Vocalist Miss Adra Boo and DJ/Producer/Emcee Action J make up the Seattle-based, electro-soul duo Fly Moon Royalty. Layering a scrumptious bed of futuristic R&B&Funk&Soul around Miss Boo’s sizzling, siren-like vocals, the two have cemented themselves as bona fide bad-asses in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle Magazine named the electric pair as one of the city’s Best New Bands, and City Arts Magazine voted them Best Local Band in 2012.
They debuted at #5 on KEXP’s R&B charts, and the band has supported the likes of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Macklemore, Slum Village, Robert Glasper, Nneka, and Allen Stone.
While their backgrounds couldn’t be more different, the musical partnership of Fly Moon Royalty came about naturally. Often likened sonically to Janelle Monae, vocalist Adra Boo’s roots are planted firmly in musical theater. Action J – a Grand Rapids, MI local and newcomer to Seattle – threw himself into music straight out of high school and has become a self-taught all-round MC/DJ/producer.
Drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as J.Dilla and Bjork, to Stevie Wonder and Betty Davis, Fly Moon Royalty have two releases: 2014’s EP Unfinished Business and 2016’s full length, Delicious Trouble.
