An adventurous journey of autobiographical songs and stories, and intimate music conversations about gilli moon's inner truths, emotions and passions, anecdotes about falling in love, and out of it, about living in Hollywood, and about freedom, humour, simplicity and a life long journey of discovery.
extraOrdinary Life celebrates 13 brand new self-penned songs, a spoken word track and an Italian song. An ENHANCED CD, it features a 10 min "making of" video, and a 20 photo slide show embracing her album, photography which has come to visual life by Hollywood's celebrity photographer Jim Steinfeldt (Tina Turner, Madonna, Miles Davis, Willie Nelson).
Recorded in 3 different locations including Los Angeles, Sydney, and New Orleans, the new ENHANCED CD sees gilli moon, artist and producer, collaborating with her favorite collection of alchemists and fellow mavericks, including programmer and engineer Matt Thorne (The Eels, Trapt, Kate Ceberano, Plastilina Mosh); engineer Evan Beigel (Badi Assad), 2 bass players Jeff Dean & Ken Moore; guitarists Gordie Germaine & Donovan Raitt, Aussie drummer Tim Davies, Jennifer J (Eric Idle) on backing vocals & a string of percussionists, horn players and mavericks from around the world.
extraOrdinary Life offers standout tracks: the up-tempo "Undone" (with matching music video now playing), the evocative and story compelling " Hollywood", the sensuous "The Kiss" (co-produced with Evan Beigel), "Circus of Life" (already used as theme song for Australia's hit indie musical in Wollombi NSW), and the bittersweet love song "Spaceship". gilli moon's productions have always taken much-needed production risks, and push the envelope sonically, yet still mainstream accessible to the hearts and ears of generations. All songs from the album are available for download as mp3s for your ipods, ringtones for your cell or purchase the CD to embrace the beautiful artwork, 'making of' video, slide show, and good ol' fashion music stereo sound that really doesn't compare in an mp3! Sponsors include Oasis CD Manufacturing and Parlour Music Company MN.
