This week's hottest brand new act...
KEY TRACK: Nothing On You
LABEL: Closer Recordings/Virgin EMI
MANAGEMENT: Josh Sanger & Chris Fuller, Closer Artists
WHO? Lily Moore is 20-year-old pop hopeful inspired by early exposure to a parental record collection filled with classics by the likes of Etta James and Sam Cooke.
WHAT? With big vocals chock full of smouldering emotion and plenty of endearing character, Moore chronicles 21st century life with a timeless soul.
WHERE? Moore is from Brighton where she went to music college. She actually scored a record deal while in class, but kept it secret so she could finish her studies.
SOUNDS LIKE A SMART MOVE...
Yes indeed. And here’s another: after moving to London, the singer started her own Portobello Road club night, More Moore, so she and friends could regularly play gigs.
TELL ME MOORE!
Moore is following up a run of EPs with a mixtape of new songs in September. Also titled More Moore, it’s inspired by the music and artists who played her night, while the event itself returns for one night only at the 100 Club on September 10.
