There are those that believe music has become too accessible, and is therefore a perfect storm for artistic mediocrity. There are even ramblings music has become "dumbed down." In the music sphere, there is unequivocal evidence we are increasingly moving away from "real music." Echoing elements of Jazz, Soul, and Gospel music, Temika Moore is a well-blended musical cocktail for those thirsty for "real music." With a fresh approach, she is unapologetic in the use of various sounds and styles providing for a soulfully original experience.
Born and raised in the rich musical legacy of Philadelphia, Temika attended the Philadelphia High School for Creative & Performing arts where she choraled the halls with fellow industry mates Boyz II Men, Amel Larrieux, Christian McBride, Lizz Fields, Mark Nelson, Joey DeFrancesco, Amhir "?uestlove" Thompson, Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, Karen Slack and Tamika Patton. Shortly after graduating from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore where she received the first Ella Fitzgerald music scholarship award, Temika further developed her sound performing at numerous venues in the Washington, DC area and abroad.
Temika Moore is regarded by many as a vocal virtuoso sharing the title with powerhouses Rachelle Ferrell, Ledisi, Maysa, Lizz Wright, Carol Riddick and Lalah Hathaway. Considered under-the-radar of mainstream celebrity culture, those that have discovered Temika’s body of work consider themselves to be among an exclusive group of music aficionados. She has shared the stage with Will Downing, Roy Ayers, Marcus Johnson and the late Stanley Turrentine. She has also opened for KEM, Ledisi, Dwele, Conya Doss, Cassandra Wilson, Najee, Pieces of a Dream, Melba Moore and Jean Carne. If any of these illuminated artists are one of your desert island picks, make room for Temika Moore.
