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.”

Josephmooon: So Far So Good

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.”

From the Blog

  • Year-End Report
    Wow, that was a long four months. I did not intend to take that much time away from this blog, but there you go. Did you miss us? Nah, did not think so. Anyway, the fall was for travel back to the USA — spent some quality time in Chicago and Austin, where Josephmooon enjoyed … Read more
  • TP (ain’t talking ’bout Tom Petty)
    In the early days of Josephmooon, Ronan suggested MANY ideas for “branded products,” from the fantastic (jetliners), to the ridiculous (cheese-flavoured toothpaste), to the practical (jackets, shoes, etc.). Of course, Josephmooon toilet paper was on the list. No way, I said. Just reminded of that phase on National Toilet Paper Day [26 August]. So much … Read more
  • Celebrate International Strange Music Day [24 August]
    Truly, there is a “day” for everything, and Josephmooon certainly appreciates the existence of International Strange Music Day [24 August], which encourages us to “switch up our regular playlist for something eccentric and unusual.” My relationship to strange music likely began with traditional artists, specifically the Beatles and Frank Zappa. Fascinated with John Lennon’s relationship … Read more
  • RIP, Jimy Sohns, Shadows of Knight
    As a young writer for United Press International [UPI], working in HX (the city code for Chicago), there were several opportunities to earn extra income beyond one’s regular hourly shift pay. One was writing reviews for the service’s weekly book section. I once reviewed Kurt Vonnegut’s book, Palm Sunday, and sent a clip off to … Read more
  • Happy Uncommon Instruments Awareness Day!
    Check it out – every 31 July is a special day designed to encourage people to explore uncommon instruments. There are so many! When I looked at the list, I noticed that a few already have a favored home in the Josephmooon / Austin, TX DIV., musical equipment room, specifically the hurdy gurdy and shofar. … Read more

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!!!!!
