ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Live in the moment.

This is the theme that always comes up when the members of MOONRAKER talk about their songwriting, their live performances, and their spirituality. With the release of Connected on Velour this spring 2003, this is not only MOONRAKER's moment, this is their time.

Among MOONRAKER's members you will find a classically trained pianist, a self-taught bassist, a huge Muddy Waters fan, a chef, and a sonic healer. Their affinity for all things musical brought them together nearly four years ago. As Boston University students, Kody, David & Dan met in the BU dormitories (prior to Dan transferring to the Berklee School of Music) and immediately started jamming, playing everything from frat house events to local clubs around the Boston area. They recruited Kelli via a flyer and not long after she brought Shaolun, a fellow Berklee College of Music student and a fan of the band, to a rehearsal. He never left.

A heady year followed, with performances alongside Joan Osbourne, Lake Trout, DJ Spooky, Ice T and the Disco Biscuits. The band won WBOS' Best New Band in Boston [in 2001] and received regular airplay on the Boston stations WERS and WBCN. More recently, they were selected as one of six finalists in the Discmakers' Independent Music World Series. Their debut album, Nada Brahma, sold 3,000 copies independently, with people from all over the Northeast flocking to see the band's live performances.

Ready to take it up a notch, MOONRAKER are releasing Connected, which contains songs from the LP Nada Brahma, the Moonraker EP and three newly recorded tracks ("Salimander Skin", "Connected" and "Can I Love"). From the disco infused "Easy Fever" to the ethereal "Shalom" to the inspiring message of "Modern Way," MOONRAKER's quintet of talent delivers a unique, coherent sound that offers something for everyone. A hybrid of trance, rock, electronica and jazz, MOONRAKER have the spirit and soul to go all the way. File Under: Steely Dan, early 10,000 Maniacs, Björk, Portishead, early U2, Esthero - take your pick. Their mix of drum, bass, keyboard and guitar, accompanied by Scarr's memorable vocal phrasing & energy, is what makes MOONRAKER stand out in a crowded playing field.

The band's aim when they got together was, and still is, to let the music form itself. At an average age of [twenty-two], they still have many ideas waiting to be explored. They observe and contribute, but ultimately the music takes its course. Like a parent with a child, they take risks and realize that music can be shaped but not controlled. With talent this obvious, that's a good thing. MOONRAKER let the music flow and ride the wave. Take the journey with them.

Beautiful, intesting, I can't stop listening to it
This is a fantastic album. "Salamander Skin" and "Peaceful Inside" are beautiful and the live versions of "Easy Fever" and "Shalom" are great additions to my Moonraker obsession. The music is intesting and breaks genre boundaries of todays music

You need to hear the live tracks
If you are a moonraker fan this is a must have. If not it's a great start to your collection. This album really catches the energy of a live show. With fresh takes on old songs and previously unrecorded new songs this album really exhibits the band's growth over the last couple of years. IBM may be the best song ever.

Unbelievable! Energy of Live Show Blows Me Away
A friend got me into this band almost two years ago. A debut album and EP later, fans now get a live CD - things couldn't be better! You can just feel the energy in their music with this live release. Some tracks such as "Salimander Skin" and "Peaceful Inside" are so amazing that I want to hitchike east and see a live show.... until then, I'll be chilling in Rochester imagining. Five stars for Breathe; don't be afraid to buy this album, guys!

Jake, another stellar Mix.. Moonraker, you rock.
I had the pleasure of seeing this band live at The Reverb. Not when they recorded this CD, but on a subsequent occasion.

They were lively, original and very entertaining. I have heard the UNmastered version of this CD many times, and listening to sampled versions of the master, I can say with great confidence that this is one of the best live CD's you will ever hear.

I am becoming well known for my excellent live CD mixes, but Jake, you've topped me once again.

Can't wait to tour with you.

I love this CD, and I think that it's one of the best live CD's around, not just for peformance, but also for audio quality. Because of this fact, I was doubly upset by not getting the credit for recording this CD for them. I am the engineer at the Reverb that recorded the CD. I sold the CD to them under the condition that if there was to be any reproduction, and distribution, my name was to be spelled correctly. They paid a grand sum of $30 dollars for the recording, and assured me of credit. But I still love the album. Jake Disman, audio engineer @ The Reverb in Toronto... audiojake@hotmail.com
