Born in Brooklyn, Moon Boots’ musical obsession started not long after he could walk. His early love of piano lead to a passion for keyboards and synthesizers.
Teenage nights lost in the work of Daft Punk, A Tribe Called Quest and Herbie Hancock followed. Then came a stint at Princeton University, where he shelved an Engineering degree to dive into the musical abyss.
Knowing what he had to do, he moved to the house music epicenter of Chicago, where he tirelessly passed out demos to local DJs and scoured the web for people with whom he could share and expand on his sound.
The stars aligned when he had a chance encounter with Perseus, founder of new label, French Express. A fellow junkie and fan of French House and R&B-infused dance music, Perseus became a friend and mentor, the Splinter to Boots' Donatello. The label eventually disbanded but Boots has stayed true to his mission of making dance tracks that can’t be confined to one style. Pete blends the music he loves - jazz, house, funk and soul - into songs that last longer than their runtime. Songs not just for DJs, but for everyone.
After moving back to Brooklyn, Dougherty was introduced to the Anjunadeep team. His relationship with the label flourished, leading to his debut album "First Landing." It’s an album where cavernous club music meshes with classical melodies, warm harmonies, and bright melodic soundscapes riddled with soul.
2019 sees the release of Boots' sophomore album "Bimini Road," which drops Sept 6th.
