About Moonburn…

“With a purity and clarity that make your heart melt,” Clay Crosby sings songs introduced by 1930s movie crooners such as Bing Crosby, Dick Powell, and Fred Astaire. MOONBURN’s innovative arrangements for voice, piano and cello result in fresh interpretations of romantic standards (Easy to Love, Let’s Face the Music and Dance, My Ideal) and forgotten gems.

Track Listing

Praise for Moonburn…

  • “Clay Crosby is a true original – a haunting voice, great taste in songs, and that extra touch of humor that makes this a wonderful album to listen to again and again.”

    — Andrea Marcovicci
  • “Crosby is a fine singer, with a slightly reedy voice and smooth delivery. He obviously loves the material he performs, imbuing it with sweet innocence … Maybe Crosby is a resurrected ’30s movie crooner!”

    — Show Music Magazine
  • “Crosby sounds as good as he looks. With a purity and clarity that makes your heart melt, as well as a giddy sense of innocence, Crosby brings his own sense of unaffected style to each song.”

    — The Weekly News, Miami
  • “He has one of those ‘radio’ tenor voices – suited perfectly to [his] material … it was perfection.”

    — Cabaret Hotline
  • “Clay Crosby has found a way to bring 60-year-old songs alive in a fresh way, and at the same time preserve the values and styles of the ’30s.”

    — Nightlife’s Entertainment
  • “The crooner with the cover boy looks, Clay Crosby, will undoubtedly melt your heart.”

    — LA WEEKLY
  • “Leaves you longing to hear more … Lem Jay Ignacio on piano evokes the ’30s with his lyrical playing style, and Ken Hashimoto on cello provides just the right touch of melancholia and drama.”

    — The Loop, Vancouver, Canada
  • “BEST BET”

    — Los Angeles Times
  • “Clay Crosby’s CD of the songs of the ’30s is a joy to hear. It’s a trip back to the time we all want to relive. Play one track, you’ll buy it and won’t want to turn it off.”

    — Stanley Donen (director of Singin’ in the Rain)
