INTERVIEW: Gilli Moon

1. Tell us who you are and where you’re from.: I’m from Sydney, Australia and am currently living in Hollywood, California. I’m a singer-songwriter, who plays piano and also have a full band. I’ve just released my 6th album, “the stillness”

2. Describe your music.: I don’t think I can put it in a box really, but I’d say it falls in the contemporary pop alternative, with some soul and rock infused.

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.: I’m a solo artist, by definition, but I’ve always had a band around me. I’ve had different players over the years from Sydney to Europe to America. In Los Angeles, we all met in the club circuit and we are really good friends also.

4. What did you do before you were in a band?: I was always an artist, performer, ever since I was a little girl. I always sang, danced, acted, played and wrote music as far as I can remember.

5. List the first CDs/records each of you bought.: I think it was an Olivia Newton John cassette tape. Physical.

6. What’s the band up to over the next few months?: We are promoting the album and touring across the U.S. i hope to come to Europe also. Definitely going to Australia around Christmas time.

7. Best item of fan mail you’ve ever received?: A pink pig – soft toy, thrown up on stage to me.

8. What music do you have on repeat in the tourbus? : Maxwell and Sade. Love the groove.

9. What gear do you use?: Keyboards – Yamaha. I’m also a Minarik Guitar endorsed artist.

10. What’s your best on-tour story?: Going on tour with Eric Idle from Monty Python, we were on the road for 3 months. I did a tour diary and so did he. It was a battle of the tour diaries! He’s also born on my birthday March 29. If you want to read my diary go to http://gillidiary.blogspot.com and click on Tours on the right. His is published in any book store. It’s called “The Greedy Bastard Tour”. Yep, i’m in it!

11. What do you demand on your rider?: Not much. I’m easy to please. Water. Thanks!
