TIMELINE

Mobybutton.gif (123 bytes) Moby was born Richard Melville Hall on September 11, 1965 In Connecticut. The name 'Moby' was a nickname from his childhood and a reference to his great great granduncle, Herman Melville, who wrote Moby Dick. In his teens, Moby began playing with various bands and eventually DJ-ing. But it wasn't until moving to New York in 1989 and gaining recognition as a club DJ that Moby was signed to a record deal - eventually landing him on radio, television, and dance clubs with his blend of electronica, dance, alternative, and pop music. Even better, Moby is known for his out-spoken opinions and support of various environmental and animal causes.
