Warrior Girl Music eNews - a little bit of gilli moon monthly in your inbox
G'day peaceful warriors,
gilli moon here. I'm on an ammmaaaazing journey right now. I use the word 'amazing' because unfortunately I've been sucked in to watching The Bachelorette, and that's her favorite word. We counted 23 uses of that word in last night's final episode. And now that that's over, I can get onto the real stuff like... my new record. Yippee!
What's in this issue? Music videos uploaded and in the creation; great Gig this Thursday in Hollywood; touring to Tennessee in a few weeks; interviews past, present and future; what a blast. I can barely keep up with myself. I'm obsessed, totally egocentric right now, and loving it. I hope you get a chance to hear "the stillness". It's every piece of my heart in this one, and so far people have been liking it too. Phew!
Take the ride with me and read on with my monthly newsletter. Get your piece of the music pie half way down the page.(Get off the email train at the end of this newsletter)
Loving life. Loving you.
Quote of the moment:
“I’m writing a lot about self-empowerment and a certain sense of self-awareness, and a feeling of knowing who I am, and that I don’t need anyone else to approve of me.”
- gilli moon, on the Club Indie radio show (interview last week)

Music videos r us
Days In November - music video
We just wrapped up editing a brand new music video. #1 music video for gilli moon’s 2010 (6th) album, "the stillness", this music video is for the song featured on the album, “Days In November”. Performed and shot in South Park Colorado (by David Harvey) while performing at a festival out there with her band mates Andy Catt and Shawn Cunnane, as well as landscapes from the tour bus going through Fargo, North Dakota, and through the Canadian Rockies, when Ms. Moon was on tour with Eric Idle (Monty Python) a few years back, the footage is now all bundled up in a tight music video edited by Matt Thorne. The video is about life on the road, especially as a touring artist, going from one town to the next, and "sending back postcards of lessons" one finds along the way. It's also about love, and dreaming of a time of joy and wanting to find that again. This song speaks of enjoying the journey, and looking towards tomorrow as a time of hope for all of us. The video uses the seasons (especially Fall/Winter) and the countryside, particularly gilli moon's new love for the US and Canadian landscapes that she has travelled many times now on tour. Shots from the tour bus, or beside the road emphasizes "the journey" and the very fact that in life.... we are always moving.....
Making "the stillness" Album - in the studio with gilli moon - video
gilli moon's 6th album, "the stillness" was a lot of fun to make. Step inside the studio in Burbank, California, to witness gilli moon and her players (Andy Catt on bass, Shawn Cunnane on guitar, Frank Musarra on drums, Little Sista on backing vocals and Matt Thorne, co-producer, engineer and bass) record the songs for her album. It's intimate, it's real, it's musical, it's raw.

Recap last month
Wow what a whirlwind 4 weeks. July has just sped by. I feel like I launched the album just yesterday but it was June 29. Since that moment, I have been on a mad dash to release, express, promote and sell. I've done a dozen radio interviews, gone to Virginia Beach and back (dolphins, and the Borders gig were a good 1st place equally), and have been on a high doing music videos. Loving life.
...It is the lyrics to these pieces of her inner soul that take this project to a higher level From the first note.... screaming for a top ten chart position. Her music reminds me of a cross between Alanis Morissette and Carole King. Very much like her visual artistry, her music also paints a picture of hope, a picture of inner strength. She is indeed a warrior!" THE JERSEY SHORE
"This love shines through on Gilli’s latest release "the stillness". Structurally the song writing is consistent with the premise of the prose; soft whispers of new age trance building to progressive rock finales.....ebbing between frenzy and stillness; .....I felt the lyrics were particularly strong on Silent Prophet and a good example of what to expect from "the stillness" as a whole."
