OzMoses is an acoustic trio playing repertoire packed with an eclectic range of songs drawn from Canadiana, blues, pop, country, gospel and folk genres. The members take turns at singing lead and their performances feature rich three-part harmonies, creative arrangements and well-defined instrumentation.
Paul Winfield migrated from Ontario in 1971 and began working for CN Rail in Kamloops, fostering his love for train songs. He plays rhythm and lead guitars in the band. Paul co-founded OzMoses in 2011.
Vancouver Island native Patty Castle comes from a Celtic folk-rock background. She played bass and flutes in the Victoria bands High Tide Trio and Stone Whistle and folk band Chattering Class. To OzMoses, she brings stand-up bass and flute.
Vivian Sinclair grew up in Alberta in a musical family. She played mandolin in a bluegrass band and started playing fiddle when she moved to Victoria in 1990. Her fiddle completes the OzMoses sound.
Since 2013 OzMoses has been performing at local coffeehouses, restaurants and folk clubs: Wild Coffee, Gorgeous Coffee, Spiral Café, The Oaks Restaurant, The Nest, Victoria Folk Music Society, Sooke Folk Club, as well as fundraisers, benefits and celebrations: Victoria Recovery Day, Wounded Warriors and Canada Day at Fort Rodd Hill.
