This longtime vet remains one of the Southland's best-kept musical secrets.'--LOS ANGELES WEEKLY 'Zola Moon's pretty damn scary; she can belt 'em out like nobody's bidness.

She can be hurt by the end of a relationship or by economic hardship or by the state of the world, but she never gives in to self pity or despair; she's too tough, gutsy and hip for that. She keeps bouncing back and fighting back, because that's her nature; her voice won't be stilled.
