Born Moana Tela in American Samoa located in the South Pacific Ocean. M.O.E which stands for Music Over Everything 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 she was more interested in American Music.
She was influenced mostly by Hip-hop, Pop, Rap, RnB and Rock although Reggae was the most popular sound on the Islands. The vibe was always the same, very chill happy melodies that make you feel deep sensations.
