Aradhana Silvermoon Bio
Aradhana's soulful, heart-opening songs spring from a place deep within, inspiring audiences across the country. Her unique folk guitar rhythms accompany powerful, poetic lyrics, sung with sensitivity and passion. Through her angelic vocals and earth-tones, she emits a warm, loving, and nurturing energy that leaves you hungry for more.
Baltimore born and raised, Aradhana's first love is music. She sang in numerous choruses and choirs throughout her childhood which led her to study voice, guitar, piano, and African drumming in high school and college. After completing her degree in fine arts from the University of Maryland, she and a couple of friends created the acoustic group, Roots A'Risin'--initially all female--which later evolved into a four piece band of both men and women. This Washington DC based band worked extensively on their original recordings, and played at various venues across the east coast-- including opening for the Jerry Garcia Band New Year's Eve, 2003. After much learning and growth as a musician, performer, and friend, Silvermoon felt a calling to honor her true path to best serve creation as a vessel for this healing music.
In March 2003, she parted ways with the band and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her solo career. She has completed her first album, Silvermoon with Roots A'Risin', and released her first solo album, "Infinite Oneness," on June 2, 2006. Inspired by her adventures, love, and reverence for all life, Aradhana has performed her prolific music at healing centers, yoga studios, music festivals, coffee shops, and bars throughout the country.
In early 2007 Silvermoon joined LA based conscious hip-hop band, Luminaries, where she co-created with a collective of equally talented and inspiring artists until March 2009. While with Luminaries, they recorded their first EP, "Love Music" and released their first music video, "Peace" which won an award at the Elevate Film Festival.
She can now be found making music with her beloved, TruthI, also former member of Luminaries, as their folk-hop duo, I,Star. Stay tuned for her next solo album, as well as the debut I,Star album, scheduled for release 2011.
