James and Burian bring decades of symphonic, jazz, and funk experience to the music, adding a melodic layering to the story telling that is upbeat in one song and haunting in the next. Their music is food for the soul.
They met on Craigslist and joined a deep well of original songs - described by 303Magazine as “heartwarmingly honest and bittersweet” - with beautiful bass and horn instrumentation. The Moonlit Wild is bass player David James, who has played with notable Colorado genre bands Mass Hipsteria and The Flatirons Jazz Orchestra; Johanna Burian, classically trained French horn player and vocalist who freelances all over the Front Range, and is currently sitting in with the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra; and Christopher Bosch (“Christomo”), a soul-searching troubadour and collector of stories whose original music has been featured on national t.v. and radio.
