Album Launch Oct 25th 2013

I had a really great evening to launch my new album At The Healing Tree. I had Paddy Uglow and Andrea Hernandez doing support sets then performed two sets of songs with the band I put together specially.

It was really good to play the tracks with the full backing of a band to do them more justice than when it’s just me and my guitar! Everyone did brilliantly and it felt like a turning point. I sold a few albums and also it’s now available as a hard copy on my website Chandra Moon and also for download on CDbaby, iTunes and Amazon.

Here’s a photo from the evening.

Next stage is to make some more videos and do some more live gigs and hopefully write some new songs!

New Album At Last – At The Healing Tree

I am very happy to announce I have finally finished my second album At The Healing Tree and I am having a launch gig in Bristol on October 25th at The Halo Bar, Gloucester Road, 8pm – it would be wonderful if you could come.

The album features some wonderful musicians and I’m lining up a great band for the launch.

If you can’t make the launch or want to get your copy now, you can purchase the album at my website

The album only costs £7.50 and I’m offering a very special deal of including my first album Full Circle for an extra £2.50 – so only £10 for two beautifully produced albums.

Of course, you can buy them separately too.

So, hope to see you at the launch or do visit my website to get your copy (or contact me direct if you’d rather pay by cheque). Thanks so much for all your support which has inspired me to get this far!

Gig from Feb 18th

We had a lovely time last Monday at our last Electrsonica gig. Paddy played a set (I played flute on his third song), then I played three of my own songs with him on keyboard/flute.

The other artists the rest of the evening were brilliant and the videos of all our performances are at the link below.

On other things, my knee is still bad but slowly improving. I had an MRI scan which shows extensive tearing to my medial collatoral ligament so am now doing painful rehab exercises. The physio has said it could be another two m0nths before I can go back to tennis! What  a drag.

At home we have extensive work going on converting two small bedrooms into one lovely big room with a shower room in the corner. Will be brilliant when finished but noisy and dusty in the meantime.

Going back to Peter’s amazing story of finding his family in Russia and Ukraine, we got the sad news yesterday that his Uncle Peter died a couple of days ago, so he didn’t quite make 90. We are so pleased though that he had the chance to meet Peter and his brother before he died – both for them and him this was an amazing experience. Sad that the rest of the family didn’t meet him but at least we’re all in touch now with younger members of the family too.

Still Hobbling!

Well after more than six weeks I’m still really quite disabled by my torn ligaments in my knee and it’s still very painful. However, I can still play music and do things round the house albeit much slower than normal!

Tomorrow we have builders arriving to start work on taking down a stud wall between two small rooms in our house and making it into one lovely big room with a shower room. Plus knocking a new back door out through the utility room to save clumping mud and muck through the house. It will be noisy, dirty and chaotic for a couple of weeks but hopefully will be worth it all in the end!

I’m practicing for our gig on February 18th at Halo Bar and also I’m being interviewed for BCFM (Bristol Community Radio) next Monday. Work in the studio is interesting now, having reached the mixing and mastering part of the album so still hoping for a release in March/April.

Anyway, that’s my news for now – if you’re in Bristol come and see us play on Feb 18th!
