Philos Moore / Press

"Philos Moore voice is that of a man who’s trying to push the feelings of loss and being slighted by life, into the corners of his mind, but not always succeeding. There’s a tired and grim resignation to his voice, he probably isn’t aware of. If you run into him on the street, and ask him how he’s doin’, he’ll tell you sincerely,” Just fine.” And he’ll believe it when he says it. But the man who sings, “ But wait, Just wait,” over and over is biding his time, hoping his luck will soon change. “Maybe, just maybe.” The picking is pretty and deceptive throughout. On “I’m Tryin’ To,” there’s a long, meandering, musical coda, where it feels as though he’s searching for direction; never arriving but further from where he began. I’d like to see more from Philos Moore. This is a melancholy collection of songs for your next Sunday Morning Coming Down listening companion. And once he works himself past this stage of torment, and into another, he’ll be

"There are strong influences of Dylan and Guthrie perfectly apparent but in no way are these hindering his song writing. If anything I would say this was a perfect example of wearing your influences on your sleeve whilst creating contemporary and fresh music of the genre.

"Exceptional gui­tar play­ing, great ambi­ence. Philos Moore sounds some­what like a calmer, low-key ver­sion of The Tallest Man On Earth."

"His name is Philos Moore, but you could refer to him as Chris Suda. He’s a singer-songwriter, but that hasn’t always been the case. Currently in a two piece instrumental band called Probably The Tornado with his best friend Michael Pocus, Philos decided it was time to try something different. In his own words, “I was listening to a Bob Dylan song called Only A Pawn In Their Game, and something just fired off in my brain. “The emotion he threw at the microphone in that song blew my mind, and I wanted to do something like that.” In the past year, he’s done his best to write a song everyday, taking inspiration from Woody Guthrie. Some songs are topical, most are personal, and the rest can’t quite be labeled as one thing or another." -UAB Kaleidoscope — Britty Reese, UAB Kaleidoscope
