Who are Moose Knuckle?


Moose Knuckle's front line, Karla Spooner, has spent a lifetime around music in one way or another. Whether dancing to it, ice skating to it or previously singing in an 80s cover band, music is a clear passion of hers.

She brings an exciting level of life and enthusiasm to the band and makes watching and listening easy for paying audiences across the Midlands.

Its safe to say that Karla puts the Knuckle in to Moose Knuckle.

Matt is the bands rhythm guitarist.

With his unmistakable hair he's easily identified on stage. Matt's music is heavily influenced by his somewhat eclectic tastes - from folk rock to cheesy pop and anything (and everything) in between. This mix lends itself perfectly to the Moose Knuckle ethos and adds a certain versatility to the band.

When he's not rocking the stage he can be found playing golf, fishing, adding to his photography portfolio and riding bmx - see we told you he had eclectic tastes!

P Looking busy      

A fair amount of experience as a writer and performer in his youth provided a sound platform for Grant (AKA 'P') to hone his guitar skills in preparation for the pinnacle of his career (lol) in Moose Knuckle. Albeit 25 years later.

Consequently, P has now stepped up to become the argumentative, moody and confrontational lead guitarist in the band.

When you come to see them, he'll be the old guy at the back of the stage, smiling occasionally and making the rest of the band look good.

Liam (4am) is Moose Knuckle's bass player and is occasionally allowed to grace the business end of a microphone. If he's been a very good boy. Which he mostly is.

His musical taste ranges from jazz to heavy metal and he loves a good pop song to twiddle with.

He is classically trained in both double bass and oboe neither of which are of any use in Moose Knuckle, but hey, he's only playing bass!


Talmon is a multi-instrumentalist, playing over ten instruments… he’s also really humble! (not)

He’s an odd sort of fellow, enjoying diverse hobbies from jousting and blacksmithing to cycling and board games.

Talmon trained in musical theatre and was once asked to play Joseph in Lloyd-Webber’s Joseph and the amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in Missouri America in 2007. Since then, he has held multiple jobs from project management to farmer!

He is very excited to knuckle under as the newest knuckle!
