Moby has been making music since he was nine years old. He grew up playing classical music but after college became a fixture in the late 80s New York house and hip-hop scenes. He released his first single, 'go' in 1991 (listed as one of rolling stones best records of all time), and has been making albums ever since. His own records have sold over 20,000,000 copies worldwide, and he's also produced and remixed scores of other artists. Moby works closely with a variety of different charities, including the Humane Society, Mercy for Animals, and the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, and in 2007 he launched 'mobygratis', which provides free music for independent film makers. He owns and runs Little Pine, an organic vegan restaurant in Silver Lake, California. 100% of Little Pine's proceeds go to animal welfare organizations.
