beautiful mess encapsulates gilli moon’s victorious 20 year tumultuous evolution as a polymedia artist who continues to push the envelope forging her entrepreneurial music career, as well as venturing into motherhood, in Los Angeles.  Always conceptual in her albums, gilli writes of the zig zag theory of her life story: growing up in an isolated bushland of Australia which toughened her focus and ambition, then arriving in LA to launch her label and successfully release 7 albums with her own strategies from the early millennium dotcom era. Gilli, truly, was a pioneer of being an ‘indie’ artist before it became fashionable. But life on the road for a decade has its ups and downs, and with the complete flip of the music business, gilli went into a creative pause to focus on motherhood of twins. During this time she reinvigorated her coaching for other artists, wrote 2 books, and slowly, at her own pace and time, record exquisite, quintessential ‘gilli moon originals’ that spoke about her journey evolving from that young and feisty warrior artist - to - grown-up mother, creator and entrepreneur.  

This album speaks to the heart and soul of all self-empowered women, and  men who love women, who see their lives and careers mixed with parenthood as messy yet amazing, in all of its beautiful ways. Having twin babies is quite a challenge, and some of the songs will share not only the emotions of being a new mother, but also the struggle of actually conceiving. I also went through quite a journey also with my entrepreneurial pursuits, and the music business in the last 10 years, with all its flaws.  beautiful mess shares all my emotions, good,  bad, sad, happy, beautiful and messy, all on display, and all at once. I throw my songs at you like I paint on a canvas. We hope my sonic textures stick in your ears, hearts and mind. 

The new album, beautiful mess, combines pop beats not out of place on a Dua Lipa album, and juxtapositions of piano, rock, RnB mixed like Madonna, David Bowie, or Lady Gaga. Now and them when you hear a piano solo, you could be thinking it’s Alicia Keys. Be careful, Gilli Moon is a veteran vocal prowess that when drenched in gilli’s penchant for the artistic and the colorful, brings to life an album of fire, beauty and, yes, sometimes messy.

Feel your beautiful mess as you listen to hers.
