ABOUT ALANNA LUNA:
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 all around Arizona, California & Mexico, Ms. Luna began LIVE DJ/PA performances when they were still considered a novelty. Luna became well known at this time for her unique vocal stylings and quick-change skills, as she would often wear as many as six costumes for an hour and fifteen minute set. EOS eventually outgrew the still very musically close-minded Arizona electronic dance music (EDM) scene and moved to LA where they were an instant hit and performed at many of the well-known clubs and at several very large-scale outdoor events. Amazing opportunities presented themselves, so EOS had the chance 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 events like Winter Fresh and EDC. Although EOS only released one independent demo EP, "Sacred Places," they are part of the history and evolution of what EDM 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. INDIE CD Released : VELVET PANCAKES 11/11/11
