Moore is a multi-talented Hip Hop artist from the northwest Chicago suburbs – Elgin, IL. He got his start as a founding member of the Hip Hop collective Watch City. Since the groups inception, Moore has released three official projects as a solo artist and toured the country in support of each. His mission as an artist is to create innovative music that stands out in the Hip Hop scene and beyond. Moore blends elements of modern and golden age Hip Hop with his background in Rock, Electronic and Jazz music to create a sound that is both nostalgic and undeniably fresh.
