Robert Moore started his singing career in a Southern Baptist church, and that early heartfelt gospel truth can still be heard in the soulful delivery of his music.
After stints as a public schools music teacher, he began his performance career, settling in Birmingham, Alabama. After 25 years there, he moved his scene to Portland, Oregon, finding a home and a following among the knowing jazz fans of that musically sophisticated city.
His music has steadily grown in depth, passion and honesty during his 61 years on the planet. Robert’s well-seasoned, finely-honed chops on vocals, trumpet, and harmonica are bringing joy to a wider audience than ever.
And as well-crafted as any of his albums are, don’t ever miss a chance to see this veteran performer and band leader put an audience in his pocket and carry them away.
Robert Moore Reviews:
“Robert Moore is a vintage Jazz hipster and possibly the coolest one in town. A singer, a trumpeter and a composer who has a maverick streak and takes no mess. This honesty and willingness to speak his mind has not endeared him to everyone in the music biz…but it has to music fans.” —Tom D’Antoni, Oregon Music News
“With Southern gospel roots, Moore has developed a soulful, passionate delivery. … With the release of Outta My Soul , Moore has crafted an accessible, well-rounded musical statement. Drawing on his skills as a composer, singer and instrumentalist, this twelve-track, polished album combines accomplished session players with a seasoned band leader.” —Robbie Gerson, Audiophile Audition
