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.|
They will be releasing their first full-length album "Blue Transmissions: vol. 1 & 2" (following the band's release of two EPs last year: "Blue Transmissions: vol. 1" and "A Million Suns: vol. 1") this May, and will be celebrating with a live concert event at First Christian Church in Eugene, OR on May 6th. This event is a benefit for Occupy Medical and the First Christian Church's "Helping Hands" assistance outreach. These two organizations work to meet the basic needs of Eugene's unhoused populations, including medical care (Occupy Medical) and food, shelter, and clothing needs (Helping Hands).
The concert start-time is 7 pm, with doors opening at 6:30 pm. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, though advance purchase is highly recommended. halie and the moon's new album and previously released EPs will be for sale, and there will be light refreshments available.
halie and the moon was formed over the last few years as the relationships of its members grew organically out of the Eugene music scene. Vocalist/songwriter/pianist Halie Loren and songwriter/guitarist Daniel Gallo began collaborating three years ago (as long-time admirers of each other's musical work). They quickly linked up with drummer Beau Eastlund and bassist Bobby Stevens, both having performed with Daniel in local bands Concrete Loveseat and My Father's Ghost, respectively. In the midst of the foursome beginning work on their first recording project last fall, they crossed paths with cellist/vocalist Katherine Dudney last fall, who happened to be the perfect fifth element for The Moon. The group is excited to release their first EP this November, with more recordings already in the works for the near future.
