The Moonrisers are a Detroit-based instrumental duo consisting of drummer & percussionist Adam Schreiber, and folk musician Libby DeCamp. From their intuitive and longrunning chemistry flows a kind of pensive, earthy blues fleshed out in deep, open-tuned guitars and tonal, cinematic drums played with the touch of hands.
The Moonrisers’ debut single– produced by Dan Auerbach– “Tall Shadow” was recorded during the pair’s stay in Nashville for an appearance at the 2022 Easy Eye Sound Fish Fry during AmericanaFest. “They were down at the studio, playing a little bit,” Auerbach says, “and they played this instrumental. I just loved the way they played together, it knocked me out. I loved their dynamic together. It reminded me of the guitarists Sandy Bull and John Fahey.” The song was featured on Easy Eye Sound’s critically acclaimed compilation “Tell Everybody! (21st Century Juke Joint Blues From Easy Eye Sound)”.
