A Little Bit
Pacific Northwest native, Will Moore, is probably best known through Seattle’s beloved band The Chasers, but he has also performed with bands including Pistol Star, Widower, Star Anna, among others and toured as part of the opening act for Counting Crows on their Outlaw Roadshow tour. Having achieved success and experience as part of these groups, including being featured on San Francisco band Abbot Kinney’s latest record (The Night), Moore has recently wrapped his debut EP, My Mistake, released through Arena Music.
“My Mistake”, is the culmination of five emotional years. Having experienced the loss of both his best friend and his girlfriend’s brother, Will had a choice to make: continue down this path of doubt and despair, or choose to do something worthwhile with his story. Lucky for us, Will chose to create “My Mistake”, an album that feels both comforting and uplifting despite the sadness it was born out of. This debut EP is a testament to change and progress and Will lives his life in the same way, continuing the campaign for stem cell research on behalf of his best friend and sharing his story through music.
Will Moore's genuine approach of his lyrics is delivered on a gold platter of sweet and sophisticated chord progressions. His years of experience singing in choirs and various bands surely shows in his strong command and mature artistry. Possessing every characteristic of a rock anthem, “A Little Bit” guitar lines weave stealthy behind his raspy, warm vocals. The exchange between the acoustic and the electric guitar on “Don’t Let Your Lover Down” with transcending vocals on the chorus is what make Will stand apart from most indie rockers. The elegance of Will’s arrangements are carried throughout the entire EP by his mastery of instrument choices. Finally, leaving you wanting for more, the closing track, “You Don’t Like Me”, bridges the gap between the glorious era of Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello and now.
“My Mistake” is available on all digital outlets.
