Lunar Rising was created in the autumn of 2007 when guitarist Jay Harris got in touch with singer Dominique Allan to write atmospheric and haunting songs that captured the more comtemplative side of life. Since then the band has grown in both numbers and sound, expanding on their acoustic origins to incorporate drums, bass, piano, violin and backing vocals. Throughout the years Lunar Rising have continued to combine the finer elements of folk and rock to produce a unique musical style.
