He also cites the influence of the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band, artists he’s also had the pleasure of performing alongside. “There’s an honesty to them as people, and that comes through in their music,” Moore observes. “They paint real-life stories – there’s nothing artificial about what they do.

Trends come and go, but people always gravitate back to something that’s authentic, and that’s where I’ve always tried to be.” “Tryin To Be A Blessing” Available Everywhere 10/4/2019
