The 23-year-old Belgian Iskander Moens already has an extensive musical journey despite his young age. 

As a young kid, Iskander had the opportunity to tour across Europe with the choral ensemble Collegium Vocale (under the direction of Philippe Herreweghe). He composed polyphonic pieces for the men’s choir Dionysos Now! and was also active in various projects outside the classical world, including the tuxedorock trio HYPER! and the fusion band Shikata Ga Nai

As a multi-instrumentalist and producer, Iskander pursued classical piano training at MUDA and completed his master’s in music production at KASK & Conservatory of Ghent last summer. Over the past two years, he has been actively involved as a producer, session musician, and songwriter for artists such as Mooneye, The Starlings, Camille, Lea Rue, Ibe and Yves Paquet

Simultaneously, Iskander has been quietly making strides as a solo artist under his alter-ego “Iskander Moon.”

 

Drawn to the allure of being absorbed by a large anonymous city, he spent extended periods in places like New York, Berlin, Boston, and Florence. During his time there, Iskander immersed himself fully in the local music scene, performing in numerous singer-songwriter cafes where he impressed the audience with his warm tenor voice. During those stays, he effortlessly composed a collection of sparkling folk-pop songs.

Iskander: “People who have seen me perform here in Belgium probably associate me musically with more complex projects, but I’ve always seen myself primarily as a songwriter and storyteller. I enjoy playing a piece like Prelude in C Minor by Bach, but at the same time, I can wholeheartedly appreciate a good Taylor Swift song.”

As Iskander Moon, he aims to deliver simple, heartfelt pop songs with compelling lyrics, sung from behind his ivory keys. Think Bon Iver, James Bay, and Tom Odell.

Debut single 'Saturday Silence' (released on [PIAS]) has received airplay on Belgium's major radio stations such as Studio Brussel, MNM, Radio 2, and has already gathered over 100,000 plays on Spotify. The song will be featured on Moon's debut EP, scheduled for release in March 2024.
