Geoff Moore began his career in music while singing for the first time with a friend in a college dorm room. What was then a fluke turned out to be a lauded career that has reached out to hundreds of thousands of youth and adults around the globe, spreading a consistent message of love, hope and life. Geoff Moore promises to do more of the same. The poignant lyrics set to flowing melodies enter the ears of the listener and come to rest in the center of their heart.
With four straight Grammy Award nominations for Rock Gospel album and a string of No.1 radio hits throughout the last decade, Geoff Moore chose at the height of his success to take some time off for an introspective look at life and has emerged with a new style, new lyrics, a new look and new lease on life on his ForeFront Records first-ever, self-titled project, Geoff Moore.
Fans of Geoff Moore know of this Michigan native's 10-plus year run with his rock band. The Distance and his award winning song collaborations with his best friend Steven Curtis Chapman. While The Distance disbanded in1998, and Moore has moved on to the next season of his musical career, the songwriting collaborations with Chapman have not only continued, but also strengthened.
On this new project, Moore and his buddy Chapman co-wrote three of the 11 songs, even performing one as a duet. The song, "Thanks To You", is filled with the fun and joy of a true friendship, and even adds a little behind-the-scenes humor as Gospel Music Association Dove Award winning producer, Monroe Jones (Chris Rice, Third Day) kept some of the original studio fun in the mix. Moore and Chapman met in the early 80's when Moore sang on a demo for one of Chapman's new songs. Chapman liked Moore's voice and Moore liked Chapman's songwriting. The friendship grew. Chapman has recorded several songs co-written with Moore as well, including the No.1 songs "Speechless," and "The Great Adventure", which brought the songwriting duo the 1993 Dove Award for Song of the Year.
