Watching The Moon
After years of performing with national touring acts like Sound of Reverse, Velorum, These Men are Liars, and Volcom Entertainment artists, Single Frame, on the Vans Warped Tour. Brown set out on his own, forming Watching the Moon in 2002. Performing first as a solo artist after a cross-country move to Austin, Texas, he soon set out to recruit old friends and talented players that would comprise the band's revolving cast of characters over the next few years. After a hiatus that saw Brown playing guitar and bass with Velorum and These Men are Liars, he wrote and recorded a debut e.p at the Sweatbox with Jason Morales in the fall of 2005. Headquartering in Austin, Watching the Moon performed a spree of regional dates across Texas, playing at venues like Emo's, Beerland, 710, Plus, Stubbs, Beauty Bar, and others. These appearances received press praise in the Austin Chronicle and zines like Whoopsy.
