Spotlight on Emma Moore

This is the third and final spotlight piece ahead of Belles and Gals first ever live gig that takes place in Liverpool next Saturday night – today I focus on the headliner Emma Moore. I first came across Emma at the beginning of last year when she posted a song on YouTube called ‘Paper Roses’ which she had literally just written (if my memory is right, she actually posted it on Valentine’s Day). I fell in love with the song immediately and it was one of the first videos I ever featured from a UK artist.

What really struck me was the quality of Emma’s voice and I knew I had to hear more. Emma quickly became my most featured artist on Belles and Gals and she was also the first artist I ever interviewed. At that time, I was aware that Emma was on the verge of a new release, and just 3/4 months later, news of Emma’s debut album “Pilot” started circulating. The first song to appear from the album was ‘I Don’t Know’ and this offered a great sneak preview of the album.

‘Pilot’ is a simply brilliant album that really showcases both Emma’s brilliant vocals and her songwriting ability. Songs such as ‘Alone’ and “Bottom of the Bottle” are simply fantastic, while you’ll also hear a brilliant version of “Paper Roses” after the early demo above. The title track ‘Pilot’ is another real highlight, as is the very emotional “Daytime Black”.

Nearly a year after hearing Emma for the first time, she is now headlining Belles and Gals first ever gig and I couldn’t be more delighted. Emma is a rising star in UK country and I get the feeling that 2017 will be a real breakthrough year for the Blackpool based singer songwriter. On Saturday night in Liverpool she’ll be appearing with a full band and I know for a fact she’ll be amazing. If you want to see Emma, alongside both Hannah Rose Platt and Samantha Lloyd next weekend, you can grab a ticket here, while you can download a copy of ‘Pilot’ here
