Spoonbill began, as is often the case with birds of play, in the bush. Back then he was simply known as Jim Moynihan and he had no feathers to speak of. What he did have, however, was a natural ear for rhythm, sound and vibe.

What started as a love of the drums progressively shifted to percussion, and finally settled into a love of electronic production. In 2005 he decided to let his sonic persona take flight in the form of Spoonbill, with the debut album: Megafauna. Spoony’s iconic mix of improvised electronica, sound art aesthetics and heavily edited live instrumental recordings became an instant underground hit, the scene taking to this new Aussie direction in electronica like the collective duck to water.

Since then, Moynihan has continued to produce critically acclaimed releases such as Zoomorphic (2009), Airborne (2010), Astro Archipelago (2012), Boca Fiesta (2014), Tinkerbox (2015) and Squawkus (2016).

He’s played countless live shows across the world at clubs and festivals around the globe.
A restless sonic author that constantly defies genres, Spoonbill has carved a unique niche within contemporary electronic music, building a worldwide reputation for his idiosyncratic sound design and richly textured high productions.

After sending the dancefloor into a frenzy during his last performance in the Garden in 2016, he is back this year and bringing his Ensemble of live musicians along with him for what is shaping up to be a very special performance!
