"Witch": Soul Singer Quentin Moore Preaches the funk

To anyone wondering where real music is today, look no further. Austin,TX USA-native Quentin Moore is an R&B and Soul artist with a sound that exudes originality while capturing a bygone era of love, happiness, joy and pain. Following the success of his 2013 album “You Forgot Your Heart,” which rose to the top of the UK soul charts, and the February 2014 release of “The Vday EP: Volume 1,” Moore is ready to take the music world by storm again with the world premiere of the video of the single “Witch.” “Witch” is a blend of a variety of sounds that come together to channel the essence of the Blaxploitation Soul/Funk era while capturing the Indie Neo-Soul vibe of today. “Witch” is a song about a bitter woman who is shallow and materialistic, trapped because of her past love life failures. The song is intended to show bitter women that if they make a change in their attitudes toward men, abandon wishes of a fairytale romance, stop focusing on material objects and release the failures of past relationships, it can possibly bring them more than they've ever wanted in their love lives. With the video premiere of “Witch,” Moore shows that he is a creative force to be reckoned with, in sight as well as sound. 

Moore’s recently released album “You Forgot Your Heart” is a mellow, jazz-blues-funk infused odyssey of soul, taking the listener on a journey into love, heartbreak, freedom and fulfillment. One senses this journey has been Quentin’s as well, as each groove comes to life with raw reality that only comes from personal experience.  “You Forgot Your Heart” transcends mere performance and ascends to the heights of passion, pain, pleasure, and even purpose. Alternately a blast from the past and a vibrant portrait of the present, the album mixes the classic soul sound of the sixties and seventies with the neo soul vibe of today’s urban culture. His first single, “Natural Sista”, held the number one spot on the UK Breaking Artists Independent Charts and maintained a top ten ranking on the UK Soul Charts for weeks. It has also been a popular underground hit at home in the US. The album itself has occupied the number three spot on the UK Soul Charts and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. A graduate of the University of North Texas, Moore currently resides in Dallas. When not in the studio or performing live, Moore is active keeping up with social media, being a foodie, jogging, and staying up to date with the latest in movies, music and culture.
