About the Band
Based out of Austin, TX, Mike and the Moonpies have been described as the modern face of outlaw country music. The band is comprised of frontman Mike Harmeier, guitarist Catlin Rutherford, keyboardist John Carbone, steel guitarist Zach Moulton, bassist Preston Rhone, and drummer Kyle Ponder. Mike and the Moonpies are self-managed, produce their own albums, and they write their own songs. This level of control over their career is one of the main reasons they have been able to rejuvenate honky tonk and traditional country music.
About the Music
Through a wealth of country music knowledge and many connections to some of the greatest names in country music, Mike’s dad had a profound influence on Mike’s career. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Mike said, “I was as much influenced by him as I was by his social network and their lifestyle when I was growing up. I feel like I’m constantly chasing that feeling that I had when I was hanging out with him and his friends.” The chase for that elusive era has produced music that is eclectic in nature and has appeal to audiences from drastically different backgrounds.
