Sophie Moleta is a singer, songwriter, composer and teacher with an intimate singing style. She is best known for her piano backed vocals in what can be described as 'folk pop', but has a wide range of recorded music with dance and house music, electronic ambient, laid back jazz and other styles. The music is personal, generally sparse but always with seductive beautiful vocals. Moleta was born in Wellington New Zealand, but grew up in Perth Western Australia. Her non-classical music career started with a local Perth punk band (The Brautigans) where she was backup vocalist and drummer.
