The Moon and You is an Americana duo based in Asheville, NC. Cellist Melissa Hyman and guitarist/banjo player Ryan Furstenberg sing in “voices that sound like they were made for one another” (Bill DeYoung, Connect Savannah). Each is an accomplished songwriter with a distinctive and memorable style. Though they bring to the table the seamless vocal blend and heartfelt lyrics characteristic of folk music, this ain’t your basic folk duo; audible influences include jazz standards, classic country, indie rock and classical music. All of these sources combine to find sweet harmony in The Moon and You’s warm and unconventional arrangements. Perfect for fans of Shovels & Rope, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, and Norman & Nancy Blake.
