Rebecca Moore who debuted on the Society stage in November at Darling Harbour next took to the stage and commenced with “Daddy.” She enthralled with her wonderful Celtic, Earthy style and a powerful voice to match. Kate Bush and Sinead O’Connor are two comparisons, but there was a discernable individualism that was all Rebecca’s own, a certain Australianness was present. Enigmatic, reaching yet slightly haunting, she captured the audience immediately. “Spaceships” (writes Gav)…the chords capture the feel instantly, strong, breathy vocal. Interesting modern phrasing that adds to the lyric. Vocal dynamic kept everyone quiet. Killing Heidi energy but her own style. The song had energy and a real flavour. “Arnica” was about a homoeopathic remedy for traumas. Passionate, captures the feel and energy, almost as if a thunderstorm is present. Rebecca’s presence and powerful performing and singing kept the audience enthralled. Brilliant set from Rebecca who performs a lot around town, and excellent songs full of passion and an expansive feel that relates both to the inner and the outer.

A great selection of songs which reflect a very mature songwriting ability, Rebecca Moore’s voice is one of her greatest assets, shown in these three rather diverse in style songs, taking the instrumental on an interesting journey. The opening two songs are “Factory” and “Uluru” which take somewhat different approaches to the same sort of style, seemingly influenced by a country feel, though moving away from this easy pigeonhole with little difficulty. Both songs have a very strong vocal presence and deserve your immediate attention. Even better is the closing track “ Tasmania ,” which I loved, a song that opens up with a very bouncy thing happening early on with Rebecca’s voice again at the forefront of the song. This reminds me just a little of the Killing Heidi single Mascara and should see some decent airplay happening for her. If you’re into good vocals then you’ll love this artist, especially as there is some great songwriting involved too.

Rebecca Moore took to the stage where upon it was announced that she’d just featured in a self penned article in the Aprap magazine as part of the APRA Professional Development Award. The first song performed was “Factory” which featured a propulsive guitar hook that bordered on Rock. Strong and bluesy, the song carried itself by the surrealism of the lyrics and the story and with it Rebecca’s amazingly captivating singing. Very spontaneous and musical yet grounded by the guitar hook. Fascinating story and lyrics that demand future listens. “Ice” also showcased some amazing vocals and Rebecca’s convincing stage presence and delivery. The tempo and guitar patterns follow the emotion in the song, an excellent piece. Finally “Arnica” was based on a homoeopathic healing remedy. This was melodious and featured Rebecca’s alto vocal range. A brilliant set from Rebecca Moore who is a great performer with a stunning voice. Quote from Ben Ackermann, “she is one of the most brilliant people I have ever seen here.”
