Biography

As 2004’s Underground Music Awards Most Exciting Artist of The Year, Live Wire, born Terry R. Moore speaks to the world with his first love and major part of his life being Hip Hop. From his first recorded song ‘Somthin’, Live Wire opened his life to the world of audiences before him. As he states in the song "Moms had her habits, Pops had his habits and dammit neither one of them were strong enough to carry him." To every listener, he opens what many are afraid to reveal, their past. Traveling from one home to another and struggling for survival, never really knowing where home was, Terry followed a hard path through his childhood years.
Growing up his mom struggled with her addiction to crack and his father fell to the growing epidemic of most black males, imprisonment. Many young men in his position would have faltered to the backside of society, but he knew he was destined for something better and he was prepared to fight for a future.
As a young boy, his grandmother made sure he would be raised in the church. This is where he began his interest in music. While in church, Live Wire learned how to play the drums and mastered it on his own within two years. During his time between homes as an adolescent, he spent time with his mom in Syracuse . There he would discover his undeniable talent as an artist or what some would call a lyrical prodigy. Live Wire, along with his best friend Terrence Byrd, would soon form the group TnT which stood for Terry and Terrence and eventually took the city of Syracuse by storm. Young and talented, they performed in front of audiences as large as 16,000 people, always coming in first place at any competition.
Even though he enjoyed what he was doing with his friend Terrence, reoccurring drama behind his popularity caused Live Wire to relocate back to his home in Brooklyn where he could further his talent. Following his path to success as an artist and an entrepreneur, he was able to advance his talent through the means of Art Start’s Hip-Hop Project (HHP). The program was funded by Russell Simmons, whose purpose is to assist young artists in perfecting their craft, in addition to teaching them the business aspect of the music industry. Later, Live Wire and the Hip-Hop Project became the focus of the award-winning movie executive produced by Bruce Willis and Queen Latifah titled “The Hip-Hop Project”. The movie features Bruce Willis, Russell Simmons, Doug E. Fresh and Sway of MTV News.
From there, he made the decision to be managed by Al King of Go Ghettaz Entertainment, who was working with the Bad Boy artist Verse. While under Al’s management, there were conversations and words of advice given to Live that pivoted his road to success. His initiative for success and talent stands out amongst many people who are seeking fame. He has performed for outstanding audiences, sharing the stage with other performers such as Kanye West, John Legend, Dead Prez, Mr. Cheeks, Brand Nubien, Shaggy, Mya and Dana Dane, just to name a few.
As it stands, Live Wire is taking control of his future and has partnered with Jamil Clay, brother of Kareem Biggs Burke, CEO of Rocafella Records, in the launching of their own recording company The FORMULA, Inc. in pursuit of stamping their success in the music industry. Rising to bring the soul back to music, Live Wire is destined to become a Hip-Hop legend.
