Little Miss Moffatt 

Wild About Nature (independent)

littlemiss-review.jpg
Ashley Moffatt is biology’s gift to music, citing her main influence as the late painter Tom Thomson. A job with Parks Canada at Kejimkujik National Park keeps her close to nature. She writes what she knows, quoting passages from text with subtle revisions for rhyme’s sake. Don’t you wish you had the sea cucumber’s defense mechanism against predators, jettisoning your “digestive system quickly out your bum”? Moffatt used to sing about boys, then was in The Wilderbeats, developing a rapport with people, young or old, who like laughing while they learn. She fills an important role, relating the state of vulnerable creatures to humans caught in the urban buzzsaw.
