Acoustic pop/folk indie band halie and the moon released their first full-length album, "Blue Transmissions: Vol 1 & 2", in summer, 2017 with a very successful Fundraising concert for Occupy Medical, an organization helping those with medical needs who do not have health insurance. The good karma is now coming back to them back as they are celebrating the signing of halie and the moon with JVC Kenwood Victor Entertainment (http://www.jvcmusic.co.jp/) for distribution of the album in Asia. The album will be released in Japan on October 25, 2017 in both physical and digital formats.
The original music of halie and the moon traverses themes of dreamscapes, love, mystery, and celestial images. Each song is brought to life by lush vocals wrapped in the warmth of cello and acoustic guitar, lifted by lyrical and powerful rhythms, building texture-rich layers and stripping them away to create worlds within worlds of sound.
halie and the moon found its way into the world when internationally-acclaimed vocalist/songwriter/pianist Halie Loren and songwriter/guitarist Daniel Gallo found a musical chemistry with each other that propelled them to chase big musical dreams. "Daniel's songs spoke to my soul in such a deep way, in the way that exquisite poetry does, that I knew this music would be my medicine – and probably someone else's as well", says Loren. They, along with drummer Beau Eastlund and bassist/vocalist Bobby Stevens, began their adventure as a by immediately entering the studio to bring their songs to life. They crossed paths with cellist/vocalist Katherine Dudney, the perfect fifth element for The Moon, in 2014.
The five-some has been working and creating tirelessly ever since on their tight and dynamic arrangements of dozens of original songs, four of which are featured on the luminous "Blue Transmissions: vol. 1" EP (released in December 2015) and four more with the 2016 release of sun-drenched "A Million Suns: vol. 1" EP. Their new full-length album, "Blue Transmissions: Vol 1 & 2" is already seeing radio play across multiple media. The band regularly sells out the limited live shows they have produced in the Northwest Region of the US, and they look to expand their touring to include other parts of the US and Japan and Korea in 2018.
What they are saying about halie and the moon:
•"halie and the moon's first full-length album, "Blue Transmissions: vol. 1 & 2", immerses itself in a world of ephemeral beauty, love, and sweet melancholy in equal measures...Otherworldly yet intimate, their aesthetic is a kind of catch-and-release, grounded in pop smarts and yet forever urging itself into the firmament. The result is a symphonic, atmospheric sound that is no less mysterious and thrilling for being entirely accessible." (Rick Levin, Eugene Weekly - 5/4/17).
•"The band melds so well that you would think they've been together for years. This is evident from how well they play very different types of song - jazz/pop, jazz/funk, and folk/pop." (J. T. Frazier / Joe's Geek Fest, Music Review, pop)
