Named one of Rolling Stone's "10 New Country Artists You Need to Know”, the multi-instrumentalist, artist and songwriter from Fort Worth, TX is quickly building a loyal fan base across the country with his engaging, self-assured voice and his awe-inducing musical skills. As an independent artist, Moore has amassed over 27 MILLION views on Youtube, over 12 MILLION streams on Spotify and earned hundreds of thousands of passionate followers on social media - all without the support from a major label. His personal connection to his fans and the passion and energy Moore puts into his music are at the core of his success.
Moore, who has reputation as a great live performer, has earned opening slots for ZZ Top, Alan Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Eli Young Band, Chris Young, Hunter Hayes, Jake Owen, Gary Clark Jr., Martina McBride among others - and has performed at the infamous Austin City Limits Festival, SXSW, CMA Fest and Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic.
A passionate, self-tough musician, Moore played over 11 instruments on his critically-acclaimed 2016 album, “Getaway”, including acoustic and electric guitars, bass, piano, keys, mandolin, 6-string banjo, high-string guitar, drums, and programming. Rolling Stone describes Moore as a “talented multi-threat” and reviewed his album (“Getaway”) as “one of those road-trip radio sweet spots where two great stations - in this case, modern country and Top 40 Pop weave in and out to create a unique sonic hybrid”.
That album (Getaway) took his career to new heights, gaining him thousands of new fans and earning support from national radio station Sirius XM the Highway, and featured placements on Spotify's popular “Wild Country” and “New Boots” playlists as well as Youtube Music's "Country Hotlist". Popular tracks from that album include "Sand in the Bed", "Some Are", "Might As Well" and "Summertime Queen", which have accumulated over 16 million streams between Spotify and Youtube.
Moore has also caught the attention of national publications such as Fender, CMT, AXS.com, Taste of Country, SouthernLiving.com, Hollywood Life, Nash Country Daily, The Boot.com. His music video for "Some Are", where Moore played every instrument, shot to the Top 10 on the CMT Music "12 Pack Countdown".
Moore's music has been featured in TV, films, including a national Pandora commercial ("Midnight Kiss") the Sundance Film Festival Western "Sweetwater" (starring Jason Aldean, January Jones and Ed Harris - "Cold Grey Light of Dawn") and multiple songs featured in the hit Netflix series "The Ranch" ("Sand in the Bed, "Getaway" and "Where City Lights Don't Shine").
For Moore, making music is as natural as breathing and it’s a passion that began when he was just a child. “I’ve loved music as long as I can remember. As a kid, we always had music playing around the house. My dad would listen to country artists/songwriters like Tim McGraw, George Strait, Vince Gill, and John Denver and my mom would listen to Motown, funk and pop artists like Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, James Brown and Whitney Houston, so I had all styles of music influence me at an early age." A self-taught musician, Moore picked up both the guitar and drums around 11 years old. "One Christmas my parents bought me a Fender Stratocaster electric guitar and a drum set for my older brother -- I ended up falling in love with both instruments and the journey has never stopped. My dad taught me a few chords to start and I just ran with it from there. Around that same time, I started listening to John Mayer and Keith Urban who quickly became my favorite artists. Those guys are so authentic and keep musicianship at the core of what they do. They both still have a huge impact on my music to this day."
A musician first and foremost, Moore has created original music compositions since he was 11 years old. "I was never in a band growing up - but I had an old Roland 24 track mixer. I would spend hours in this old guest bedroom-converted music studio layering on different instruments on top of each other: drums, bass, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin to create these instrumental songs. It wasn't until about 4-5 years later that I started writing my own lyrics and started singing. I sort of fell into singing by default. I think having that musical foundation has really helped me as an artist/songwriter when it comes to crafting hooks, building tracks and arrangements and producing in the studio."
Moore has expanded on the musical foundation provided by his heroes and forged his own distinct sound teeming 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. “The fans bring it home for me,” says Moore. "Country music fans are the most passionate and loyal fans in the world. When I play for them, I feel like I'm playing for family. Like most people, I enjoy all different types of music... pop, rock, r&b, blues - 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 2017 single “Just Wanna Love You”, the follow up to his critically-acclaimed Getaway album, quickly gained popularity online, racking up over 7 million views on Youtube and over 2.5 million streams on Spotify and has become a fan-favorite singalong at his live shows. “Their’s nothing like it, when the fans sing your songs back to you. It’s honestly one of the best feelings in the world. Seeing people connect to your music and giving them joy is what it’s all about. It’s why I do this.”
His 2018 singles, “Other Side” and "Bronco" which break new ground, sonically, continue to further the story and bring fans out to shows, who sing along to every word. Between those two singles, Moore has already racked up an impressive 3.8 Million streams on Youtube and Spotify.
