About Moemaw Naedon:
Moemaw Naedon is a lyricist and producer best known for his work with Fortified PhonetX, Galactic Brethren, Circular Signals, his latest release,Travel Through, and his energetic live stage performance. His production is sample heavy and dusty and his rhymes are poetic and abstract, often delivered with a calm yet intense cadence which he is always honing and improving. His first official recorded project was "The Plastic Eaters" with Fortified PhonetX. He then made the sci fi based "Galactic Brethren" project with his long time friend, Brother Seamus, where he dove into an intense linear collaboration between the two, as well as recording, mixing and mastering. His next release was the Circular Signals project with The Latebloomer. This work displayed another side, focused more on introspection than combative rhymes, he also mixed and mastered this whole album in his home studio. His latest project "Travel Through" is a collaboration between him and Pittsburgh producer Billy Hoyle. On this project, he is the only one rapping which allows the audience to explore his mind state and brings to the forefront some of his own personal issues while keeping the journey very metaphysical for the listener. He continues to work with various producers from all over, performs regularly, and can still be found in freestyle cyphers and even the occasional rap battle. Usually when one project is finished, two more are on their way, so be on the lookout for a growing music catalogue from Moemaw Naedon while he explores different mystic realms, rhyme styles and techniques while aiming to improve his craft with each release.
