TONY MOORE


Tony began his career in the music industry playing keyboards as an original member of “Iron Maiden”. 

He then went on to be part of the formation of a new band called “Tanz Der Youth” with Brian James (ex Damned) and achieved critical acclaim as part of the “New Wave” of British Music at the end of the 70’s.

During the early 80’s Tony recorded an album of his own songs at the legendary Abbey Road studios which spawned a Christmas hit in Europe in 1983 with a song called “Fool”

In 1986 he joined a band called Cutting Crew as keyboard player and they went on to have massive worldwide success with a song called “I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight” which was number 1 in many countries around the world.

Through the 90’s he wrote, recorded and produced songs for Argentine singer Marie Claire D’ubaldo and toured the world as her MD on the back of massive hit songs like “the Rhythm Is Magic” in Italy, Japan, Russia and South America.

In the late 90’s Tony Moore launched a seminal venue for songwriters in Central London called The Kashmir Klub . His entrepreneurial instinct and passion for music helped him establish a groundbreaking club that went on to discover and develop artists like Damien Rice, KT Tunstall, Imogen Heap, The Feeling and many more.

At the start of  2003, building on the success of the Kashmir Klub, he took over The Bedford in Balham and turned it into one of the most successful and award winning small venues in the country. Where, once again, he played a significant role in the careers of artists such as Paolo Nutini, James Morrison, Newton Faulkner, Amy Macdonald, Ed Sheeran and a host of others whilst still continuing his musical career, writing, recording and playing live shows.

He has been inducted into the Music Managers Forum “Roll Of Honour” for outstanding contribution to The British Music industry as well as receiving the much coveted “Gold Badge” award from BASCA for his services to songwriters and music. In Malta he was even honoured to join other celebrities with his own GOLD “STAR” in the walk of fame alongside his hand print

In April 2014 Tony was invited to  present his own highly acclaimed weekly music show on Soho Radio London (www.sohoradiolondon.com) which won “Best Online Radio In The World” in 2016 and now has in excess of a million streams a month

Since the beginning of 2017 he’s been recording and releasing new material with the first single, “Perfect And Beautiful” making it into the top 40 iTunes singer/songwriter chart and a steady stream of material being released and heard all around the world.

On June 30th 2019 Tony performed his own composition “We Are The Light” at the closing ceremony of the European Games 2019 in Minsk, Belarus to a sold out stadium audience in front of special guest Vladamir Putin. The show was also televised live to 117 countries with an estimated audience of around 500,000,000 people.
