Betty Moon is a Toronto-born composer, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and filmmaker.

She has recorded seven albums, including her current release "Pantomania" (2015). A former teen model and dancer, Betty Moon took the Toronto music scene by storm upon her arrival. Selling over 10,000 DIY records during high school was impressive to A&M/Universal who signed Betty Moon to a record deal launching her professional career as a recording artist and songwriter.

Since then, She has been nominated for four CASBY Awards including Best Album of the Year, Best Single of the Year, Best Video of the Year, and Best Artist of the Year. To date, Betty Moon has released seven records including her A&M Records self-titled debut, STIR, Doll Machine on EMI Music, Demon Flowers, Rollin' Revolution (Evolver), and Amourphous (Evolver).

"Amourphous", which Moon produced and which features the single, “Valentine,” was mixed by Grammy Award-winner Chris Lord-Alge. Moon’s music has been featured in a variety of television shows and films including Californication, Dexter, Bounty Hunters, Walking the Dead directed by Melanie Ansley, and Last Gasp starring Robert Patrick.

Moon released six records after her self-titled debut, including STIR, Doll Machine on EMI, Demon Flowers, Rollin' Revolution (Evolver), Amourphous (Evolver), and Pantomania (Evolver). In 2010, Moon relocated to Los Angeles and released “Rollin’ Revolution,” which garnered airplay on famed L.A. rock radio station KROQ. In 2013, Moon was a featured artist at the Sunset Strip Music Festival, sharing the stage with Marilyn Manson, Quiet Riot, Black Label Society, and The Offspring. She continues to be a regular performer at iconic venues such as The Roxy, Whisky a Go Go, and The Viper Room in Hollywood, California.

In 2015, Moon released her seventh album ”Pantomania," which debuted in the Top 10 on College Radio airplay charts and has seen its two singles "No Good" & newest single "Firehose" played on L.A.'s KLOS Radio.
