He started his musical life as the (one and only) keyboard player in an original line up of Iron Maiden.

He then went on to form a 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.
In the mid 80’s his band Radio Java had a Christmas hit in Holland with a song he wrote and recorded at Abbey Road called “Fool”.
In 1986 he joined the band Cutting Crew as keyboard player, who then went on to have worldwide success with the song “(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight”
Through the 90’s he was co-writer/producer and musical director with an artist from Argentina called Marie Claire D’Ubaldo who had enormous success throughout Europe with the song “The Rhythm Is Magic”
At the end of the decade he founded and curated one of the most important and influential music venues for singer/songwriters in London, The Kashmir Klub. A unique space that played host to early shows from emerging artists like Damien Rice and KT Tunstall as well as secret shows from superstars like Sheryl Crow, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and members of Fleetwood Mac.
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 handprint.
Tony was proud to have been a Music Ambassador for the European Games 2019 that were held in Belarus, and was so inspired by the passion around the event that he wrote a special song, We Are the Light, to recognise and celebrate how these games embrace the unity of sport and human endeavour 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.
During lockdown Tony took his live performance to the internet and has now done in excess of 210 online shows to date, building a community all around the globe.
October 2020 saw him launch his own signature label of Italian wine – “The Route 66 Tony Moore collection” in collaboration with the award-winning Torti winery in Lombardy and the official trademark owners of Route 66 worldwide.
On July 2nd 2021, Tony released his own unique take on the Rock And Roll Classic “Route 66” as his first single of the year.
Currently, he has just finished writing and recording a brand new album called AWAKE that, although unreleased so far, he is supporting with some highly acclaimed one-man shows in London.
