Marcus Moon composes in the style and instrumentation of classical music, but with an unmistakable influence of modern day life. Deeply inspired by the modern day singer/songwriters that he grew up listening to, there is always a story at the center of his work. Although his music is mostly without words, he paints the most vivid and heartfelt imagery using simple harmonies and very direct melodies, played on classical instruments, such as piano and cello.
Wistful Moon joins his previous two tracks charting on iTunes both in the United Kingdom and South Africa. In both countries Wistful Moon peaked at #1 on the iTunes Top 100 Easy Listening Charts. This track features Shang Yung Kitty Chang.

The album was composed, written, arranged and produce by Marcus Moon. It features Carson Becke on piano, Kitty Chan on cello and Ania Hejnar on the vocals. It was recorded at Venturing Hills Studio by Normand Glaude. Marcus is passionate about classical music and wants you to fall in love with it all over again.
