A hidden gem emerging from the streets of the South Coast, Lily Moore has more on her mind...
From busking on the streets of Brighton to selling out headline shows all across the UK, Lily Moore is a natural storyteller. Sprinkling the sweet, luscious sounds of her warming voice all over the country it’s no surprise that many individuals resonate with her music – her organic and unforced lyricism tells no lies.
With a childhood surrounded by the alluring melodic sounds of legendary soul artists such as Etta James, Lauryn Hill and Sam Cook, Lily has been crafting her own sweet harmonies ever since. On the journey to spread her uniquely refreshing sound, Lily moved to London at just 19 and in the space of around one year has developed her own stripped back, acoustic neo-soul sound, completely selling out her first solo headline tour and gained a huge sum of accolades from radio stars such as Clara Amfo, Annie Mac, Phil Taggart and Scott Mills. With her two EP’s following the theme of romance, young love and the trials and tribulations of adolescent years, Lily is a voice for the lovers, young or old.
Telling the tale of a relationship about to lose its spark, Lily releases the video for her latest single “Why Don’t You Look At Me” today via Virgin EMI/Closer Recordings. A wholesome track with a lulying melody and sweetly broken lyricism Lily explains that this single is all about “The honeymoon days, where you can’t stop thinking about each other, going on crazy dates and showing them off to everyone, are long over. You’re now eating beans on toast on the sofa and barely looking or talking to each other. It’s a realisation that maybe he’s just not that into you anymore.” A heartbreaking realisation for us all told in a comforting warm manner, this track is one to not be unheard. An old soul singing the tales of modern love, Lily Moore really and truly is an authentic gem on the cusp of stardom.
