Lily Moore

Brighton

Wednesday 14th June 2017

Name, where are you from?    
Lily Moore, Brighton 

Describe your style in three words?  
Street-wood-mac.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Rex Orange County at KoKo. He is brilliant, and the room was so full of love for him that evening. I haven’t felt an atmosphere at a gig that good for a while.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history? 
Prince. For obvious reasons, he is the best.
Aretha Franklin. My idol.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
My great nan. I’ve never got to meet her but hear she was a bit of a legend. 

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?  
I know it’s a bit obvious, but I’m going to have to say Brixton Academy. I was supporting Vance Joy there, and having been born in London before moving to Brighton and growing up going to loads of gigs there, it was so surreal and wonderful to get to stand on that stage and perform. Although it was so nerve-wracking it is a night that will stay in my memory forever.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Nick J D Hodgson - 'Suitable'. A f*cking AMAZING SONG. 


Born in London, raised in Brighton, Lily Moore developed an early taste for the soulful voices of Etta James, Lauryn Hill and Sam Cook. Lily’s own songwriting has developed into a disarmingly stripped-back style that recalls a young Amy Winehouse or Lianne La Havas. Lily Moore's debut EP 'Not That Special' is out now.
