Praise for OPIUM MOON:


"It's a rare pleasure to find music that gives me pause, slows me down from the daily deluge and gives me a moment to think. That's exactly what happened when I first heard "Caravan" from Opium Moon's self-titled, debut album. This music with violin, santur (a hammered dulcimer,) ancient percussion and bass is spacious and timeless." - Bob Boilen,  NPR Music 

"Descriptors like enchanting, elegant and hypnotic just don’t seem to do justice to Be Why Music’s recent self-titled release of Opium Moon. It is indeed enchanting, elegant and hypnotic, but it’s more. Surely, this is the music drunk bees must hear lolling inside a flower, captives to the warm summer sun and soothing breeze surrounded and infused by drugging fragrance. Finding your inner drunk bee is no further than a listen to this extraordinary CD." - World Music Central 

"It’s been quite some time since a thoroughly enticing, alluring and totally engaging album has come my way.  Throw yourself into the spirit of Opium Moom and you’ll be lifted by spirit in every imaginable way!"   - Lloyd Barde, Common Ground

"Enchanting music that sounds contemporary but has ancient roots...powerful...aches with feeling."  

- Tom Schnabel, KCRW Rhythm Planet


"Opium Moon‘s debut album is the soundtrack to an exotic, hazy, languorous dream, a sensual/spiritual trip into the mystic."

- Steve Hochman, KPCC

"One of the most astonishing, deep & soulful music experiences in recent memory."  - KCET

"Opium Moon produces a sound that’s biblical yet carnal...creating a sound like something born from the underlying forces of sensuality." - Malibu Arts Journal 


"Opium Moon’s debut album is a sublime and sensual brew of strings, percussion and bass that transports the listener to a musically soulful Shangri-La.” – Victoria Looseleaf, ArtNowLA 


"Fluid and hypnotic..."  - Santa Monica Argonaut
