Hi Eddie Moore here. I am a session keyboardist & producer. My goal is always high quality work and making great recordings. I bring lush keys and a powerhouse of improvisation to the table. I would love to help make your music everything you intended and more.
With deep roots in the Black American Music I use vintage tones from piano, synths, wurly, and rhodes, to explore and build with. I forged my way as a leader with my Jazz/fusion groups Eddie Moore & the Outer Circle and We the People. My work has been featured in Downbeat Magazine, Revive the Live music blog, Sofar Sounds, commercial with Sprint and Netflix (Queer Eye). I have worked with Grammy Nominated artists such as Tia Fuller (Jazz), Tivon Pennicott (Jazz), Corbin Dooley (Electronic/Pop), Chantae Cann (soul) , Dom Chronicles (Hip-Hop) 77 Jefferson (Reggae), Miles Bonny (Neo Soul). I currently run Tribe Studios where our focus is collaboration through creation.
