Brian B Moore Specific Moore is celebrating his success this Crop Over with his first-time entry in the Party Monarch semifinals.
The artiste, who is affiliated with Redhead Productions, said 2017 was a good year for him despite it being his first year in the soca arena. This year is also proving equally rewarding, with him looking forward to competing in Party Monarch.
“I did my first recording with Blood at Redhead Productions with a track entitled ‘When Yah Winin’. It was pretty good. We got some good rotations and fairly good exposure for my first year. I performed at a couple of events. ‘When Yah Winin’ was a sweet soca song. Then I did another track [towards] the end of the season with Bomb Squad Productions called ‘Lighting and Thunder’. [It] did not really take off I guess because of the late release,” he recalled.
Moore will be performing last in the Party Monarch competition and believes he will be at an advantage.
“It gives me an opportunity to see what everyone else is bringing to the table and then I can feed off their energy,” he said.
His song ‘Out Ah Road’ was inspired by his friend’s Foreday Morning band bearing the same name.
“One of my good friends from school [with my] surname Matthew Moore has a Foreday Morning band called Road Warriors. He [said] the theme for the band this year is ‘Out Ah Road’ and I immediately got an idea [to] write a song that would be the anthem for the band,” Moore said.
According to him, the experience of making it to the semifinals has been a new learning curve for him and has improved his soca career immensely.
“Getting to perform and hearing my song played by a live band added a whole new element to my journey thus far performing,” he said.
