When you speak to Eddie Moore you find an ocean of calm, and when you listen to Eddie Moore & The Outer Circle you find the depth of that ocean. Eddie reaches from the soul with every note, in a deep way, with a tension just below the surface. His yearning for exploration and curiosity in music contribute to an ebb and flow freedom of expression, that in result gives to new discovery. The 2016 Charlotte Street Generative Performing Arts Award recipient formally began his musical journey at Texas Southern University where he earned a Bachelors in Arts in Piano Performance. Raised in Houston, Texas Moore is a lifelong musician traversing a number bands and styles before going back to school to get a Masters in Arts from the University of Missouri-Kansas City under the direction of Jazz Master Bobby Watson. Diversity and inclusiveness have become to define Moore as an artist. His expansive sensibilities have allowed him to perform and record with such distinctive artist such as Bobby Watson, Pam, Watson, Logan Richardson, Maurice Brown, Krystal Warren, Matt Otto, Brandon Draper, Andre Hayward, Tivon Pennicott, IamNobodi, and Dominique Sanders, and 77 Jefferson.
