Moonbaby is debut studio album by American singer and songwriter Siobhan Magnus. The album was released on January 1, 2012.[1]

Background[edit]

After the end of the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2010, Magnus returned to her alternative rock band Lunar Valve, and recorded a 3-track EP which was released in February 2011.

The album was originally announced for release on October 31, 2011, but was postponed after interest from a major label. The album was eventually released on Snotface Records, after being recorded with Pacific International Music, and was produced by Michael Flanders, who also co-wrote five of the album's songs.

1,000 pre-release signed copies were made available through her official website in December 2011.[2] Six song teasers were released on December 5, 2011 to SoundCloud.[3]

The art and packaging were designed by Magnus and Tony Raine. The art on the CD is of the lunar phase.
