Moby Bio

Richard Melville Hall better known by his stage name Moby, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, producer, animal rights activist, and author. He has sold over 20 million records worldwide, and AllMusic considers him to be “one of the most important dance music figures of the early 1990s, helping bring the music to a mainstream audience both in the UK and in America”.

Moby Age

He was born on September 11, 1965 in Harlem, New York City, U.S, where he also grew in his childhood age.

Moby Family

He is the only child of Elizabeth McBride , a medical secretary, and James Frederick Hall, a chemistry professor, who died in a car crash while drunk when he was two.His father gave him the nickname him three days after his birth as his parents considered the name Richard too large for a newborn baby.

Moby Girl Friends

He is possibly single but he has been in a relationship with Kelly Tisdale (2001 – 2004), also he had an encounter with Natalie Portman (2001).

Moby Education

He took up music at the age of nine. He started on classical guitar and received piano lessons from his mother before studying music theory. In 1983, he became the guitarist in a hardcore punk band, the Vatican Commandos, playing on their debut EP Hit Squad for God. Around this time he was the lead vocalist for Flipper for two days; He played bass for their reunion shows in the 2000s.He formed a post punk group named AWOL around the time of his eighteenth birthday. He is credited on their only release, a self-titled EP, as  Hall.
He graduated from Darien High School in 1983. He started a philosophy degree at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Connecticut, and became a DJ at the campus radio station WHUS.

Moby Career

His first live solo performance was witnessed by his future longtime manager Eric Härle, who recalled Moby’s set: “The music was amazing, but the show was riddled with technical mishaps. It left me very intrigued and impressed in a strange way.” In 1990, Moby signed a five-year deal with Instinct Records, an independent label still in its infancy.
his full-length debut album, Moby, was released in July 1992.
Released in September 1996 in the UK, where it peaked at No. 38, and in February 1997 in the US, Animal Rights received largely a negative response from his dance music fan base who felt he had abandoned them, creating doubts as to what kind of artist Moby really was.
In 1999, he released the album Play, influenced by the Lomax albums that an early friend, Gregor, had lent to Moby.
2009-2010: Wait for Me In a November 2008 interview with SuicideGirls, he spoke about the follow-up album to Last Night: “I want to make a really emotional, beautiful record. I don’t know if I will succeed, but my goal is to make something very personal, very melodic, very beautiful.” On April 14, 2009, he confirmed that the album would be released on June 30.
As a geeky technical aside, we mixed the record using purely analog equipment in true stereo, akin to how records were mixed in the late ’60s, some of the songs sound pretty amazing in headphones, if I do say so myself… Moby toured for the album with a full band, something that occurred rarely during Moby’s Last Night promotion, except for selected festival performances.
2010-2012: Destroyed Moby promoting the Destroyed book and album at a performance and discussion in the Brooklyn Museum, 2011 In January 2010, he announced that he was to begin working on his next record.

Moby Net Worth

Being an American singer, songwriter, musician, DJ and photographer, he has a net worth of $32 million dollars. He became a household name with the release of his album, “Play” in the late 90s. “Play” is the highest selling electronica album ever, with 10 million copies sold internationally. He has released 12 studio albums and continues to DJ around the world.
