About Eva Moon
With an eclectic background as a vocalist and musician on both coasts and in Eastern Europe since the late 1970s, Eva Moon has been writing and performing her original music and theatrical works around the Pacific Northwest since 2002. Far from typical singer-songwriter fare, her compositions are ironic, energetic commentaries on modern life. Her original shows include 7 Deadly Sins and Me which recently closed a nine-month run in Seattle, My Perfect Life and Other Delusions, Eva Moon’s Stimulus Package, The Deal With It Cabaret (all performed with her band, Eva Moon & the Lunatics) and The Mutant Diaries, her first entirely solo show. She has released five CDs and her work has appeared in the movie soundtracks of You May Not Kiss the Bride (directed by Rob Hedden, 2011) and Plunder (directed by Danny Schechter, 2009). Eva sings in fifteen different languages, including English.
In late 2011 she learned she carried the BRCA1 genetic mutation and underwent a full hysterectomy and double mastectomy to avoid almost certain odds of cancer - all while her mother was dying of BRCA1-related cancer. Now she’s returned - and turned her creative energies to a solo show to tell this very personal story in The Mutant Diaries: Unzipping My Genes.
Eva Moon & the Lunatics have released two CD's, Something's Brewing in 2004 and Moon Falling Down in 2009. You can learn more about them at http://evamoon.net. She also plays with Eastern European Gypsy band Balkanarama, Bollywood hits band, Chai Tea Latte and entertains worldwide audiences in virtual worlds online.
Eva supports FORCE. FORCE is the only national nonprofit organization devoted to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Its mission includes support, education, advocacy, awareness, and research specific to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Its programs serve anyone with a BRCA mutation or a family history of cancer.
