Wildcard (week 25):
Lily Moore – Summer

Lily Moore has the potential to have a career like Amy Winehouse. But hopefully a longer one with a happier ending. She, too, grew up listening to soul legends like Etta JamesLauryn Hill and Sam Cooke. Surprisingly, perhaps, if you know she’s the daughter of the late Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore. Great to hear she found her own voice in more ways than one. She has a distinctive vocal sound and picked her own genre to excel in.

Moore, now 24 years old, is based in London. She started busking the streets, but her proper musical career started with her promising EP’s Not That Special and I Will Never Be (2018). The latter title almost became a self-fulfilling prophecy, when her momentum (like that of so many other artists) was abruptly halted in 2020. Luckily she decided to give music another chance and used this difficult period to write her strongest tunes yet. These are compiled on her new 6-track EP Before I Change My Mind, Again….

About the writing process of these songs she says: ”The sessions I wrote these in were during those dark days when the world was in a funny place. The outside world was fucked, but inside the studio I was safe. Quite honestly, this EP gave me back my life.”

Her latest six tracks include previous singles Hard Days, Beautiful Lie and Never Wanted You More, plus three brand-new songs. Summer is Lily’s new single. A sunny tune about her beloved subject: a break-up. This time, for a change, it’s her walking away.

We want Moore!

No better day than 21 June to announce that Summer by Lily Moore is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. This means it’ll be featured prominently at the top of the blog for a whole week.
