Bio.."Stately presence and crystalline delivery." ..-Boston Globe.. .. .."Lovely, strong voice." ..-Portland Press Herald, Portland, Maine.. .. .."Warm voice and easy natural lyricism. Moore's voice is attractively layered as she accompanies herself on tender fiddle, creating a sound that is at once warm and haunting." .. -Jim Lowe, Times Argus, Montpelier, VT .. .. .."Beautiful." .. -Tim Downy, WNCS The Point .. .. .. "Full and open, ethereal...seems to come from another world. There is an old world quality to her songs, with a big twist. She is the real thing, and the truth and artistry of her music can be felt". ..-Amy Trafford, Writer, Montpelier, VT .. .. ..Eliza Moore's unique sound stems from her diverse musical background. Rooted in the classical tradition, she discovered a passion for world music while collaborating with artists from around the globe. Her fascination with rearranging her melodies according to the instrumentation available creates a spontaneous and eclectic feel to her work. "Beauty in Mystery", Eliza's most recent album, (Produced by Deron Johnson, Los Angeles) is a quintessential example of this vibe, combining jazz, hip-hop, classical, electronica and other eclectic tid-bits... ..As a soloist, Eliza accompanies her voice with a weave of repeated rhythmic and melodic phrases which she pulls from her lap top, her violin, voice and Moog analog keyboard. This combination creates a tapestry of modern drum and bass crossed with lyrical early music polyphony. Main influences include: Palestrina, Bjork, Thom Yorke, Sigur Ros, J Dilla and Amon Tobin... ...... ..Myspace Editor.... ..Pimp MySpace..
