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, 15 years old, 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.”

  • Lesson Plan
    Some generous thoughts on songwriting, courtesy of Australian singer-songwriter Paul Kelly (find the complete Americana UK interview here): “A song can start from really odd beginnings. Most songwriting is random. I think of it being closer to fishing: you go out fishing for three or four or five days and nothing much happens, then someContinue reading “Lesson Plan”
  • The Pub Quiz
    For some reason, trivia games played with strangers in bars was a pastime that never really engaged me while working and living in the U.S. For the last four years, however, retired and living in Thailand, I’ve come to relish participation in a friendly “pub quiz” every month, typically, played in a bar or restaurant,Continue reading “The Pub Quiz”
  • 2022, Whatchagot?
    A kind of Mooonmemory Year-end reflections and new year predictions are flowing freely across the mediums we have now come to call “home.” A quarter century ago, the coming benefits and banes of the Internet were largely unknown and unimaginable to most humans, and today, the slightest ripple in its 24/7 “service” – like anyContinue reading “2022, Whatchagot?”
  • Lesson Plan: Music Charts
    To be honest, I get my weekly dose of mainstream pop music and gossip from a syndicated radio show, Asia Pop 40, hosted by an affable young DJ by the name of Joey Chou. Naturally, the chart is comprised of the most downloaded and streamed songs across the continent, including charts in the Philippines, Vietnam,Continue reading “Lesson Plan: Music Charts”
  • Ah, Ms. Safka
    Stopped at one of those mindless memes on Faceboook (we spell everything with three Os now) that promised to predict the course of someone’s life in the coming year, 2020. Turns out the secret is kept in the title of “the #1 song” on an individual’s 18th birthday. OK, let’s play. First of all, thisContinue reading “Ah, Ms. Safka”

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!!!!!
