Sept. 11: Singer-songwriter "Moby" is 48-years-old today.


Moby, born Richard Melville Hall in Harlem, New York, came by his nickname because the author of Moby Dick, Herman Melville, was his great-great-great-granduncle. (It's also the origin of his given middle name.)

Besides singing, Moby plays keyboard, guitar, bass guitar and drums. Moby became a successful artist on the ambient electronica scene, and achieved eight top 40 singles in the UK during the 1990s.

In 1999 he released the album Play, a mix of melancholic chill-out, ambient music, and upbeat electronica, that was critically acclaimed and produced an impressive eight hit singles including "Porcelain," "Natural Blues" and "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" Play became a commercial and cultural phenomenon, selling over 10 million copies worldwide, and with its eighteen songs receiving an unprecedented licensing in films, television and commercial advertisements.
