Moby (born Richard Melville Hall on September 11, 1965 in Harlem, New York, and raised in Darien, Connecticut) is an American singer, electronic musician and the name of his live band.

Moby has recently scored the soundtrack for Richard Kelly's upcoming movie 'Southland Tales'; whilst he is generally against composing music for films, he was a huge fan of Kelly's previous film 'Donnie Darko' and could not resist the offer the director gave him.

Departing completely from the style of Play and 18, Moby has instead gone for a much less interesting blend of his own voice and that of Laura Dawn, dropping the use of vocal samples completely (which I think were one of the real strengths of the last two albums).
Moby's voice, and the lack of sampling seems to be getting the brunt of criticism for this album.
If Moby had continued to use sampled sounds, I at this point would begin to feel it as too much a formula for him, instead he puts his own voice into his work much more then before - and while vocally he may not be the strongest he provides an insightful soul to the songs.

 Moby-Dick
His three boats stove around him, and oars and men both whirling in the eddies; one captain, seizing the line-knife from his broken prow, had dashed at the whale, as an Arkansas duellist at his foe, blindly seeking with a six inch blade to reach the fathom-deep life of the whale.
And then it was, that suddenly sweeping his sickle-shaped lower jaw beneath him, Moby Dick had reaped away Ahab's leg, as a mower a blade of grass in the field....
Small reason was there to doubt, then, that ever since that almost fatal encounter, Ahab had cherished a wild vindictiveness against the whale, all the more fell for that in his frantic morbidness he at last came to identify with him, not only all his bodily woes, but all his intellectual and spiritual exasperations.

 Moby CD
With stints in local punk group the Vatican Commandoes and nationwide punk ensemble Flipper on his resume, Richard decided that perhaps he could combine the energy and dynamics of punk rock with the synthetic textures and danceable beats of dance music.
And so with the name Richard Hall dropped to the wayside, Moby (a nickname that came from his relation to Herman Melville) was born.
Where once Richard had snarled at the crowds, now Moby got them off their butts and onto the dance floor.

Having followed Moby's rise since circa 1994 it has been amazing to watch what an impact he has had on music and on various cultural media over the years.
Almost every song has singing - primarily Moby's longing, almost cyring, voice - and almost every song is for those rainy nights, when the world doesn't make sense, when longing for companionship and understanding burdens the heart, yet with a subtle hope underneath it all.
Moby isn't much of a guitar player-so a near whole album of "post-punk"-ish pop tunes is hard to enjoy.
