Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Of course, I’m Betty Moon and am from Toronto and currently live here in Los Angeles, CA. To those that need the quick intro, I am a producer, songwriter and run a music company called Evolver Music, Inc. I have a new single/video out for a song called “Waste Your Time” and it comes from my 8th studio album ‘Chrome’. As I type this, I’m in the studio on break from finishing up my new album for a 2019 release.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Ah, this one is so hard to pin down! I grew up on rock n’ roll, so you’ll hear a lot of that influence in my music regardless of the genre or direction. I tend to get my ideas out by myself at home or in the studio, then collaborate with my inside team of incredible musicians and industry songwriters. I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the industry greats, and sometimes my favourites come from a team effort, and others are just myself writing completely on a piano, acoustic or crafting on Pro Tools till the early hours of the morning.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We’re working on some festival and special live shows for 2019. When someone comes to a Betty Moon show, it’s really an
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
I immediately think of “Sound”, maybe because it was just featured on a major TV show last week, or perhaps because it’s my favourite at the moment. It’s just a feel-good track, a bit more on the electronic side of things, and it pushed me to evolve my sound and further focus on my message. If you jump on Spotify and don’t know about Betty Moon, you’ll realize most of my music is rock, and I want fans to know the rock n’ roll soul still lives on even in my newer music which is more electronic/pop influenced.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Some of my more modern Canadian favorites are The Weeknd and Drake. I just can’t get their music out of my head. And I will still throw on a little Neil Young, Rush or Joni Mitchell if I’m feeling nostalgic.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
