Joanna-Deborah Bussinger, or better known as her stage name Red Moon, is an artist who cares a lot about trust. She values those closest to her and considers some of her most valued collaborators to be kindred spirits, who share an unspoken understanding of the foundations that make up Red Moon. She holds these treasured few close to her, as means of consistency in her ever-changing life. “It’s very much a trust thing. We are not creating algorithms; we are creating waves and real emotions which we transform into sounds and lyrics. Music to me is a reflection of emotion”.
Red Moon sprung onto the scene last year with her stirring, other-wordly, debut single ‘Dogma’. This first move had long been in the works. Every decision leading up to that moment had been carefully and quietly considered by this thoughtful new musician. From the production techniques used down to the troupe of dancers she met ahead of her first major video shoot, a repeated theme of a connected love and deeper understanding appears again and again. “How can we do something really meaningful and personal and create sounds together?” She ponders thoughtfully. “I don’t think everyone understands the translation of my music, and that’s totally fine”. The intricate creation process and finesse is somewhat of a statement of intent for this rising artist as she nurtures each of her releases with the same care and compassion.
Today, with her debut EP ‘Phase I:XL’ under her belt and two more singles out in recent months, Red Moon is truly thriving. Labeled as ‘Brilliant’ by the Sunday Times, “scintillating” by Clash Magazine and ‘Majestic’ by DIY magazine, Red Moon is certainly penning herself as an artist to watch.
