“Well … pretty much anything that involves Artists for Peace and Justice I try to come out and support.” – Moby
Moby, otherwise known as Richard Melville Hall, is a multiplatinum American musician, DJ, photographer, and activist. His innovative electronic music albums Everything is Wrong (1995), Play (1999), and Destroyed (2011) have made him an international favorite, selling over 10 million copies around the world. Moby is also an outspoken activist for a variety of causes including veganism, animal rights, human rights, and intellectual property.
In 2004, Moby was awarded and appreciated with IMNF’s Music Has Power Award for his dedication to music therapy.
In 2007 Moby started a website designed for independent and non-profit filmmakers, film students, and anyone in need of free music for their independent, non-profit film.
In 2013 Moby “is back with arguably one of the best albums of his career, Innocents.”
“One of the reasons I’ve dedicated my life to making music is because I love the way that music affects me emotionally and the way that it affects other people emotionally…a lot of times I’m trying to make music that not only affects me emotionally, but also transforms the space in which I’m listening to the music. The test of a good song is, does it make something mundane seem more special?” – Moby
Moby has been actively involved with Artists for Peace and Justice for over three years, playing at our fundraisers and spreading the word about our work in Haiti.
Moby signs the Chrysler 300 at the 2011 Vanity Fair Campaign Hollywood event celebrating Artists for Peace and Justice.
