IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from? 

NATE MOORE: I’m from South St. Louis Missouri, the dog town neighborhood.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?

NATE MOORE: As a child I played any instrument I could get my hands on.  Although I never finished high school, I was in the band and played the trumpet for 3 years. I’ve been listening to hip-hop since I can remember. Having an older sister who loved hip-hop really helped shape what I listened to growing up. I remember watching her VHS music video tapes she received via mail. I’d watch them over and over and just tell myself that I’ll be a star like them.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music? 

NATE MOORE: I’ve always wanted to be great. I’ve loved the epic stories of human successes. I’ve found what I’m great at and would like to share that with the world and my family. I believe I could do much more for myself and everyone else.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?

NATE MOORE: My songs are about life, love, happiness, struggle, pain, joy, dreams, and nightmares. There’s a wide range of topics in my music, but at the end of the day my songs are about my personal interpretation of life experiences.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?

NATE MOORE: I would say that my music has made me fans from all age ranges. It’s definitely most popular with the teens and young adults. I’ve gotten off stage and have had a man in his 50’s tell me I gave him goosebumps, while singing an autograph for a high school kid that has to be home before curfew.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences? 

NATE MOORE: I have many, but a few of the ones that stick out are, Eminem, Jay Z, Blink182, Tim McGraw, MGK, Caskey, Lil Wayne, Yelawolf, Master P, Snoop, and Pac.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?

NATE MOORE: Savage! (Haha) just kidding, my music is poetic and light. There are tracks for when your happy or when you’re upset. It’s dark at times and it’s uplifting at others. It’s me.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artist? 

NATE MOORE: My good looks…haha again just kidding. Seriously though my work ethic and my art itself demonstrates a lot. I also believe the people who have invested time and put faith in me are smart people and wouldn’t be “yes” men. If they don’t like something they tell me, so having a strong team helps. I believe a good leader must know how to follow and that hard work and talent are two keys you’ll need for this industry.
