The new musical project, Moment of Eclipse—a collaboration of high school musicians from PEI—is the brainchild of the members’ love for grunge, alternative, punk, and new wave movements. The Charlottetown alternative rock band features frontman and lead songwriter, Nicolas Dickieson, Charlotte Lloyd on bass, Jesse MacCormac on drums, and Casey Mann on lead guitar.
Following a Radio ECMA stage showcase, a host of high energy and acoustic shows in 2019, and mentorship with Music PEI Award-winner Andrew Waite, the band began grant writing and became the youngest group ever to be chosen by the Music PEI Emerging Music Program.
After a period of intense practice and pre-production, the members of Moment of Eclipse walked into Jon Matthews’ Sound Mill Studio for the first time on March 14, but it wasn’t until the restrictions loosened in June that vocalist Nicolas Dickieson was finally able to finish recording vocals.
The band released their debut single “Obsessive, Compulsive” in late October. Personality, passion and a touch of anger are found in the lyrics of this song—a rock-heavy throwback sound to the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
Listent to “Obsessive, Compulsive” on digital platforms including Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music and Amazon.
