Walk the Moon was started back in 2006 with an idea from Nicolas Petricca, who was a student at Kenyon College!
The group wasn’t fully formed and didn’t release their first single until 2011 with “Anna Sun” which was a SMASH on alternative radio.
Lots of facepaint, festivals, touring with bands like Young the Giant, Weezer, and Panic at the Disco, they had a great three year run.
Their next album, Talking is Hard, had the single “Shut up and Dance” and that vaulted them to new heights. Played on pop radio, commercials, and opening for TAYLOR SWIFT!
The band was nominated at the American Music Awards for multiple awards, like new artist of the year, favorite artist in the alternative rock format, and favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group.
The next album was “What if Nothing” which included the single “One Foot” which the music video was shot at the famous “Joshua Tree National Park” and was actually timed up perfectly with the eclipse.
