Moira Smiley, Musical Polyglot

Apr 2, 2015

Vocalist Moira Smiley balances a dizzying list of simultaneous projects: her own group VOCO; the indie rock band tUnE-yArDs; The Lomax Project; Irish supergroup Solas; and work with Billy Childs.

But that's only part of her CV. TED presentations, symphonic performances, festival curation, and musical compositions for PBS and the BBC begin to fill out the picture of this musical powerhouse.
