The Wandering Cellist (aka Luna Skye) started playing and became obsessed with the cello at age 16. She would fuse this new-found obsession with the passion she had developed years earlier for heavy metal music. This has defined this unorthodox journey she’s taken.
In the years that followed, she got some classical training, started playing in rock bands and began composing her own music – playing in the subways as part of Music Under New York, and freelancing in New York City. She’s traveled the US and Canada playing for Steampunk, Sci-Fi & Gaming Conventions and has released multiple albums, available at http://celloluna.bandcamp.com
Her music fuses her classical training with her love of heavy metal, fantasy, film & folk music. Building layers of cello on top of each other, she creates a world simultaneously dark, beautiful, wonderful, fantastic & breathtaking.
“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
