About the musicians:

M.O.E (Moana Tela) is a singer-songwriter from American Samoa located in the South Pacific Ocean. M.O.E stands for Music Over Everything. The acronym was inspired by her love of diverse music. While visiting her mother’s island of Fiji, she helped shape her outlook on music in a significant way. She realized the power of great energy expressed through music and was always prepared to perform. Although it was traditional to listen to island jams, with reggae being the most popular sound. M.O.E was more interested in American music in the genres of hip-hop, pop, rap, R&B, and Rock.

Hearkening back to the nostalgic 90s when R&B/Hip Hop music was as versatile as its artists, Nubia Emmon reminds us of that groundbreaking and exhilarating time period. She brings the cool laid back swag of an Aaliyah, the energetic spontaneity of Left Eye’s rap and her own unique artistry to the music scene. She can move easily between performing danceable club tracks to a slow ballad such as “At Last” by Etta James. As unassuming as she is, Nubia will you tell you she is your everyday home girl, but make no mistake about it, this R&B Singer/Rapper Nubia Emmon is the total package. From the “Capital of Live Music” – Austin, Texas she comes from a family of artists including a distant cousin, none other than The Queen of Gospel, Mahalia Jackson. Realizing what it takes: sacrifice and hard work, whether she is working in the studio, at shows, in the community or with other artists, Nubia’s dream is to become a world class performer. Her fans seem to believe this too as she has been voted #1 by Austin listeners (Best Radio R&B Artist, Best Female Radio Song and Best Female R&B Live).
