Both in life and music, Moira walks a line of stubborn determination and perpetual adaptation. Though she is incurably independent, her sound exposes her many influences. From Stevie Wonder and Ella Fitzgerald to Blake Mills, Sigur Ros, and Solange. Most recently, she has had the pleasure of performing with and learning from Wyclef Jean. Her jazz-infused, neo soul songs are the product of this varied musical education. As a songwriter, Moira finds her confidence in self-deprecation and biting honesty. Her lyrics are loose-lipped explorations into the uncomfortable. She frequently exposes secrets in her songs that would otherwise be guarded by sobriety. Her constant need to unsettle is carried through her artistry, and, intentional or not, she never gives the same performance twice.
