    Hudson Moore


    In a world where tapping your finger summons any kind of music you’d want to hear, it takes a lot for
    a new artist to capture the public’s attention. It takes a compelling voice, impressive musical chops
    and songs that are both entertaining and insightful. It also helps to have a passion for making music
    that leaps from the speakers, grabs the listener by the ears and settles in their heart. Hudson Moore
    is that caliber of artist.

    Moore is quickly earning fans with his engaging, self-assured voice and his awe-inducing musical
    skills. His new single, “Some Are,” off GETAWAY has people scratching their heads in disbelief when
    they see the video because each camera shot reveals Moore’s musical dexterity as he plays EVERY
    instrument in the video (drums, bass, acoustic and electric guitar, 6 string banjo, keys and harmony
    “There are so many artists competing for the public’s attention these days and I feel that being a
    multi-instrumentalist helps set me apart,” says Moore, whose reputation as a great live performer has
    earned him opening slots for ZZ Top, Alan Jackson, Pat Green, Rascal Flatts and Gary Clark Jr. “I
    write or co-write all my own songs and do the vast majority of guitar work and musical overdubs on
    my albums (for better or for worse) so when you listen to my record you aren’t hearing a hired
    gunslinger, you’re actually hearing me” he explains. Moore has a creative hand in everything he does
    from the production of his albums to the arrangements, the mix you hear, and the videos you see.
    For Moore, making music is as natural as breathing and it’s a passion that began when he was just a
    child. “I’m a musician first and foremost. I started playing the guitar and drums around 10 years old,
    then fell into singing and writing songs when I was about 16,” he says. Some of my earliest musical
    influences were guys like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, and Vince Gill. I remember when I was 6 years
    old, my dad took us to see Tim McGraw live in Dallas and Kenny Chesney opened the show. We had
    been wearing out Tim's album, "Everywhere" that whole year. My brothers and I knew every word to
    every song. I'll never forget the feeling of watching Tim take control of the crowd like that. It was a
    really powerful moment for me. I didn't realize then that one day I'd be performing on stage as well,
    but I think that was when the seed was planted for me.
    As a listener, I've always been equally drawn to the music, hooks and melodies as I have the lyrics.
    Growing up listening to guys like Keith Urban and Vince Gill, I noticed the guitar was always at the
    forefront of their songs. That really stuck with me and I think a lot of that sound has made its way into
    my music.”
    Moore has expanded on the musical foundation provided by his heroes and forged his own distinct
    sound teaming with youthful energy and anchored by memorable melodies and relatable lyrics. And
    though he has the musical skill and vocal talent to succeed in any genre, there was never any doubt
    he’d call Country Music his home. “Honestly the fans bring it home for me,” says Moore.
    "Country music fans are some of the most passionate and loyal fans in the world. When I play for
    them, I feel like I'm playing for my friends and family. Like most people, I enjoy all different types of
    music: rock, pop, blues, r&b - but country music is at the root of it all for me. It's at the core of who I
    am as an artist and why I got into music to begin with. “
    Moore’s talent and buoyant personality have earned him a broad and enthusiastic fan base. His debut
    album, “Fireworks,” spawned the hit single of the same title, “Fireworks,” which soared to No. 1 on the
    Texas Music chart and held that spot for two weeks. His songs have appeared in TV and films,

