A five-piece jam and alternative rock outfit hailing from Nashville, Moon Taxi quickly built a local following, which soon led to a record deal with 12th South Records.
Members Trevor Terndrup (vocals), Spencer Thomson (guitar), Tommy Putnam (bass), Wes Bailey (keyboards), and Tyler Ritter (drums) released their debut album, Melodica, in 2007. Their next step, logically, was to keep their audiences happy and promote their album the old-fashioned way: with many, many gigs. A concert album titled Live Ride followed in 2008, and their second proper album, Cabaret, appeared in 2012. Moon Taxi signed to BMG for distribution of their 2013 LP Mountains Beaches Cities. The album led to their songs being licensed for TV and commercials, their first appearances on U.S. late-night TV including Late Show with David Letterman, and performances at music festivals such as Bonnaroo, the Governor’s Ball, and Lollapalooza. Their fourth studio LP, Daybreaker, was released in October 2015. ~ Chris True & Marcy Donelson
