Minor Moon's Sam Cantor writes resonant journeys into songs. The Chicago-based musician and sideman in Half Gringa have mined the pastoral and rollicking sounds of cosmic country for contemplative and thrilling songwriting. The core musicians who backed him on 2019's An Opening return: drummer Nathan Bojko, bassist Michael Downing, and keyboardist Colin Drozdoff, with the addition of lap steel guitarist Konstantine Stebliy. Here, the band is more locked in than ever, conjuring up engaging Neil Young grooves, eye-opening atmospherics, and a healthy amount of Midwestern twang.


His newest project, Tethers came out of a period of upheaval for Cantor, a time where he had to confront uncomfortable personal realities. This process led to Cantor constructing a psychedelic and knotty sci-fi world in his lyrics in order to write about what he was going through with more freedom and imagination. "Minor Moon songs have always had this arc of discovery and I've always used them as a way to dive into really personal, philosophical, or emotional problems," says Cantor. "It's about finding some truth looking inward."
