A few years before Moonpilot existence, Sean Christopher (vocals, guitars) studied drums on the royal conservatory in the Netherlands. It was that period that he got inspired to actually write music, not only playing it. Sean, who toured with Daniel Johnston as a drummer decided not to continue his study as a drummer and put the main focus on composing music. He asked a childhood friend, Dennis de Ronde(keyboards), to accompany him on playing songs he’d written. It was soon after their jams when they decided to bring in more musicians to form a band.
