The Big Moon are an indie rock band that has been active for almost 10 years now. Since being formed in 2014 by frontwoman Juliette Jackson (Jules), the band has been making music that is impactful to the LGBTQIA community, and we are huge fans! The other iconic members of the band are the lovely Soph Nathan, Celia Archer and Fern Ford.

We were so lucky to get to speak to Soph and Celia, get a peek into our interview below…

Soph Nathan on…

The songwriting

“The second chunk was the most collaborative we’ve ever been”

Choosing the album cover

“It was just so iconic… It’s an intangible thing, something about the composition, something about [Jules’s] face, the confidence”

Celia Archer on…

Making the album

“We had this time where we’d just go into the studio, the four of us and the baby”

What Jules shared about becoming a parent

“You’re trying to figure out how you’re going to integrate the person you were and the person you are now, and you’ve got this whole new dimension to your life”
