When it comes to honing your craft, an apprenticeship doesn’t come much better than taking it to the streets, performing day-in-day-out, and earning acclaim doing it. That’s what up-and-coming blues-inspired performer Joe Moore did to earn his stripes, five days a week on the streets of Sydney busking to appreciative, and unappreciative crowds, but it was worth it, because it attracted the attention of some of the biggest names in the business. Fast forward from his humble beginnings in 2008 to now and to the release of his highly anticipated debut offering, and he is already a household name. Now, Cairns music fans have a chance to catch Joe Moore not once, but four times as he prepares for four massive nights at BAR36 this October.
For the former Brit, now proud Aussie, music has always been a passion. At a young age he had a music taste well beyond his years and a passion for performing and songwriting. Playing to the tough crowds of metro Sydney, he learned how to read a crowd, and keep a captive audience – attracting the attention of international artists such as Dizzee Rascal and The Script. He never knew who he was going to meet – case in point the day Nathan Morris, founder of the Grammy-award winning vocal group Boyz II Men saw him playing in Pitt Street Mall and asked him to support the group on stage that night.
Add support slots with the likes of John Farnham and Lionel Richie and Joe was steadily making a name for himself, but it wasn’t until the opportunity came up to audition for the 2015 season of The Voice that he was broadcast into homes around Australia. The judges and fans at home loved him and he reached the coveted runner-up spot on the series, taking away as many lessons as he could from his superstar mentors, the Madden Brothers.
Joe’s debut album A Thousand Lifetimes is out now. Don’t miss Joe Moore as performs at BAR36 at The Reef Hotel Casino for four nights this October.
