ABOUT AMELIA MOORE:
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Amelia Moore creates the kind of visionary alt-pop that both defies expectations and feels immediately essential. In a whirlwind journey she describes as “homeschool to Hollywood,” the 21-year-old Georgia native got her start singing in her hometown church choir outside of Atlanta, before graduating from High School at 16 and starting college at Belmont University in Nashville. College was a brand new world for Amelia – she experienced extreme culture shock and started to question everything she was raised to believe was true. Halfway through her sophomore year, she dropped out of Belmont and moved to L.A. on her own—then found herself frightfully adrift when the pandemic hit just two months later. With the world shut down, Moore immersed herself in writing and refining her vision for her debut project, and eventually began sharing her songs on TikTok. Within the very first week of posting her original material, she’d amassed over 100,000 followers drawn to her unaffected yet magnetic presence and fearlessly honest perspective—a turn of events that ultimately led to her signing with Capitol Records in fall 2021.
