The Strawberry Moons


w/ Heather Nation Band (Single Release), Kathryn Cloward & The Royals (Live Music Video Shoot) and Jennifer Klein (CD Release)

The Strawberry Moons

The Strawberry Moons are Aimee Jacobs (vocals, keyboard), Will A Lerner (vocals, keyboard, guitar), Jason Areford (bass), Dustin Schemensky (drums), and newest member Hector Duenas (guitar, vocals). The idea was to form a band that showcased male/female vocals and strong melodies and harmonies, with influences including '60s baroque/vocal pop, the highly personal and intense folk rock of the 70s, as well as more aggressive and modern post-punk. Knowing her astounding vocal range and considerable skill as a musician, Will approached Aimee about collaborating. Her love of modern psychedelic rock and synth pop seamlessly combined with what Will was already hearing in his head, so writing together was, from the start, a very natural and organic thing. The duo spent considerable time bringing together the right musicians, starting with Will’s former bandmate John Falk on lead guitar and backing vocals. Jason joined up soon after, and wisely suggested they add his long-time friend and bandmate Dustin to complete the line-up in the spring of 2016.

Heather Nation Band

I've been singing since I was a little girl. We are all born with a purpose, and to have been blessed with knowing what my purpose is has been a gift, even if I haven't always known it. I have pursued a career as a performing singer/songwriter for 8 years on and off. During the off time, I knew I needed it back. Whether I knew it as a fact, or as a lingering feeling, music has always called to me.

In the springtime last year, I decided that I had the songs needed to make a collection worthy enough, and cohesive enough to create my first full length album. It meant so much to me to have cultivated over time a truly meant to be body of art. I knew in order to create an album of songs so important to me that I had to do it the right way, had to have all the right people, places, and products. From there we went on to create one of my most favorite bodies of work. I feel that my debut album SIRENS will be a perfect definition of what I was born into this planet to do.
