ABOUT ALANNA LUNA
The Madame of Media, The Shamaness of Sound
Former lead singer of Exhibition of Sound (EOS) 2001-2008 a live electronic act that began performing at house parties and underground raves in early 2001 and toured in Arizona, California & Mexico, Ms. Luna began "LIVE DJ/PA" performances (where electronic music is created & performed live with a band rather than a DJ spinning records) when they were still considered a novelty. Luna and EOS became well known at this time for her unique vocal stylings, elaborate set designs, and quick-change skills, as she would often wear as many as six costumes for an hour and fifteen minute performance. Equipped with a variety of Korg beat machines and production devices, Luna often played live solo sets.
EOS eventually outgrew the still very musically close-minded Arizona electronic dance music (EDM) scene and moved to LA where they were an instant phenomenon and performed at many of the well-known clubs and several very large-scale festivals. At this time, Luna began hosting a live morning radio show for a company called X Radio. Amazing opportunities presented themselves during this time because of that exposure, and EOS was asked to perform with incredible and similar acts such as "Live PA" legends INFECTED MUSHROOM and THE SPEAKER JUNKIES at notable venues such as the Key Club & BB King's, and at budding events like Winter Fresh and Electronic Daisy Carnival. They also were asked to join the "Green Light Tour" with a group of very talented West Coast Rappers and toured all over California, playing at tons of venues.
Although EOS only released one independent demo EP, "Sacred Places," they are part of the history and evolution of what electronic music is today. In 2008 EOS members parted ways and Luna began the long journey as a solo artist and independent filmmaker.
After the breakup of EOS, Luna began to work on producing her own music and collaborating with producer and friend, Mike Da Silva.
