Moonwood began in 2007 as a solo project of Toronto based Jakob Rehlinger, owner of Arachnidiscs Recordings, a boutique music label specializing in experimental music. He released numerous private press albums CD-Rs, exploring freak-folk, desert rock and NEU! influenced Krautrock before Jacqueline Noire (synthesizer, vocals) joined in 2009 with Matthew Fava (bass) and Luca Capone (drums) climbing aboard in 2014.
