Singer/songwriter Emma Moore was raised in the golden age of female country music.
And while the 90's may have been cruel to the fashion forward, the airwaves were full of strong, game changing artists like Shania
Twain, Reba McEntire and The Dixie Chicks - and luckily Moore took note. Though it may have been over a decade later that she started writing, those early influences can still be heard.
Hearing Emma Moore live it’s no surprise that her music journey started as a Vocalist. Equally at home serenading audiences with
just an acoustic guitar as leading her band with powerhouse vocals, the British Country songwriter is a truly compelling artist.
Hailed as ‘one of the most dynamic voices on the UK country scene’, (Think Country) Moore has been steadily making her mark since
the release of her debut album Pilot in 2016. The ten track ‘emotionally driven record’ (Maverick Magazine) showcased the softer side of Moore, thoughtfully introducing audiences to the out-of-the-box views Moore has on the situations we have all found ourselves in.
In 2017 the beginnings of the redheaded fire started to burn, first with ‘Trouble’ then in it’s follow up ‘Southern Belle’. The former
regularly closes out Moore’s live show, telling the tale of falling for a taken man, while the latter light-heartedly calls out those who
value their looks over personality.
Moore’s favour towards the bold continued into 2018 when ‘Good Girl’ was released. The foot-stomping single was played extensively
on BBC Introducing and featured in their best of 2018 end of year show. The track also landed in the hands of Bob Harris, who invited Moore to perform on his stage at the inaugural Long Road Festival alongside Lee Ann Womack, Striking Matches, Yola and more.
Though a northerner at heart, Moore spent most of 2019 in London focused almost entirely on songwriting. Whilst there she joined Grammy winning songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman in a writers round, flew out to Nashville (even played a few songs on Broadway)
and wrote her 2019 smash ‘Dutch Courage’.
Moore debuted the Country/Rock track when she opened up the first ever British Country Music Festival in her hometown. This track, more than any other, encompasses everything you can expect from an Emma Moore live show - a powerhouse voice soaring through a brutally honest story, and in a way only Moore could write.
With album two on the horizon Moore says “I’m going in to this album with a better idea of who I am as both an artist and performer.
It’s early days and I’m exploring so many new avenues but one thing I know is the new record will be inspired by my live show. I want to bring that same energy from the stage into the studio.”
