Jacob Moon's new album Fascination featuring a cover of Rush's Limelight now available
Canadian folk musician Jacob Moon's new CD Fascination includes covers of Rush's Limelight and Subdivisions and is now available for purchase at Kapipal. The album also includes covers of songs from Yes, Marillion, Radiohead and Peter Gabriel, along with two new original songs. Jacob recorded Limelight with the Alex Lifeson-produced David Barrett Trio and you can hear the entire track on Soundcloud here. Jacob will be embarking on a short European tour in support of Marillion over the next couple of weeks, but then will return to North America for a CD Release show at the Oakville Centre in Oakville, ON on November 22nd. Every ticket to the show will get you a free CD. For all the latest on the album and tour, visit Jacob Moon's website or follow him on Facebook. You can check out some in-studio footage where Jacob and David talk about The Trio's work with Alex Lifeson, the Limelight recording and more at this link. Jacob Moon garnered the attention of Rush and their fans when he posted a YouTube video of himself performing an impressive rooftop solo rendition of Rush's Subdivisions a few years ago. The video quickly went viral, and Rush later asked Jacob to perform the song at their Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony back in March of 2010. A slightly different arrangement of this cover of Subdivisions is also included on Fascination and can be heard online here. Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.
