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).
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. said, "music has always been my biggest passion. I love it all - performing live, writing songs and recording in the studio. For better or for worse, I write or co-write all of my songs and do the vast majority of guitar work and overdubs on my albums. There are plenty of session guys out there who are much more talented than I am, but I enjoy adding my personal touch and playing as many instruments on my songs as I can. Each instrument allows me to express myself in different way.”
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. Hudson hand selected a small, but tight group of musicians to help fill out the sound of the album. In addition to co-writing each of the songs on Getaway, Moore played eleven instruments during the recording process.
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. “
Still missing a permanent bass line to groove with Hirota-Mabry’s percussion, Dowdy and Mabry reached out to former student and improvisational standup bassist, Tim Logan. After the first rehearsal, Logan was hooked.
Almost seven years later, Down for the Count has certainly found their own sound, fusing the Bluegrass and Americana genres and occasionally letting their strings wander over into the Pop and Classic Rock arenas as well. From sing-along favorites to wonderfully obscure B-side tracks, their superb musicianship has built the band a loyal following along the I-35 corridor between San Antonio and Austin and even as far east as College Station. They’ve played wine dives and restaurants, hill country bars and honky-tonks, SXSW parties and Rock N Roll Marathons. They’ve even been featured in a Bob Dylan Tribute show.
