Belinda Moody is a Victorian College of the Arts graduate and passionate jazz bassist and composer who has gained much international experience living at home and abroad over the past 20 years. Those home bases have included Melbourne, Amsterdam, Singapore and since 2003, Tokyo.
This has afforded her the opportunity to perform with many extraordinary musicians including: Alan Lee, Jex Saarelaht, Luluk Purwanto and Rene Van Helsdingen, Han Bennik, Tobias Delius, Jeremy Monteiro, Terumasa Hino, James Moody, Ernie Watts, Carmen Bradford and Christine Sullivan.
In 1998 upon her return to Melbourne she initiated her own band which recorded and toured Australia with the generous support of the Commonwealth Government. In 2001 Belinda led another original project, making a recording for Oxfam Community Aid Abroad, inspired by the landscapes of Central Australia.
It featured some of Melbourne's finest talent in Ronny Ferella, Peter Jones, Julien Wilson, Nadje Noordhuis and Michelle Nicolle. Last settled in Japan,(2003) Belinda made new connections with some of the finest musicians in the country while still maintaining an international agenda. Regular trips to Thailand to perform with the Jeremy Monteiro Trio and special guests continue as do recordings with the trio.
"Epic Whispers" is a new project led by Belinda Moody, joining the sympathetic vibration of strings, wood and voices, the harmony of ideas and emotions, the charm of telling tales. A rhythm section, string quartet and voices weave their way through a set of arrangements and compositions by Belinda Moody and Steve Smith.
