Lily Moore's debut album 'Not that Special' proves she is a talent to watch out for
Lily Moore's debut EP 'Not that Special' is out now and it's smashing. Brighton's star Moore's neo-soul voice is about people in love and everything about it.
'Not that Special' is a soulful city-street track about finding love, while '17' is an upbeat anthem for being a teen and having the freedom to make mistakes and learn. 'Lying to yourself' is a piano filled melancholic pleading for honesty from an unknown partner. 'Come and see me' is a very intimate sketch of opening your heart to somebody.
Notion called it“…the young talent possesses that rare quality of sounding both refreshing and instantly iconic. We predict big things”
She’s already gaining support on radio with Phil Taggart playing ‘17’ as part of his Chillest Show on Radio 1 recently, and Lily stopped by Casey Heyburn’s BBC Introducing South show for a chat and performed live. ‘Not That Special’ also received praise from Annie Mac upon release, and both Zane Lowe and Elton John have been supporting her on Beats 1.
And for live audience, Moore has completed two sold out tours this year along with Vance Joy and George Ezra. And she is going to be supporting James Bay's upcoming UK tour. She also has a spot in Brighton's Great Escape Festival this May and announced two headline shows, 1st of May at the Slaughtered Lamb (SOLD OUT) and the 20th June at the Lexington.
Moore was born in London but raised in Brighton, her house regularly resonated with the sounds of Aretha Franklin, Etta James, and Nina Simone, with those soulful influences leaving a tangible trace on her voice. Lily derives her song writing influences mostly from the young power of Amy Winehouse or Lianne La Havas.
