HELLO MUSIC AND MR MOON
For a while there was a company called HELLO MUSIC
They no longer exist but while they did they welcomed songs and reviewed them very promptly
Below is most of their very welcome response to the song MR MOON which can be heard at the foot of the page
As promised, here's your entry as Hello Music Song Of The Day. So far, this is just an internal contest showcasing the best music we've heard in the Hello
Music system, but I thought you might like to see it. We love your music and hope to bring you more opportunities.
In fact, we'd like to put "Mr. Moon" on our Delta Airlines radio station. Hello Music Director of Artist Relations, Heather (cc'd above) will be contacting
you with more details on that one.
I've also looped in Greg, our head of A&R, who wrote the description below. We're all fans.

– and you have a song that you’ll carry with you for quite a while. Meanwhile, there’s precious little information about her on the Internet, but “Mr.
Moon” has gotten some plays on Iain Anderson’s BBC Radio Scotland singer-songwriters program. Enough plays, in fact, that he’s nicknamed her simply
