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.
Growing up, Jake was surrounded by diverse musical influences. He fondly recalls sitting in the back seat of the car listening to Elvis, the Beach Boys, the Eagles, Johnny Cash, George Strait, and other performers from many eras and musical traditions. His great grandfather was a legendary local fiddle player in rural Oklahoma during the depression, and his maternal grandparents were missionaries who taught and recorded music. Jake performed for the first time at the age of 7 at church, and by age 10 had participated in several local musicals in his hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas.
Jake made his public debut as a country artist in 2014 at Larry Joe Taylor's festival, where he played what would become the first single, "Hit the Road." He and the band cut the song as a demo and it made its way onto local radio stations, eventually reaching the top 30 and becoming one of the top 100 Texas radio songs of 2014. Increasingly successful singles followed, including "Ignorant Bliss" (#16), and 3 back-to-back #1 singles, TAKE MY HAND (#1 March 2016), LONELY STREET (#1 September 2016), and RESTLESS (#1 September 2017).
The band released their first album, "Love Don't Live Here," in September, 2015 with ten original songs. The album bears the band's signature blend of Jake's soulful vocals with lead guitar by Paul Teltschik and country fiddle by Owen Fitzsimmons.
The band plays shows throughout Texas with many of the biggest names in Texas music including Aaron Watson, Chris Young, Randy Rogers, Wade Bowen, Cody Johnson, Kevin Fowler, Stoney Larue, Roger Creager, Reckless Kelly, Whiskey Myers, Kyle Park, and others.
Jake Ward's new EP, "Not too Far to Reach" was released on October 13, 2017.
