After dropping a few newbies in June (2017), Canadian Singer/songwriter Maurice Moore delivers the intoxicating new single, “Little More,” a record that urges his female companion to be attentive and appreciative of the “little things.”
“I was going through a weird place in my relationship. I was happy, but I was also frustrated. I felt like a lot of the things I was doing weren’t being recognized,” Maurice told Billboard. “I was underappreciated, because my girl at the time didn’t understand my lifestyle. She didn’t see the little things. ‘Little More’ tells her to pay attention a little more. It’s exactly what I was going through.”
Moore also says that “Little More” set the stage for his upcoming debut full-length album, The Amber Room, due this fall.
“‘Little More’ was one of the first songs I created for The Amber Room. It acts as a bedding for the themes and soundscapes I touch on during the rest of the project,” he says. “The Amber Room takes you on the journey of a summer from its promising beginnings to the inevitable end. ‘Little More’ set the tone for the story of The Amber Room in the perfect way.”
Born in Springfield, IL and raised in Ottawa, Maurice spent his formative years balancing football and music.
“I always thought football was the thing,” he admits. “Once I got to Connecticut, I started feeling these weird, mixed emotions. Music was tugging on my heart. I was falling out of love with the game, but I was making some of the best tracks of my life at night. It ended up changing the landscape for me. I jumped off into the next stage of my career at that point.”
Maurice plans to continue creating his own lane by creating “relatable music.
“I want to make listeners happy,” he leaves off. “I think about them getting lost in this and feeling emotion. I’m so human, and I want to relate. I hope I can connect to the world.”ct way.”
