was born and raised in New Orleans, relocating to California with her mother following her parents' divorce. Exposed to gospel early (her mother had once been active on the Southern church revival circuit), Moses
brought a little bit of that fervor to her own vocal style when she began singing professionally. Working with producer Pauli Pol, Moses
released a single, Be Your Girl
, on TVT Records late in 2003, following it with another, You'll Never Find (A Better Woman)
, early in 2004. A gifted songwriter with a sweet and sultry voice, Moses
mixed a light gospel touch with timely hip-hop-inflected neo-soul on her debut album, Complex Simplicity
, released in 2004, again on TVT Records.
