Landing 2: the 10th Anniversary Concert
10 years ago, I recorded a little twelve song cycle called 'Landing'. Recorded live over three nights, it was my first real hit, and has remained a top seller and a favorite with the fans.
On May 25/26, 2012 I decided to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this CD with a pair of shows at Catherine North Studio and also go back to those original songs and record them again, along with a bunch of new, never-recorded tunes.
What we ended up achieving was surprising. The old songs came to life again in a brand new way, and all the arrangements had morphed over the years, revealing new layers of depth that time has overlaid on each song's meaning and delivery. The new songs really connected as well, since they are still fresh for me emotionally, and represent where I am at today.
I worked with Michael Chambers and Glen Marshall, my original producer, and we recorded 10 of the 12 original songs, plus 5 new ones. The result is a warm-sounding and breathtakingly pristine recording that I think you will be thrilled to own.Purchase Album »
I honestly think it is the best representation of what I do, finally captured on record.

Maybe Sunshine is a new studio mini-album with a new sound. Inspired by world travel and shot through with optimism, these songs have an energetic and muscular feel to them, with lots of layers to reward repeated listenings. New songs here include Sara (about a girl from El Salvador that became Jacob's sponsor child), End of the Road (a cup of courage for hope-starved), All things Old ( a first-take, live-in-studio acoustic gem), and Children of the World (a prayer for the world of the child; an anthem for change). Required listening for Jacob Moon fans, this record marks the beginning of a creative renaissance, and is compelling proof of the 'less is more' theory.Purchase Album »
A new live album for a new era. This one was recorded at a variety of venues around Ontario and across Canada. New songs here include 'The Great Beyond' (winner of the Great Lakes Song Contest), 'Not Gonna Lose', and 'I'm Sorry'. Ambitious covers such as 'Subdivisions' by Rush, 'Come Talk to Me' by Peter Gabriel and 'Esperanto' by Kurt Elling all reveal Moon's knack for re-interpretation and dynamic delivery. You won't believe what one man and his guitar can do.Purchase Album »
Winner of 2008's Covenant Award for best seasonal album, this one is a true gem. 10 carefully selected Christmas songs and one new composition make up this graceful and elegant CD, which has an appropriate sense of whimsy and wonder to it. Jacob even tries his hand at arranging the string section on this one, with breathtaking results on 'In the Bleak Midwinter' and 'I Saw Three Ships". The lasting feeling you get is warm, inviting and peaceful...like coming home.Purchase Album »
