More information

Hall was born in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City, the son of Elizabeth McBride (née Warner), a medical secretary, and James Frederick Hall, a chemistry professor. He was raised by his mother in Darien, Connecticut.



According to Hall, his middle name and the nickname "Moby" were given to him by his parents because of an ancestral relationship to Moby Dick author Herman Melville: "The basis for Richard Melville Hall—and for Moby—is that supposedly Herman Melville was my great-great-great-granduncle."

He has released music under the names "Voodoo Child", "Schaumgummi", and as a member of the bands Vatican Commandos, AWOL, Caeli Seoul, and Gin Train.
