Moore began performing in 1974, playing drums for a singing nun (Sister Janet Mead) in Adelaide. The Moodists went to the UK in 1983 on an independent record deal, touring extensively in Europe and the USA. In 1986, singer Dave Graney decided to pursue a solo career and, with Moore as his virtual music director, formed The Coral Snakes before returning to Australia around 1990. In the following five or six years they worked with Universal Records, for whom they recorded four albums, then continued to forge ahead independently with Dave Graney & the mistLY.

She also plays drums as part of Harry Howard and the NDE and Jane Dust and the Giant Hoopoes and plays vibes with the Ukeladies.

Moore has made about 30 albums and many EPs. Other than the drums, she sings and plays the vibraphone and keyboards. She works in the studio to make her own CDs and remix the work of other artists. She released her first solo album The Third Woman in 2001. Working with Dave Graney, Moore co-wrote the soundtrack to the Tony Martin film Bad Eggs.

Other film soundtrack work has been done for various ABC documentaries as well as the short film "ray" by Tony Mahony and the feature JOHNNY GHOST (Donna McRae 2012) .
