Spoonbill is a restless sonic author constantly defying genres and experimenting with the potential of the vast sonic canvas. He has carved a unique niche within contemporary electronic music, building a worldwide reputation for his idiosyncratic sound design and richly textured high production values.

In 2005, Moynihan (Spoonbill) began his career as an electronic music producer under the artist name Spoonbill. His debut album Megafauna was released that year through Moynihan's record label Omelette Records. Spoonbill's unique mix of improvised electronica, sound art aesthetics and heavily edited live instrumental recordings became an instant underground hit, immediately establishing him in the Australian electronic music scene. It was followed in 2007 with his second full length album Nestegg with the support of the Australia Council for the Arts. The album was critically acclaimed and was nominated Album Of The Week on ABC Radio National, PBS Radio Melbourne and Triple R.

 Moynihan has continued to produce Spoonbill releases, including Zoomorphic (2009), Airborne (2010), Astro Archipelago (2012), Boca Fiesta (2014), Tinkerbox (2015), Squawkus (2016), Crosshatch (2018) & Canopy (2019). In both 2013 & 2015, Spoonbill was ranked 3rd on the influential Addictech yearly charts for Tinkerbox and Boca Fiesta, and received 4th place in 2009 for Airborne. Spoonbill is widely respected as a pioneering producer that has influenced the sound of groove based electronica, especially in the Bass and Glitch Hop genres. In 2015 Spoonbill won Album of the Yearfor Tinkerbox and came runner up for Producer of the Yearat the UK Glitch Hop Awards.
