived in Southern Alberta's ranching country. It's a wild ride that takes in styles from 40s Western Swing and Appalachian Old-Time featuring their superb harmony vocals and a wide array of acoustic instruments.

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant! ”— Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales

“Together their voices have a timeless quality that suits this earthy music perfectly." — Paul Jackson, FATEA Magazine U.K.

Some might call it country music Some might call it bluegrass, or western music, but we know that with its accomplished songwriting, fantastic harmonies and great arrangements, it’s just darned good music. The live stage performances of Over The Moon are charming and engaging. You can’t get more real than these guys, with their story songs and their way of telling wholly engaging tales that bookend the songs. Theirs is a gentle, beautiful approach to harmonies, but they have a wonderfully fun and playful side as well.

Harmony yodeling, two styles of banjo, stand-up bass, guitar, great stage presence, and two amazing voices make you sit up and pay attention.

It’s a very different approach to country, western, and bluegrass. These guys are the real deal and approach those musical styles in a distinct way that will steal the heart of every member of the audience. Festival artistic directors, take note!
