Moonbloom was formed by and is solo musician/guitarist and visual artist, Wayne J. Tirone. His music has varying, simultaneous moods and emotions like the northern seasons yet, tends towards a ’blue-violet’ melancholy. Inspiration comes from a deep reverence for animals and, visceral ritual of nature's forest's rhythms. The dynamic between music and visual art influencing each other is the dual process of artistic disciplines he works in. Tirone’s published conceptual paintings and ink drawings illustrate feature articles for the Hartford Courant and other publications.
