Virtual and Real Worlds Collide: Seattle-Area Singer Plays to a Global Audience With Simultaneous Live and Cyberspace CD Release

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - One of the most popular female vocalists in cyberspace, Eva Moon and her real life band, the Lunatics, bring worlds together in a simultaneous live and virtual release concert for their new CD, "Moon Falling Down," on the ground in Redmond and online in "Second Life." Moon is known in both worlds for her hot music and hilariously sexy, no-holds barred lyrics.

For the uninitiated, Second Life is an online virtual world where some of today's most talented musicians play live for audiences around the world without leaving their homes. No roadies, no tour buses. It's rapidly becoming a hot channel for savvy musicians to reach a global market. The band earned enough money performing in Second Life over the past year to finance the new CD.

Eva Moon & the Lunatics will unveil "Moon Falling Down," their second album since the band started fusing tight instrumental stylings of guitar, horns, keys, bass and drums with Moon's unique lyrics and voice. The CD includes 11 original songs in styles ranging from Latin ("Brazilian Wax") to jazz ("Hard for Me") to reggae ("Boomerang Boy") to hot swing ("Mr. ESP") to the ethereal title track, a scary but scientifically accurate lullaby about gravity.

Real-world concertgoers can download Moon's blend of pop, jazz, Latin and "Wry-Fi" comedy directly to their ears at the free, all-ages real-world concert 7 p.m. Saturday, June 27 at Soulfood Books, 15748 Redmond Way, Redmond. Second Lifers can teleport to the concert by searching for EvaMoon Ember in the events listings. Opening is Texas and Second Life songwriter Alex Whitmore, known online as Capos Calderwood, who will just happen to be in Redmond that day.
