Chandra Moon is a Bristol, UK based artist. She’s recorded two highly acclaimed albums and performs live regularly in Bristol and occasionally at other venues and festivals. Hard to place in a specific genre, her work varies from acoustic, rock to folk to reggae with some ambient tracks and electronica thrown in! You can buy her songs track by track here using PayPal at a very reasonable price!

Her live band features Paddy Uglow, multi instrumentalist and backing vocalist as well as the wonderful Jimi Can on percussion with occasional appearances of other guest musicians playing special instruments! Many of her songs originate from African drum rhythms which she's studied and enjoyed for many years.

Both her albums – Full Circle and At The Healing Tree were recorded and produced by Richard Bloom at Chapel Studios in Bristol. The albums feature some extremely talented musicians are available on iTunes.

She also launched two stations here: Over The Moon where she's adding all sorts of tracks that she personally likes and Airspace for ambient and chillout music.

....."Intelligent, beautifully crafted songs"- Bristol Venue

....."It's good stuff and should go down really well in the acoustic music scene happening in Bristol currently........A fine album" Gary Smith - Bristol Uncovered BBC Radio Bristol.

....."Soulful, melodic and chilled, Chandra Moon's album 'Full Circle' rests on slick, uncluttered production boasting some enchanting vocals backed by dreamy strings, classical guitar, double bass and woodwind....

...."If you like KD Lang, Ryan Adams or Morcheeba, this may well be an album for you" - Bristol Rocks.



Only You Know Who You Are - Second Rough Recording
I wrote this song many years ago about unrecquited love. The recording has some bumps and clangs in it and I'd like to record it properly in the studio when I can. I hope you like it anyway!



Singer-Songwriter
h h

Before You Were Born
This is a crazy reggae song about taking LSD in the seventies - I'm not recommending it - quite the opposite but I don't regret it! You'll find this track on my album At The Healing Tree or individually on iTunes. Hope you like the video!



Reggae
h h

Can't Touch The Sky
This song was #1 Song on Folk/Acoustic/Americana New Songs Chart for several months and 1st in all genres for some time. It remains my most popular tune and I love playing it live. The guitar picking for this song is inspired by an African drum rhythm which got stuck in my head and developed into this track.



Acoustic Alternative
h h

Appollo (Kora and Flute)
Moriba on Kora in Gambia and me on flute in Bristol UK - the only way we can play together in the pandemic is online.



World
h h

Full Circle
I wrote this song after the Boxing Day Tsunami 2004. The more recent events in Japan brought all the memories back again. It's the title track of my first album. Here's a You Tube video of a recent live performance of the song.



Alternative Retro and Psychedelic
h h

Evermore
I wrote this simple love song about my lovely man. Hope you like the new video by Creative Media recorded in my house!



Alternative
h h

Easy
This is one of my favourite songs to play live and is about the things we can do in dreams or when the soul is freed from the physical constraints of our bodies. Thanks to Paddy Uglow for the video - hope you enjoy!



Ambient Pop
h h

No Friend Of Mine
This is a song I wrote in 2008 about a very good of friend of mine who suddenly turned on me for reasons unknown. We've never reconciled and I still don't know why. Mastered version March 2013.



Alternative Blues
h h

Through The Fingers Of Your Hand
This is a new recording of this song about losing your creative flow, feeling time is passing uselessly instead of creatively. A phase I went through when I tried living in the countryside. Mastered version.



Ambient Pop
h h

Trust Me
This was one of my earliest songs which didn't get recorded on the first album. Hope you enjoy this new mix.



Acoustic Ambient
h h

Twice A Year
This song is about only seeing your father twice a year as a child - it's not really a sad song but people always think it is!



Acoustic
h h

People of This Earth
I wrote this song about peace and equality - sadly still relevant today in these times of racism, war and strife it seems the only way to counter war is for people to recognise their sameness rather than our difference and find peace in themselves.



Spiritual
h h

At The Healing Tree
I wrote this song after an amazing hopi ear candle session - it speaks of childhood memories, ghosts and Africa. It is the title track of my second album. I hope you enjoy it.



