The Moon and I (stylized as "The Moon & I") is a solo music project from Montreal-based indie artist Eric Nguyen. A classically trained pianist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist.
A builder at heart, he originally graduated with a degree in Architecture, but later worked as a designer and front-end developer for many years. His interest to be involved in every aspect of production has translated to his music work where he writes, produces, and releases everything by himself.
His sound has been described as dreamlike and melancholic, drawing comparisons to Thom Yorke and James Blake. His musical palette mixes experimental analog synths, drum loops, and piano.
The single "Moon I" was critically lauded by tastemaker blogs like Obscure Sound, Gig Goer, and Crack in the Road. Its success made him one of the most blogged about artists on HypeMachine on its release. His single "Day In, Day Out" was included in Cult MTL's top 100 Montreal songs of 2020 and featured on TV show "Good Trouble" streaming on Freeform and Hulu. He was also selected to be part of RBCxMusic and Launchpad's 2022 Entrepreneurial program for emerging artists, and the SOCAN/TD Incubator program.
