Release[edit]

Announcement from her official site:

Sunday, 16 July 2006

"In the last few days Moya has completed the recording and mixing of her new album entitled Signature. Release is planned in Europe for late September but check back here for release dates in specific places. We can now reveal the track listing for the album (and we anticipate that some of the titles will give rise to discussion!)"

Snip from her official website on 'Signature'

Signature looks back over a life less ordinary and portrays Moya's experiences through a collection of twelve superb tracks. Musically sharp and finely tuned, the album cleverly treads a fine line between the contemporary and the traditional while Moya emerges as a skilled songwriter with a global ear. In true Irish tradition, many of the songs have that bittersweet flavour - so this is no rose-tinted retrospective. Rather, Signature is a series of snapshots of Moya’s life – each chosen moment launches a lyrical reflection - which, when all woven together, produce a tapestry of contrasting colours and emotions.