    including the 2013 western film “Sweetwater” starring Ed Harris, January Jones and Jason Aldean,
    which featured Moore’s “Cold Grey Light of Dawn” over the closing credits. “It was really fun to have
    a song featured in a film at Sundance. Especially being a western. I’ve always been a huge fan of
    Western films” he says. “We went up there and watched it on the big screen at the premiere and
    walked the red carpet and everything. It was really exciting.”
    Moore has also developed a reputation as a strong live performer and has opened for many of his
    musical heroes as well as headlining his own shows in notable venues such as Billy Bob’s Texas, the
    world’s largest honky tonk and Gruene Hall. “Texas crowds aren’t always the easiest crowds to win
    over because they have so much great music to choose from,” he admits. “It’s a great place to cut
    your teeth as an artist. There are so many great cities and venues to play in Texas. If you can win
    over Texas crowds, it’ll really help build your confidence as a performer.”
    With the release of GETAWAY, Moore continues to solidify his reputation as one of country’s most
    gifted young artists. He co-produced his new set with Dwight A. Baker, an Austin-based
    songwriter/producer who has worked with Kelly Clarkson, Brandi Carlile, Bob Schneider, Blue
    October, Alpha Rev among others. “We really hit it off,” Moore says with a grin. “I told him I had a
    clear vision of how I wanted my record to sound and he said, ‘Man, I just want to help get your vision
    across and let you be you.’ He was really supportive and it was just a perfect fit. I have a specific
    sound I was going for and Dwight encouraged me to be me rather than steer me in a direction that I
    didn’t want to go. I was able to lead the ship and he was there to support me and push me to give my
    best performance.”
    The lead single, “Some Are,” showcases Moore’s potent skills as a musician as well as his rich,
    smooth vocals. “It’s a feel good song, that’s nostalgic at the same time” says Moore. “It’s about the
    special people you encounter in life that managed to drive you crazy, make you open up that door
    and go the extra mile to get that smile or that kiss”.
    Another highlight on the new project is “Sand in the Bed.” “It’s one of my favorite songs on the
    record,” he says of the lilting, romantic tune he penned with J.T. Hodges and Andrew Petroff. “I had
    the title and texted it out to the guys. Immediately they both said, we’ve got to write this!’ Everyone’s
    wheels were spinning and at the end of the session, we had a full work tape of the song. It’s a sexy,
    honeymoon song that reflects on the time you have with that special person. It’s hopefully a song that
    will take people to that place when they listen to it. I’m really happy with the way it turned out”.
    Moore’s excitement for making music is contagious and whether on stage or off, there’s a simmering
    energy that makes a conversation with him a delight and a concert so galvanizing that it’s experience
    not to be missed. His passion fuels everything he does and it leaves a lasting impression on those
    who cross his path. “Life’s too short to be doing something you’re not passionate about. I’m chasing
    my dream and doing what I love and I hope that I’ll be able to inspire others to do what they love as
    well,” he says. My hope is that my music will help people get through that hard time in their life, or be
    that song they put on when they’re falling in love or hanging out with friends on a Friday night. In
    some a way, I want to be a small part of the soundtracks of peoples lives.”

At the young age of two Kyle sang along to George Strait songs, and at four years old he picked up a toy guitar and started singing Alan Jackson and Kenny Chesney songs. Music has been an essential part of his childhood with his parents love for music and listening to it while growing up. He started showing interest at the age of 10, when he began learning to play the guitar, but never became serious until about 13 years old. He hasn't put the guitar down since then.

    Kyle has become a big fan of Thomas Rhett, Brett Eldridge, Brantley Gilbert, Jason Aldean, Sam Hunt and many others. These country artists influence Kyle's music.

    After many years of writing music, Kyle decided to record a song at Full Moon Studios in Watkinsville, GA. This song became Kyle's first single, better known as "Small Town Rivalry." The song helped spread his name throughout the Jefferson community and Jackson County.

    Soon after, Kyle released two more singles. First was the track "Let It Burn," and to follow up was "The Weekend." Both songs were responded to very well.

    After the release of "The Weekend," Kyle submitted the song to Atlanta's 94.9 The Bull's Backyard Country Station. The song place #1 for four weeks straight earning the most votes, and stayed in the top 5 for a total of 10 weeks. At the end of 2016, the song made the radio station's list for best song of 2016 and played once again.

    Kyle has now released his first EP, "Small Town Dreaming' Big." The EP is made up of six songs, including a remastered version of "Let it Burn" and "The Weekend." The album charted at 108 on iTunes Top 200 Country Albums. Kyle is excited to see where this album can take him and is looking forward to his next project.
