Roma di Luna

Roma di Luna is a 6-piece soulful folk-rock band from Minneapolis, led by singer-songwriter Channy Moon Casselle, and her husband, Alexei. They have emerged quickly as one of The Twin Cities’ most dynamic and exciting bands, known for powerful live performances and songs that deeply move. In September 2010, they celebrated the release of their 3rd full-length record, Then The Morning Came, named “...the most anticipated local release of the fall” by Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The full band comprises an all-star lineup - Channy sings on both Atmosphere’s When Life Gives You Lemons... and Gayngs' Relayted albums, as well as many other smaller projects; guitarist and singer Alexei Moon Casselle is also a MPLS hip hop icon as MC Crescent Moon, for Kill the Vultures, Odd Jobs and as hype-man for Eyedea & Abilities and Atmosphere. Bassist James Everest is a veteran from several bands including Lateduster, Neotropic, Vicious Vicious and The Sensational Joint Chiefs. Electric guitarist Ben Durrant also runs his own Crazy Beast studio, (Andrew Bird, Dosh) where Roma di Luna has recorded all 5 of their records. Drummer Ryan Lovan also plays with acclaimed locals Minor Kingdom & Brad Senne, as well as previous stints with Haley Bonar, Lifestyle of Wigs, and Mandrew. With a sound that is constantly evolving, incorporating an ever-widening palette of styles and sensibilities, Roma di Luna’s trademark is the emotional, commanding force of Channy’s voice and lyrics - drawing listeners in to a personal, immediate place, unafraid to lay bare her passions and struggles.
