Check Out the Music of Wenatchee Musician: Wild Moon
Luca Scanlon, also known by his stage name Wild Moon, is a talented young musician living right here in the Wenatchee Valley.
This is Luca's bio, from his family:
Luca Scanlon started playing the drums and banging on the piano keys at a very young age. His family has raised him on music and, his Dad specifically, has passed him down the musical gift. Luca got his first drum set when he was two and has kept his rhythm ever since.
Luca has a passion for creating music that has captured the attention of both his family and close circle of friends. Norah, a KW3 listener, is one of those good friends.
Recently Norah texted a request for us to play WIld Moon on the radio. I’m thankful that Norah included her last name on the text request. My family and Norah’s family have known each other for years. I happened to see Norah and her dad at the recent Rails and Ales ski and snowboard event in downtown Wenatchee. I asked Norah's dad, Mike, if he could pass along my number to Luca’s family. I soon was emailed a link to listen to Luca’s music. Hearing Wild Moon’s music, I immediately drew a comparison to the artist Lorde.
I was surprised that Luca, the person behind Wild Moon, is only 12 years old. He currently attends Pinnacles Prep, a charter school dedicated to supporting their scholars’ individual aspirations. Although he spends most of his time in his room with his cat, Luca loves to ride his bike around the neighborhood, go plane spotting at Pangborn Memorial Airport, and explore down by the river with his two siblings. Alongside all his other hobbies and through all the stages of his life, music is the one thing that has, and always will, stick with him. Luca lives through his music and can’t wait to put his name out there.
I'd like to thank Ted Scanlon for helping us learn more about his son's talent. Big Thanks to Maya and Luca for helping us get to know the artist behind the music, Thanks also to Mike & Norah Endsley for helping us discover Luca's music!
