Moira Smiley
Summer Concert Series: Moira Smiley
City Hall Park

Singer/Composer Moira Smiley has toured the world and recorded with indie-pop favorites Tuneyards, performing with them on all the late-night TV shows (Kimmel, Colbert, Conan O’Brien, UK’s Jools Holland, etc.) and recently to re-open David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center in NYC with Chris Thile, Hilary Hahn, and Brad Mehldau. 

She began her singing career in Baroque and Medieval music, and as a folksinger has fronted the legendary Irish-American supergroup Solas. She continues to lead her own vocal collaborations as VOCO and The Voice is a Traveler, and as a composer, she’s premiered works alongside Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, and many others. Moira has been featured in TED conferences, on BBC Radio and TV, NPR, and live at countless venues from Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall to Walt Disney Concert Hall and Royal Festival Hall. She brings vivid, embodied singing to stages tiny and grand, atop glaciers or in cozy kitchens from Taiwan to Tasmania. 

Moira’s 2018 solo album, Unzip The Horizon, premiered at the prestigious Savannah Music Festival in 2018, and she published its companion choral Songbook in 2019. In February of 2021, she released her vocal album In Our Voices, featuring international VOCO collaborators. A new album of folksongs with string quartet The Rhizome Project will be released in 2024.
