Zion Memorial Orchestra e Black Ox Orkestar, e per le sue collaborazioni con Carla Bozulich (Official) Evangelista e il compianto Vic Chesnutt, Jessica Moss giunge con "Pools of Light" al suo primo disco solista, per la mitica Constellation Records.

Dicono di lei:
WIRE - (recensione sul numero di luglio)
"There is a fine line between the contemporary and the ancient in the fusion here of capitalist horror with klezmer traditions: both are tragic, mournful, wistful approaches and, on occasion, revolutionary, or at least resistant...This is a deep but balanced record, elegant in its melancholia and experimental...a multi-layered post-devastation elegy for a broken humanity."
UNCUT - review (June issue)
"Moss works a far more thoughtful, nuanced seam...The four parts of "Entire Populations" on Pools Of Light her second solo release...build from klezmer-influenced melodic turns through accreting vocal chants, shuddering tremolo and bedridden drones; "Glaciers" is mournfully slow."
"Rejoice as another member Thee Silver Mt. Zion releases a solo record in the spirit of terror and joy. This is one intense record." - Norman 9/10
"A powerful solo effort…visceral and sometimes raw…in her hands, the violin becomes a bountiful source of adventurous possibilities. Though she's clearly proven herself to be an invaluable team member in other projects, Pools Of Light makes the strongest of all possible cases for Moss's credibility as a solo artist." - Textura
"A despairing but cathartic experience…ambitious, expansive and dynamic. After receiving her musical gifts in the context of collaborative projects for so long, listeners should jump on this opportunity to hear her solo work." - Exclaim 8/10
