Here’s the story.

Early in 2020, as a pandemic encouraged people around the world to “stay home,” Josephmooon was created as a stage name and music project for the lyrics by Ronan Boren.

Ronan is autistic, and his imagination is vast, as revealed in the songs featured on the debut Josephmooon album, “So Far So Good,” released on October 1, 2021 on all digital download and streaming platforms.

“I’m a big fan of Josephmooon and all the great work that’s being done by Ronan Boren and Bill Paige.”

The lyrics are Ronan’s, edited and set to music by his music teacher, Bill Paige. The recordings were created at Rocky Head Studios in Hua Hin, Thailand, where Bill currently lives. Joining the Josephmooon team to make the music are the studio proprietors – Ronnie Nice, 17 years old, who has framed the songs with a fresh but familiar rock aesthetic, playing guitars, bass, drums, and producing. He has been taught well by his father, Ian Nice, a respected U.K. studio musician and solo artist who has recorded his own version of the Josephmooon song, “Every Right Now.”

  • soft power myth
    Why am I writing about “soft power?” Because for some reason, the Thai government, and subsequently the media and private sector spokespeople, all have started citing Thailand’s alleged “soft power” on the most inappropriate occasions. Most recently, it was a few Tweets from Russell Crowe, who happened to be in the Kingdom shooting a newContinue reading “soft power myth”
  • Lesson Plan
    A few topics on the table for this week’s JosephZooom session: The recent auction of a truly iconic guitar, Les Paul #1, built and “modded” by the man himself, Les Paul. Not the first electric guitar, but the first one that EVERYONE wanted to play. (I’m a Telecaster guy, finding the LP a bit tooContinue reading “Lesson Plan”
  • The First Cell Phone Call
    Wow. So, get this Mooonmemory from 38 years ago. On October 13, 1983, I called my Mom from the back seat of a black limousine cruising southbound on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. I was 29 years old, working for UPI, and covering a BIG business story – the inaugural day of commercial cellular phoneContinue reading “The First Cell Phone Call”
  • Jam? Or jelly?
    Without going into a lot of detail, our resort town of Hua Hin, as well as most of the rest of Thailand, has endured many months of pandemic lockdown restrictions. No gathering, no drinking alcoholic beverages, no billiards, no walking streets. It’s been a tad boring. For the best part of the last 18 months,Continue reading “Jam? Or jelly?”
  • The Cockney Rebel Connection
    “The Cockney Rebel Connection” is the name of a streaming radio program hosted by Stewart Griffin, an early and generous champion of Josephmooon, for which we are grateful. There is something very uplifting about hearing one’s original music played in the context of other songs and artists, as on a radio show, or playlist, andContinue reading “The Cockney Rebel Connection”

I’ve listened to Josephmooon over and over. Reusable Money makes me laugh.

We’ve been jamming out to the Josephmooon album this weekend! Great music to clean to!

Ronan’s work is incredible. I love it. Not only the finished product but the whole story. I’m going to share it as an example of what’s possible. Our platforms (in public education) are so limiting. I love how this illustrates the power in our children and what happens when we unleash their genius.

Brilliant! These songs have the power to enlighten people, broaden minds serendipitously. Great lyrics and accompanying music.

I’ve shared it. More people should hear it!

It’s really good! I am enjoying their music!!!!!
