John Moore And Missing Star are coming out of Buffalo New York, with an inspiring sound and a new musical project combining Band Members Tom Robinson on the bass, Steve Ryder on Guitar, Joe(Mojo) Mergler on the keys, Shannon Street on percussion and lead Vocalist and guitarist, John Moore.
John Moore brings with him a loyal following and an already impressive list of musical achievements , including penning the song “Shelter Me,” for the soundtrack album to the movie Lonestar State Of Mind, featuring John Mellencamp, as frontman for the NewYork based band 53 Days.
Upon listening to the New Single , World’s On Fire, I was immediately sucked in both by the blaring guitars and John Moore’s inviting voice. The “Beatles-esque,” “On Your Way,” sounds like a jam session of the greats, minus Lennon’s signature sound or perhaps even McCartney’s songwriting, although John Moore certainly holds his own.
The song “Work It Out, continues to deliver with a catchy riff and matching rhythm. The album “All in your Head” is definitely one for your personal playlist as I found myself, as I rarely do, saving these songs to listen to later. If I had to rate the performance of All in your Head, I would give it a 8 on a scale of 1 to 10 for its great composition, awesome lyrics, and outstanding delivery.
Add their new video for the single World’s On Fire, complete with Tamborine and dance floor disco dancing, I was ready to go out dancing!
What rings through is these guys are not just some pop group, they are a performance band, with a superior Lead Vocalist Songwriter in Moore. I felt the single to be fun, energetic and almost anthemic.
All this comes from Moore’s laid back body language. You are almost suprised at times that his voice is coming from him.
Fans in the New York area will be able to see them live first on these dates (see link) http://missingstarband.com/shows and you can stream their album on Spotify here https://open.spotify.com/album/2GlRdkoRcEPzpO1qsIwgvK
