The astonishing and audacious Miss Adra Boo and funk-wizard DJ/Producer/Emcee Action J are set
to satisfy with sophomore album Delicious Trouble dropping April 22, 2016. The aptly tantalizing title
of Fly Moon Royalty’s long-awaited new full-length follow up their 2014 EP Unfinished Business and
shows how the Seattle-based electro-soul duo has been slaying loving audiences live. They then hit
the studio for layering a scrumptious bed of sound around Miss Boo’s sizzling- siren-like vocals, in
strong songs ready to seduce the world. 

The best to come in an oeuvre including the release of 2012’s Dimensions EP and their stunning,
self-titled debut LP in 2011, their recent work cemented Fly Moon Royalty as bad ass bona fides
within the Pacific Northwest. Seattle Magazine named the electric pair as one of the city’s Best New
Bands, and City Arts Magazine voted them as best the city’s 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 AdraBoo’s roots are planted
firmly in musical theater. “I started to step out and sing in high school - I got into theater, and
whenever there was a musical, I was in! I learned the ins and outs of the stage, and went on to
attend a theater training program, and then, through friends in the club scene, I started hosting.”
Enter second half of the duo, Action J - a Grand Rapids, MI local and newcomer to Seattle, the all-
round MC/DJ/producer threw himself into DJing straight after high school. “Ultimately, I just wanted
to make beats. I had no mentors or anyone at all that could teach me, so I bought myself an MPC
2000 and taught myself how to sample. It wasn't until I was taking a music program at the
community college that I discovered my love for the piano. Before that moment I didn't even know
what Middle C was on a piano.”

Drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as J.Dilla and Bjork, to Stevie Wonder and Betty Davis,
the duo quickly caught the attention of DeVon Manier, President of Seattle based indie Hip Hop label
Sportn’ Life Music Group. Together, the two entities partnered to re-release the debut album as a
joint effort, and currently have an ongoing management relationship with the band.
