Bio

Theres a reason why Brisbane based artist Moon Saloon (aka Charlie Grainger) loves making sad indie-pop tunes; for her it's about celebrating the tension of seeing "both sides of the coin".
Blending a combination of delay-drenched guitars, indie-pop synths and layered textures Moon Saloon creates a dreamy soundscape that quickly drops you into a space of reflection. It’s a melodic journey where moments in tension are given space to breath.


With an impressive entry to the Australian music scene in late 2019 with her single, Mothers Words and the release of her debut EP MARK ST in 2020, Moon Saloon hit the stage supporting leading Australian artists like Stella Donnelly, Charlie Collins and Elliot.

2021 is set to be an immense development year for Moon Saloon with the release of two new singles over the coming months, followed by her forthcoming sophomore EP. Moon Saloon has only scratched the surface of her journey.

Moon Saloon capture fragility so beautifully, I could listen to this endlessly - with friends or with my shadow.
