“Complex is first word that comes to mind when considering Hollywood based Australian artist and producer gilli moon: songs of being a child by an all-woman chanteuse, a singular warrior over the industry who remains quietly sensitive, and a dynamic performance artist who paints as brilliantly as she sings.” - JeffBuckley.com
gilli moon is a Hollywood based Australian singer-songwriter, who delivers conscious music, art and a brave sense of self-expression in her energetic, sensual and expressive performances and recordings. gilli (pronounced as with a "J") is an illustrious poly-media artist, with multifaceted albums and dynamic live shows that have touched music lovers worldwide garnering high praise from the most jaded of critics. gilli moon is the quintessential renaissance woman, with a ceaseless contribution to the creative and artist community at large. She creates music that is fresh, rebellious, passionate and unique. Itunes has been unable to classify her. She stands alone.
Her restless creativity and rebellious nature continually urge the artist to push the envelope when writing a song, recording in the studio, on stage, painting a canvas, or with whatever she touches.
Born in Milan Italy, and raised on solar power in the wilderness "bush" just north of Sydney, Australia, gilli moon lives in Hollywood, California, but always calls Australia home. For the past 10 years, Gilli has been one of Australia's most influential and iconic figures based in the USA, forging an independent path before anyone knew what "indie" was. As an Artist and Songwriter, she has produced and released 5 studio music albums of her original music to critical acclaim, written hundreds of songs, won songwriting and artist awards, actively places her songs in films and TV shows, and has performed around the world many times over.
Her albums include "Girl In The Moon" (1998), "temperamental angel" (2001), "Woman" (2003), "extraOrdinary life" (2005) and "Skillz" (2009), the latter dedicated to empowering at-risk youth (released with L.A's celebrity spoken word/hip hop artist J.Walker).
As a Music Producer with her own record company, Warrior Girl Music, she has recorded and released over 20 Artists' albums as well as music compilations. She has a talent for taking a song from an idea to a fully produced, radio-ready song, and loves to produce full concept albums, not only for herself but for any artist of any music genre. A perpetual philanthropist, Gilli has created opportunities and avenues for artists worldwide through her non-profit songwriters organization, Songsalive!, plus has written two books about artistic entrepreneurial excellence, called "I AM A Professional Artist" and "Just Get Out There".
Her shows are highly energetic and powerful and she combines music, art, dance and little theatre into her show. gilli is truly a multi-dimensional experience. Her performance is full of action, her voice a tapestry of emotion and sensuality and her music an expression of pure raw emotion.
Moon describes her live show as an "emotional ride". "It's full of energy," Moon explained. "It's a combination of full-on rock: energy, action, and rather heavy. Then it sort-of cuts to a complete silence: quiet ballads where I'm on the piano. Then it peaks again. It's very emotional, but with a quirky and ironic sense of humour at the same time."
Currently recording her 6th album, "The Stillness", (due out early 2010), Gilli's ultimate passions rest in writing songs, recording in the studio, and performing on the stage. It is through her catalog of hundreds of songs, music productions, and unique, evocative and energetic live stage performances, that she sees her truest talents and inspirations, keeps a fire in her belly to purge her life stories and quest for truth.
