"Spirit Level ... plein de charme, comme les bulles du champagne, comme une invitation joyeuse à garder un certain niveau spirituel(traduction fausse mais je l'aime bien).Grand merci..." Sylvie Clidière, Journaliste, Auteur.

 

"I love the super-high notes, I wonder if she's establishing a world record. Very sweet sounds. I'm a sucker for sad-making sweet songs... I really enjoyed the humor in Pear-shaped Blues and in Le Plaisir de Rien Dire. And it's wonderful to hear how comfortably she sings in French. My absolute favorite in the whole CD is Madame Rossignol, simple but not-so-simple . . . its prosody is quite sophisticated. And those high high notes, ohmigod!" Pedro de Alcantara, teacher, musician, author, founder of Integrated Practice.

 

Songstress, raconteur and people-watcher Joce Moen sings with range and conviction. Her genre-defying songs carry vivid impressions of encounters with friends, lovers, garbage trucks and more. Some are in French and all thrum with musicality and the joie de vivre of cabaret. She recorded her first album La Rouge Qui Bouge in 2006 in Paris, where she lived for several years. In 2013 she released her solo album Spirit Level, launching it at Foundry 616 in Sydney.

 

Now living in the Blue Mountains with her young family, Moen has re-established herself in Australia playing venues such as the Clarendon, Hotel Blue and the Paragon (Katoomba), The Front (Canberra), The Studio (Melbourne), and The Alley Cat (Hobart). Her duo Runcible Spoon performs original songs about childhood and parenthood, and recently released their self-titled debut album. Threepenny Moon, her new cabaret duo, perform classics in French, English and German, jazz standards and originals. She has also recently founded VOILA! Blue Mountains French Choir.
