“The shock never really wears off”, says Michael Mooney, unshaven and bundled against a winter’s first –20 degree morning
It’s the singer-songwriter’s third winter in Montreal, and slowly but surely, this native of Jamberoo, Australia, (population 935), is adjusting. In 2008, Mooney met his wife to be, Anne, and decided to follow her to the beautiful city of Montreal, leaving behind a promising music career in Sydney.
Once there, he supported himself as an in house vocalist for one of Montreal’s premier recording studios, and started to tap into the budding music scene. He connected with like-minded collaborators to form the collective that has become the Mooney band.
