Songs that lend a voice to the equestrian world in a way only music can.
Sean Moeller has a strange fascination with horses. He was raised on a farm right off Interstate 80 in Illinois, and when he used to write music, he found that he was always writing about horses. Moeller thought the odd obsession was a problem, but what it actually proved to be was inspiration.
If you’re thinking to yourself, “I have a strange fascination with horses too, but the name Sean Moeller doesn’t ring a bell,” that’s probably because you’re thinking about individuals in the wrong industry. Moeller didn’t grow up to be a Grand Prix jumper or a rodeo rider. No, if you want to find Moeller, you better start looking around the forefront of online music.
Moeller is the mastermind behind Daytrotter, an online music destination that is, as advertised, “the best place to find your new favorite band.” For a small monthly or yearly fee you can hear the one-of-a-kind recordings of some of the biggest names in indie music as well as some of the best bands you’ve yet to hear, mostly all made in a studio known as The Horseshack.