World
h h

Clear As A Dream
A dreamy song to chill to - about fond memories of love and friendships old and was #1 in genre (Ambient) for about six months in 2011!



Chillout
h h

Five Years Ago
This is my most bluesy track - about not letting go of a relationship you know should be over by now! Mastered version March 2013.



Alternative Blues
h h

Strip It Down
This is a dance song recorded today with Paddy Uglows on keys and electronics and recording and me on guitar, vocals and composition.



Electro Dance Rock
h h

Haven't Known You Very Long
This song has suddenly gone up to #1 (Jan 2014) in genre after all this time! Nice one - thanks for listening everyone.



Latin Rock
h h

Destiny
This song is about the reality of what we can and can't choose about in our lives.



Singer Songwriter
h h

Fiery Hoop
This song is about somehow overcoming your fear and just going for it!



Alternative Modern Rock
h h

Over So Quick
A song about the speed life is whizzing past!!



Melodic Rock
h h

Ali Sajo
Another traditional Mandinka song from Gambia sung by Moriba and accompanied by me on the flute. Recorded in Gambia.



World
h h

Sing A Song Of All Our Nations
This is a very rough demo of a track I'd like to record properly. It's about the madness of war inspired by the situation in Syria.



Alternative Modern Rock
h h

Here And Now
Rough demo of an old song about unrequited love.



Singer Songwriter
h h

Shadow Puppets
As it's Halloween coming up I thought I'd move this weird and spooky song up my playlist. It is about the awful tricks your own mind plays at night to keep you awake! Hope you like the video Paddy and I made for the album launch!



left field
h h

Miniyambar
This is a recording of Moriba Kuyarteh on Kora with Chandra Moon on Flute at Sandele Ecolodge, Kartong, The Gambia.



World
h h

Alifa Yaya
This is another track with Moriba Kuyateh on Kora (African harp) with his kora student Sean Gaskell. Plus Chandramoon on flute and Moussa Sylla on Bolon (African bass)and Chris Diallo on shaker.



World
h h

Rain, Rain It Poureth Down!
This song was inspired by a West African rhythm which is similar to a lot of folk music. The time signature is 7/8 but feels more like 12/8 as it's all in triplets! I wrote the lyrics in 2007 after terrible floods in the UK and devastating floods in Kenya. Although the tune seems happy, the message is serious.I was delighted that Jo May agreed to play the bodhran and spoons on this track with Paddy Uglow on the fiddle. It reached #1 in all genres here for several weeks! Mastered version.



Acoustic Folk
h h

Banali
Another traditional Mandinka song from Gambia. Recorded in Gambia in 2019



World
h h

A Travelling Man (Very rough acoustic demo)
I wrote this song about a dear friend who passed away last year.



Acoustic English songwriting
h h

Sit Here Dreaming
The cries of seagulls which I've tried to emulate in the instrumental break was what inspired me to write this tune.... did well in the blues chart here at IAC.



Acoustic Blues
h h

Banali
This song is from The Gambia and the Kora is played by Moriba Kuyarteh and I'm playing the flute.



African
h h

Endless Love
I wrote this song on a visit to Australia to see my spiritual teacher



Spiritual
h h

Foday Kabar (Live jam session)
Live jam session of traditional Mandinka song played in the Gambia - Moriba and Sean - Kora Chandra Moon - Flute, Moussa Sylla - Bolon



World
h h

Rocking Horse
A song of retribution by a woman on a man - a completely true story - I really did burn his rocking horse!



Melodic Rock
h h

When It Ends
Trying to stay as friends after a relationship has finished. Enjoy Richard Bloom's great guitar solo in the instrumental break! This one was on the KIAC Hitline for several months and is now climbing the charts - Thanks!



Love songs
h h

Dombondir
Moriba and I playing a song we wrote together about Dombondir Festival in the Casamance region of Senegal



World

Chandra,
I have left a couple of messages for you - one here in PM on IMP and one on another web site where both you and I are members. My guess is you are so busy making beautiful music that checking for messages is not always high on your list of things to do each day.
In any event, I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for your purchase of my song "What Difference Will It Make". Thank you very much.
All the best on your upcoming trip to Oz and for your valued contribution to the music scene here at IMP.
Neil
