About

LITTLE INTRO

Hello there! My name is Emma Huntington and I am Little Moon. 

I am using Kickstarter to fund, release, and distribute my debut album UNPHASED. I want to make music my living and your contributions would help me share my music with the world.

UNPHASED: THE ALBUM

UNPHASED is a collection of melodies I've written over the course of 16 years. These are melodies from some of the darkest, messiest, and most mundane moments of my life.  UNPHASED challenges the belief that hard times only exist to accentuate the good. -- The orchestrations are wild and strange. The vocals are raw, with flaws exposed. Everything was done in an effort to highlight the beauty of roughness and imperfection. This very personal album proposes a very personal belief that beauty, love, and meaning can be found, not only from the light after darkness, but from darkness itself. 

You can listen to the first single from UNPHASED below <3

THE WIZARDS

My goal is to continue making and distributing meaningful art with the most creative and beautiful folks I know: my friends. :') 

They are the reason why I even bother to promote and kickstart this album. I sing praises to this team of brilliant minds. They brought this project to life and they make me believe in magic. <3

Risks and challenges

As a musician, I have to depend on human beanz like you to determine the success of my career and that is a BONKERS big concept for a little moon like me. I am clumsily learning the art of asking for help and I sometimes fight the thought that I am unworthy of such help. Learning to make peace with this process has been perfectly messy and imperfectly wonderful. Music is not a little hobby that I like to do on the side of a "real job". I quit my job because making music my life has always been the goal. I don't have a plan B and I am a very new and unknown artist to the music industry.
This is why the art of asking is important. As nervous and scared as I might be, learning how to ask for help may be one of the most beautiful art forms on this earth. I am certainly messy at it. But I am also grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow and love and that is ENTIRELY thanks to kind neighbors like yourselves.
So thank you neighbor :')
