Introduce yourself / Band

Heyy, I’m Emma Moore – a country singer and songwriter from Blackpool.

How did you get into country music?

My mum has listened to it all her life, especially Tammy Wynette and
Dolly Parton so luckily she played it around me from being tiny. My
first big influences were The Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain, both of
which I still listen to today.

How would you describe your sound?

Story driven Country songs with influences of Americana and
Singer/Songwriter styles, and delivered straight from the heart.

What is your favourite country music song?

These both change way too much, but at the minute To Listen to it’s
Brandy Clark (12 Stories Album). One song is way too tricky but I love
the way Brandy writes and makes every word sounds authentic.

To Perform it’s probably ‘Let Er Rip’ by The Dixie Chicks. It’s so fun
as both a vocalist and performer and brings back brilliant/horrifying
memories of my 9 year old self singing into anything remotely microphone
shaped with my huge CD player. Gotta love the 90’s!

Who would be your dream collaboration?

I think probably The Dixie Chicks (fangirl much?) They are phenomenally
talented musicians, full of sass, perfect harmonies that I really miss
as a solo artist, and Natalie Maines has one of the best voices I’ve
ever heard.

If we came to one of your gigs, what should we expect?

Relatable stories, a lot of fun, maybe a tear or two and a wide range of
great Country music.

What’s new with you?

I’m about to launch my DEBUT ALBUM! I can’t put into words how excited I
am about this, and can’t wait to get it out into the world. ‘Pilot’ will
be released Friday 17th June so every waking (and should be sleeping)
minute is being put into it.

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
