"CD Compilation Contest II"

Moses Child: This is Babylon
Moses is our 1st Place winner of our compilation CD Contest. The song 'This is Babylon' is a soulful, well-composed, well-performed tune. This song rolls around in your head for days and weeks, the lyrics are poignant and timely. His delivery is superb and his instrumentation is rich and full. We are proud to have met this man and to be exposed to his music.

Moses Child was born on Jan. 29th, 1972 in N.Y.C. and raised in the artsy district of Greenwich Village, Manhattan. As a child, he was always captivated by the sound of singing, both melodies and harmonies, and he started singing with his family almost before he could walk. By the time Moses Child was in high school, he was also playing piano, guitar, and flute, and he discovered that he loved writing music and performing it for friends and strangers in Central Park and the NYC subways.

By the end of high school, he had started to become obsessive about his songwriting and home recordings. This led him to pursue English, music production and advanced computer music at N.Y.U’s Gallatin division, and briefly at Montreal’s McGill Conservatory, studying ear-training, music history and theory.

At the age of 23, Moses Child took an audio engineering position at P.P.I. Recording Studios in Manhattan, and spent the next 3 years first as an engineer, and later as the studio’s main A/V engineer.
Then, at 26, Moses Child opened his own recording studio in Montreal with the help of his friends, family, and devoted clients. Since that time, Moses Child has spent his time recording numerous artists and bands records, singles and demos, and also pursued a career giving advice to these artists to help them with their projects and careers. He has been involved creatively with numerous artists, including Montreal’s “Triple Madness” brothers where he co-produced and co-wrote a number of the album’s tracks. He has also performed, recorded and produced two songs for the songwriter Frank Dalton (Karla Faye Tucker, and Funny Kisses.)

Now Moses Child is focusing his talent on writing and recording songs for his own upcoming CD release “Songs I Owe...” Look out for a full length CD release in the spring of 2006.

Gideon Moses Cohen’s performing pseudonym “Moses Child” first took shape in 1999 while recording a Frank Dalton song about Karla Faye Tucker, the first woman to be executed by the State of Texas, under then Governor George W. Bush. As it was a country-folk song, Cohen constructed a name based on his own, using his first and middle name, Gideon and Moses and then adding his mother’s maiden name, Child, creating the cowboy/street persona he felt was integral to the song. Some years later, before a performance at a Sudbury, Ontario music festival, organizers asked him if he’d shorten his name to Moses Child to fit on the concert posters! Thus the performer Moses Child was born.
Working with Triple Madness Productions, Moses Child, performed, co-wrote and co-produced the song So Many Girls which hit # 7 in the Seychelles in 2002. In between raising his children and continuing to both produce and record other artists, he did another song for Frank Dalton, No One's Little Girl and one of his own compositions, This is Babylon about the terrible aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The song won the 2006 Indie Artist Alliance Songwriter Contest, and garnered enthusiastic interest from Eagles keyboardist Don Felder. This prompted him to focus on getting a larger release finished, resulting in this long awaited CD...Ghosts & Angels.
