With odds stacked against their continued existence as a band since day one, Omaha, Nebraska's Landing on the Moon has risen above the circumstances and maintains an ever-strong pulse. This quintet could easily be perceived as unlikely suspects to thrive in our current era of modern Rock and Roll. Nevertheless, the band carries itself with a bold musical swagger, a drive, and a confidence of the underdog that could convince you of their purpose on any given day. The bond is tight with this outfit, consisting of a set of siblings, a pair of spouses, and two friends that are like brothers to the rest. The writing and composition is shared. The sound is thick and detailed, from the soaring guitars, to the prominence the rhythm section, to the mesmerizing piano work, to the cap of shared harmonious dual male/female team-effort vocalsâ¦.always delivering a common heartfelt message from song to song. With a completely working-class and honest approach, Landing on the Moon combines decades of musical experience and education between them with friendship. The resulting chemistry of which produces love and loss, humor and contempt, melancholy and triumph, despair and hope, joy and fear. But above all things they possess are two standout defining characteristics that are unwavering: a soul and a passion in their songs, missing from much of today's music, backed with an immortal desire to share it.
LOTM has shared the stage over the years with such National/International acts as Portugal. the Man, Cursive, Vampire Weekend, Say Anything, and the fray.
