Show: Desert Stars Festival @ Pappy and Harriet’s Sunday Sept 24th, @ 4:45 pm
By Lisa Morgan
There is an energy that draws an eclectic bunch to the high desert. What is barren, uncultured and weird in the eyes of some, is creatively inspiring, rich in magic and wildly romantic to others. To the music oriented highlanders who find beauty here, the creative unions are potentially endless, always beautiful but often short lived. I say all this to help you understand how significant it is for any of these fledgling movements to push forward into a sophomore year of performance and production. For that reason, I am ecstatic to announce a repeat performance of Earth Moon Earth one year after their debut at Pappy and Harriet’s. The project fueled by stellar producer/songcrafter Daniel Joeright of Gatos Trail Recording Studio and the intensely intuitive and hypnotizing vocals of Gabriella Evaro has graduated from “experimental” to a validated and forward moving project with an album set to be released March 2018.
Skye and Ross Bring Morcheeba Night to Social Hall SF
By Jeff Spirer
Earth Moon Earth opened for Skye & Ross. It was obvious this was a drummer’s band. Daniel Joeright, whose impressive resume includes David Byrne, Tom Waits, and most recently, The Rentals, puts out a big drum sound. Complementing Joeright is a band that includes two on keyboards, a bass player, and a hooded Theremin player. Gabriella Evora arrived after a brief instrumental intro, looking as if she wandered in from Woodstock. Or Burning Man. Listening to the band, it was a little surprising that they weren’t at Burning Man.
EARTH MOON EARTH Release First Single “New Mourning” (Hummingbird)
Interview by Gina Finstad
Hailing from the warm desert sands of California comes a new band with deep roots. Earth Moon Earth consists of members Daniel Joeright (drums), Gabriella Evaro (vocals), Be Hussey (bass), Esteban Chavez (synthesizers), Scott Schaffer (theremin and modular apparatus) and Bob Villwock (keyboards). Together, this collective of creatives bring you a mix of desert space rock with a nice heady celestial kick (think Jimi Hendrix meets Grace Slick in White Rabbit).
It all began at the annual Yuca Man Shake Down party hosted by former The Rentals drummer, Daniel Joeright. Dan had invited a handful of bands to play at the event, and while mingling with the masses he became inspired and decided to round-up a few members to test out some new sounds he had been working on in his home studio.
Dove Dances with Drum in Earth Moon Earth
By Lisa Morgan
The legacy of the musically magic Evaro family continues to grow and evolve as Gabriella Evaro’s dove-like voice and empathically poetic lyric sense join forces with the unique rhythm soundscapes of Daniel Joeright, former drummer for the Rentals. Helping them press deep into some uncharted pop-esque celestial folk rock are Be Hussey (bass), Esteban Chavez (synthesizers), Scott Schaffer (Theremin and modular apparatus) and Bob Villwock (keyboards). Evaro, whose signature voice known for its sultry gentility, shows a unique impassioned strength in this project as it soars above the fusion of rhythm and melodic-synth to frame the lyrical pictures of hope within the human experience painted by this ensemble.
I want to thank everyone who came out to see us at Pappy & Harriets on Sept 1st and to our California shows supporting Skye&Ross (Morcheeba). We had an amazing time and met some truly great people. We got to travel on a purple spaceship named Barney; “Glitch” the theremin wizard alien was born and we achieved new heights musically resulting in some really great opportunities. We are currently hard at work completing the debut Earth Moon Earth album, we will keep you posted on our progress and will continue to tell our stories here. Godspeed! ~ D
