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 vocals).
“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
