Biography

Daniel was inspired to write his first song the day his mother died in July 4th, 2000. Shortly after, the concept of Full Moon Rising was born as an way to express the lessons learned through Daniel’s life experiences. By 2003, Full Moon Rising quickly excelled in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas performing at Internationally Acclaimed venues like The Viper Room, Whisky and House of Blues.

In 2005 Daniel Recorded and Self-Produced the first 2 Albums: compiling more then 20 musicians to create the personally reflective double-disc musical quest entitled “Release,” and the visionary single-band EP entitled “Transition.” Both records were released on April 19th 2005. Immediately following, Daniel embarked on a five and a half month United States Tour creatively entitled “The Chameleon Tour,” building a following of over 10,000 active viewers that followed him via Photo blog as he performed spontaneously at Festivals, frat parties, living rooms, bars and streets, without any advanced bookings.

In 2007, after discovering Yoga, Meditation and the spiritual philosophies of the East, a yearning for a deeper experience in life led him to the Motherland of India. As he traveled the ancient land interacting with the people, music began to come to him in a much different way.

In the winter of 2008, after trekking the Himalayas a vision of an empowered Humanity came to Daniel as he was writing the lyrics of “Brave New World.” From that day forth, a plan was set into action and the invaluable partnership with the Mai Segev was born.

In 2009, they brought the music and message to Mumbai, began working with local musicians and performed at colleges, major clubs and festivals (i.e. Blue Frog, Khala Goda, celebrate Bandra), as well as intertwining with various spiritual paths and facilitating workshops for the “so-called” slum areas (i.e. Dharavi).

The recording of “Brave New World – The Time is NOW!” album began with the intention of collaborating with a different producer and unique set of culturally diverse musicians for each track. These recordings led them to remarkable personal and business interactions throughout India to Israel, Egypt, Germany, USA and back to India.

The unique multi-genre journey “Brave New World – The Time is NOW!” has grown beyond the album into the Brave New World Empowerment Festival and currently, Full Moon Rising is performing in various cities around the world.

Lyrics

High

Written By: Daniel Tyler Pohnke

HIGH

Early One Morning
I woke up snoring
With a bird singing wisdom to me
The sun was rising
And the river was winding
And I was just happy to be

My Friends came over
To see if I was Sober
Cause the Booze Been killing sleep
With the Biggest Smile
A sparkle in my eye
I knew today that I was free!!

Cause I realised
A blessed way to get high
It's when I
Go Deep Inside
and let all the thoughts subside
And then the grey clouds of the mind
Open up to the colors of divine
And I find
A universe inside

Each and everyday
I walk lightly
Because there is life underneath my feet
Now it's hard to believe
But the stones they speak
Of a world which we can't see

The blessed Earth
replenishes it's worth
To quench the hunger and the thirst in me
And we walk around
With our bottled frowns
thinking...God how could you do it to me??

Cause I realized
A blessed way to get high
It's when I
Go Deep Inside
and let all the thoughts subside
And then the grey cloud of the mind
Open up to the colors of divine
And I find
I'm one with everything
Even the planets moons and sun's
and
THATS ALL I NEED TO GET HIGH

"We are the change we seek in the world, boys and girls, brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers all across the globe, repair your own mind for the sake of earthkind, realize inner compassion, Peace, LOVE, you have to look deep inside to find the greatest gift in life. THE TIME IS NOW!"

Now, watch what you say
cause the plants they play
In the words echoing in the breeze
With a healthy mind
and a healthy speech
We can power the world to peace

So, when the day starts
and when the days over
give yourself time to be
just close your eyes
and observe your mind
and let go of the possibilities

Cause I realized
A blessed way to get high
It's when I
Go Deep Inside
and let all the thoughts subside
And then the grey cloud of the mind
Open up to the colors of divine
And I smile
cause underneath all this
There's only joy, love and bliss
and
THATS ALL I NEED TO GET HIGH

Brave New World

Brave New World

Let's Step Our Feet
On solid ground
Fall away,
our fears and doubts

Everyday
Yeah we see
Is a brand new
opportunity

So when it looks like
nothings right
look again
check your sight

Cause in our reach
Is an open flight
Into a world
Which we design
and nows the time.....

ch.
So, Come on Angels
With Open Eyes
There's a brave new world
In the Rising Tide
So make up your mind
and we Better Believe
We Can CHANGE!

Because I know
Deep inside us
There's a child
Screaming loud!!!

I WANT THE TRUTH
HERE AND NOW
AND I WONT LEAVE
UNTIL we LET IT OUT

ch.
So, Come on Angels
With Open Eyes
There's a brave new world
In the Rising Tide
So make up your mind
and we Better Believe
We Can CHANGE!

The Train is coming
Will we lay down
and fall victim
to fear and doubt

With Wide Open Hearts
Let's live out loud
humanity is the target now

Come on Angels
With Open Eyes
The Time is Now

Make up your mind
The Time is Now

ch.
So, Come on Angels
With Open Eyes
There's a brave new world
In the Rising Tide
So make up your mind
and we Better Believe
and we better believe
We are the CHANGE!

Walking Through

Written By: Daniel Tyler Pohnke

Walking Through

Step Right Up
Walk On Through
Everything is Growing
Changing Flowing
Becoming New
But We Go On
Thinking LIfe Is This Way Or That Way
oh oh Only A Fool

Will Hold On To
This Life Thinking
They Are The Captain
And the World is the Crew
Damn Shame on You
In This Time You'll See
It's All Moving
In and out of focus
The view is constantly
Changing right there in front of you
So What to DO?

I'm Gonna Walk Through These Changes
Yeah Yeah
Well I know I see It
I'm Gonna Walk Through These Changes

Until I see
What's staring right there
in front of me
Why Don't you tell me
How will you grow?

A wise man said
Get out of your head
Your dancing around in your mind
Like the living dead
It's all been said
You were born with it
The Freedom to live in this world
With a sense of cool
Cause it's all going to move
From me to you
Life is nothing but a temporary
Reason to GROOVE!!

I'm Gonna Walk Through These Changes
Yeah Yeah
Well I know I see It
I'm Gonna Walk Through These Changes

KEEP ON WALKING

Walk through These Change
