Biography

Moss' earliest known project was playing violin in the Montreal alt-rock band Fidget, which she joined in 1995 and left in 1997.[1] She plays regularly in local Arabic and Balkan music ensembles. In addition, she has toured with the Geraldine Fibbers, and was production coordinator for the Montreal film collective Automatic Vaudeville, to which she also contributed music and acting to numerous productions.

She began playing the violin when she was five. She is also known to create illuminated boxes, metal flowers and figurines, wristbands, and soundtracks for film.[2]

Moss is part owner of Local 23, a vintage clothing and curiosities shop in the Mile End district. On August 5, 2009, Moss gave birth to her and Silver Mt. Zion bandmate Efrim Menuck's baby boy, Ezra Steamtrain Moss Menuck.[3]
