in Harlem, New York, Moby's birth name was Richard Melville Hall. His parents are credited with naming him Moby, adopting
the name from the classic novel, Moby Dick. The author, Herman Melville, is even a relative of Moby's - he is Moby's great-great-great-great
uncle. Moby's father died when he was just a toddler. His mother decided to relocate the family to Connecticut where her parents
lived. With their help and support in raising Moby, his mother was able to complete her college degree.
for music started at an early age. His mother, who was a pianist and a collector of records, inspired him. "She used to play
me a lot of different stuff. Some of it was very weird classical stuff, not the usual thing for a young child to listen to.
But this became a huge influence on me when I was growing up," Moby said.
When he was nine, he took up classical guitar
as well as music theory. In high school, he founded the Vatican Commandoes. They issued the Hit Squad for God EP. Later on
in high school, Moby joined the fold of a different group called Awol.
Post-high school, Moby studied philosophy at
the University of Connecticut. After one year, he called it quits to work on his music. As the 80s wore on, Moby did everything
he could to pull the trigger on his music career - from gigging with bands like Gin Train and Caeli Soul to punching a clock
at a record store. But it was DJing that catapulted Moby to success.
By the time the 80s came to a close, Moby had relocated
to the Big Apple and inked a deal with Instinct Records. His debut track was "Mobility," which dropped in 1990. Although his
first effort didn't make any waves, his sophomore single did. "Go" raised Moby's profile and put him on the mainstream map.
In the U.K., the tune landed in the Top 10, cementing his status as a trailblazer on the EDM scene.
Everything is Wrong
dropped in 1995. His debut techno effort garnered immense praise. Animal Rights followed a year later. In 1997, he released
I Like to Score. Many of the songs off this album were highlighted in a number of movies. His 1999 album, Play, achieved global
recognition, yielding smashes like "Porcelain" and "Natural Blues."
Play was followed by 18, selling over four millions
copies around the world. Several more albums followed throughout the 2000s and beyond. His latest album is Wait for Me, which
dropped in 2013.
Moby's discography is comprised of six remix albums, 11 studio albums, 65
singles, 11 studio albums, one live album, 86 music videos, four EPs, three video albums and 10 compilation albums. His studio
albums include: Moby (1992); Ambient (1993); Everything Is Wrong (1995); Animal Rights (1996); Play (1999); 18 (2002); Hotel
(2005); Last Night (2008); Wait for Me (2009); Destroyed (2011); and Innocents (2013).
music, Moby is dedicated to his Christian faith. "In about 1985 I read the teachings of Christ and was instantly struck by
the idea that Christ was somehow divine. When I say I love Christ and love the teachings of Christ, I mean that in the most
simple and naive way. I'm not saying I'm right."
Moby also dedicates his time to supporting nonprofit organizations
like the Humane Society.
