Sometime in 2005 Markus Kankkonen, Tony Nyström, Mathias Björk, Tom Simell and Niklas Harju, all from the west-coast of Finland, gathered to start jamming and having some fun. The big idea was Pink Floyd, one of the many interests that all of them had in common. Suddenly a band was formed, soon to be called Porcelain. Later on Pia Susanne Kurtén dropped in to help out. And then, at some point, the band of prog-heads decided that it would be a good idea to find a singer for the band, and the choise was obvious; the mostly talented Charlotta Kerbs.
In the summer 2009 Porcelain released their debut album "…as it were. Here and there", an album that got very good reviews from all around the world. During 2010 the band entered a new era, signing for the French label Musea Parallele, which will lead to a world wide release on the album soon. That also meant deciding a new name for the group, and the result was Porcelain Moon.
Porcelain Moon is a music group from the Kokkola – Pietarsaari area on the Finnish west-coast, whose music can be described as good old 70´s progressive rock. The music has been reviewed as a mixture of Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis and Camel, with a touch of both jazz and Nordic folk music. But as their inspirational sources they also have many modern bands such as: The Mars Volta, Anekdoten and Porcupine Tree.
The group consists of 7 musicians and the sound is mainly built up on guitar, bass, drums, vocals, organs and synthesizers. All in a real 70's spirit. But even other instruments such as violin, saxophone and flute live as a part of the whole concept. Porcelain Moon has played on several minor festivals and parties around the Finnish west coast, but also abroad; in Lithuania at the "Baltic Progfest 2010" and on Swedens second official Space rock festival "2008: A Space Rock Odyssey", and got very positive feedback. Porcelain Moon´s concerts offer an energetic performance that also contains jam sessions, which make every gig a whole new experience.
