Billboard, who states she “beat the odds,” at making it in the music industry after emigrating from the Australian wilderness to Los Angeles, and who Artists for a Better World called “a female Elton John,” gilli moon is not only a unique, evocative and energetic chanteuse, but also has become a beacon for artists worldwide, inspired and motivated by gilli’s story and her creativity.

Her prolific output lead Newsweek Magazine, in an article about successful DIY singer/songwriters, to state, “For artists like gilli moon, penning pensive ballads in her living room using nothing more than high-tech tools and good business sense, they also represent a viable path to success.”
