Chandra Moon is a Bristol, UK based artist. She’s recorded two highly acclaimed albums and is seven tracks in to a third hopefully to be released in 2023. She performs live regularly in Bristol and occasionally at other venues and festivals. Hard to place in a specific genre, her work varies from acoustic, rock to folk to reggae with some ambient tracks and electronica thrown in! You can buy her songs track by track or full albums on iTunes or at Bandcamp.

Her live band features Paddy Uglow, multi instrumentalist and backing vocalist as well as the wonderful Jimi Can on percussion with occasional appearances of other guest musicians playing special instruments! Many of her songs originate from African drum rhythms which she's studied and enjoyed for many years. She is also flautist with AfroWelsh Connection and plays regularly with them at festivals and local venues.

Both her albums – Full Circle and At The Healing Tree were recorded and produced by Richard Bloom at Chapel Studios in Bristol.

She has several stations including the popular Over The Moon where she's adding all sorts of tracks that she personally likes and Airspace for ambient and chillout music.

....."Intelligent, beautifully crafted songs"- Bristol Venue

....."It's good stuff and should go down really well in the acoustic music scene happening in Bristol currently........A fine album" Gary Smith - Bristol Uncovered BBC Radio Bristol.

....."Soulful, melodic and chilled, Chandra Moon's album 'Full Circle' rests on slick, uncluttered production boasting some enchanting vocals backed by dreamy strings, classical guitar, double bass and woodwind....

...."If you like KD Lang, Ryan Adams or Morcheeba, this may well be an album for you" - Bristol Rocks.

Can't Touch The Sky
This song was #1 Song on Folk/Acoustic/Americana New Songs Chart for several months and 1st in all genres for some time. It remains my most popular tune and I love playing it live. The guitar picking for this song is inspired by an African drum rhythm which got stuck in my head and developed into this track.



Acoustic Alternative
h
                                    h

Twice A Year
This song is about only seeing your father twice a year as a child - it's not really a sad song but people always think it is!



Acoustic
h
                                    h

Before You Were Born
This is a crazy reggae song about taking LSD in the seventies - I'm not recommending it - quite the opposite but I don't regret it! You'll find this track on my album At The Healing Tree or individually on iTunes. Hope you like the video!



Reggae
h
                                    h

Shadow Puppets
As it's Halloween coming up I thought I'd move this weird and spooky song up my playlist. It is about the awful tricks your own mind plays at night to keep you awake! Hope you like the video Paddy and I made for the album launch!

                                    h

Full Circle
I wrote this song after the Boxing Day Tsunami 2004. The more recent events in Japan brought all the memories back again. It's the title track of my first album. Here's a You Tube video of a recent live performance of the song.



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h
                                    h

Ambient Pop

                                    h

No Friend Of Mine

Alternative Blues
h
                                    h

Through The Fingers Of Your Hand

Ambient Pop
h
                                    h

People of This Earth
I wrote this song about peace and equality - sadly still relevant today in these times of racism, war and strife it seems the only way to counter war is for people to recognise their sameness rather than our difference and find peace in themselves.



Spiritual
h
                                    h

Trust Me
This was one of my earliest songs which didn't get recorded on the first album. Hope you enjoy this new mix.



Acoustic Ambient

                                    h

                                    h

Rain, Rain It Poureth Down!
This song was inspired by a West African rhythm which is similar to a lot of folk music. The time signature is 7/8 but feels more like 12/8 as it's all in triplets! I wrote the lyrics in 2007 after terrible floods in the UK and devastating floods in Kenya. Although the tune seems happy, the message is serious.I was delighted that Jo May agreed to play the bodhran and spoons on this track with Paddy Uglow on the fiddle. It reached #1 in all genres here for several weeks! Mastered version.



Acoustic Folk
h
                                    h

Clear As A Dream

Chillout
h
                                    h

Five Years Ago
This is my most bluesy track - about not letting go of a relationship you know should be over by now! Mastered version March 2013.



Alternative Blues
h
                                    h

Haven't Known You Very Long

                                    h

Spiritual

                                    h

Melodic Rock
h
                                    h

Chandra,
I have left a couple of messages for you - one here in PM on IMP and one on another web site where both you and I are members. My guess is you are so busy making beautiful music that checking for messages is not always high on your list of things to do each day.
In any event, I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for your purchase of my song "What Difference Will It Make". Thank you very much.
All the best on your upcoming trip to Oz and for your valued contribution to the music scene here at IMP.
Neil
