Keys to the Moon is a five piece folk jazz band based out of the Hudson Valley in New York State. They perform original music as well as jazz standards and are influenced by artists like Joni Mitchell, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Anais Mitchell, and Lake Street Dive.

From story songs, to philosophical ponderings, to imagery that reflects on the past, songwriters Casey Richards and Jeremiah Mahoney collaborate with their fellow jazzy Keys to the Moon members to create unique original tunes.

The group met and formed while studying jazz at SUNY New Paltz so it isn't surprising that improvisation is a persisting element in their music. In fact, one of the bands favorite moments on their debut album--Too Many Bats in the Pool--is the improvised electric bass and tenor sax "duel" in Failed Flying Machines.

They are currently booking gigs and writing songs in the Tri-State and New England area and have plans to record again soon.
