Bio

A.J Moore is an artist of the highest calibre who has performed in some of the world’s most famous venues from The Royal Albert Hall in London to the People’s Theatre in Shanghai. He has earned the respect from his music industry peers and the admiration of fan forums while performing as guitarist for number 1 selling classical artists Hayley Westenra, Laura Wright, Jonathan Ansell, Lee Mead and Faryl Smith. Now he is set to embark on his own artistic vision.

Harmonics is a pop rock endeavour that is infused with musical elements from classical, modern jazz, soul and blues. Originally from Carlisle, England, A.J’s classical training and formal education at Leeds College of Music equip him with the tools to compose music beyond the standard chord progressions already exhausted by many of his top selling contemporaries. Harmonics is a product of A.J’s relentless work ethic and broad musical vocabulary. He has created an energetic and sophisticated sound both instrumentally and vocally. The lyrical content is no less captivating discussing a wide range of themes and emotions from failed relationships, work, the environment and bullying, to self-doubt and love.

While written, arranged and recorded by A.J, Harmonics benefited from the contributions of legendary acid jazz musician Jan Kincaid, drummer of 'The Brand New Heavies', and writer of songs like 'Never Stop' and 'Dream On Dreamer'. The strings were supplied by members of Classic FM favourites 'The Pavao Quartet', bass and piano moments by the respected session musician Al Gurr and a couple of electrifying solos by top jazz guitarist, Jamie McCredie.

His live band are not only dear friends but like A.J, world class touring musicians who have played for Adele, Beyonce, Noel Gallagher, Robbie Williams, Bryan Adams, LSO, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Michael Jackson’s Thriller Live, and Kid Creole to name a few. Together they are evoking an audience response that is igniting a booking-frenzy amongst London promoters. A.J has performed in several international venues worldwide and like Bruce Springsteen, Prince and Dave Matthews Band, he knows intuitively how to work an audience, whatever the size.

Harmonics is currently on the long-term playlist at all Pret a Manger stores meaning we have a daily listening audience of 300,000. Out of 40 new tracks chosen in April for this playlist an eighth of those were from Harmonics. These include Two Days Away, Hypnotise, Just Like That, Calling You and You Want Me. We are in conversations with major media companies to have the album used in other stores across the UK, Europe and US. It is also receiving radio play on BBC Radio 2 and other UK based stations.

Track 7, Take It All Away, a conservation awareness song, written in honour of Sir David Attenborough, will be raising money for charities personally recommended by him. Furthermore, A.J was invited by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to perform at the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Summit (COP15).

Harmonics is only the beginning. A.J is currently completing a second album scheduled for release early 2013.
