In Spring 2008, Moongazer signed to Rockbox Productions and in Autumn 2008, released their first CD “Hares and Graces” to very favourable reviews. The band is at it’s best in the live arena however and any chance to catch them on a stage near you should not be missed.

"Every so often a new band picks up the folk-rock baton and runs with it for a few musical miles. Such a band are the excellent Moongazer. From trad-influenced swashbucklers like Pirates to the gentle lyricism of Smoke Rings, they ooze class and are well worth a listen."
