Described by NPR Music as joyous folk pop, Kuinka "laces modern folk and Americana with an electronic jolt, waltzing along the grooved edges of dream-pop, synth-pop, and Brooklyn’s mid-aughts guitar-rock revival" (Vanyaland). Their genre-defying music features several different lead singers, four-part harmony, and eclectic instrumentation including cello, banjo, synthesizers, ukulele and electronic percussion. For all of their sonic experimentation, the Seattle quartet's songs and live shows are linked by an infectious energy that remains present in everything they do.

"Kuinka crafts songs that are engaging and original with a proper amount of established canon and innovation. Stories are laced through the lyrics, there are celebrations as well as lamentations—there is synth and cello! It is such a wonderful thing to hear a sound you've adored for so long ameliorated like this, with nothing missing, only new possibilities added to the mix." -Paste Music & Daytrotter

"Seraphic vocals bookended by ukulele, cello, and heavy percussion will leave you feeling giddy and glad to be alive." -The Stranger

MOONLIGHT GRAHAM is a Folk/Pop band from North Orange County, CA. We got our start by playing a couple of songs we wrote for a friend's fundraising event, which led to another show and a few more songs, then another show and even more songs, etc. You know.

We have all always had a passion for playing music, and created this opportunity to play music with our close group of friends and share it with all who will listen. We have an intensely diverse music palette that we like to reveal through our music. We enjoy playing foot stomping, banjo/violin fueled romps as well as clean, polished pop standards (and even the occasional hip hop medley).

Our goal at our shows is to be heard, understood, and entertaining.

We pride ourselves on our ability to provide and exciting, frenetic live show while retaining professional musicianship, lyrics that can be understood, and melodies that can be remembered. Come out and enjoy an evening with us!
