Link To Pre-Save/Pre-Order
MAY 3rd, 2022 – (London, UK) – On June 3rd, 2022 award-winning UK singer/songwriter Tony Moore releases his brand new single “Let Your Heart Begin To Sing” on miniMAJOR Music across all digital platforms. The song was written at the start of 2020 when his Mother developed dementia and became bedridden. Tony was inspired to create a song that would give her hope; during the first lockdown, he would sing it to her every day as she would do “hand ballet” laying in bed and singing along.
Although recorded early in 2021, the song wasn’t scheduled for an official release, however, it was picked up by Caffe Nero for their in-store playlist where it has now been heard in every outlet around the country for over a year. During this time customers began contacting the Nero head office asking about this “mystery” song as it couldn’t be found on Shazam or Google; which resulted in them often going back to the store at a specific time everyday in order to hear it again!
Tony says “I was quite overwhelmed by the response and after replying to many of the enquiries with an MP3 and copy of the lyrics I found that many people identified with both the message of the song and reason I was inspired to write it. It was then that I realised I had to finally release the song to the wider world”
The song was performed, recorded, produced, and mixed entirely by Tony on his own in the shed at the bottom of his Mothers garden, where he had set up a studio during the lockdown. His friends Lorrie and Tommy Harden from the band Lost Hollow in Nashville sent him backing vocals to add to the track which was Mastered by Wes Maebe at the legendary Galaxy Studios in Belgium
Tony Moore is an artist with a long career in the music business. He started as a keyboard player in the band Iron Maiden at the end of the 70’s, before they had signed their first deal.

He has been awarded the much coveted Gold Badge award for services to the UK Music industry as well as the sole inductee into the Music Managers Forum Roll Of Honour in 2004.

NEVER GONNA SAY GOODBYE
AWARD-WINNING UK SINGER/SONGWRITER TONY MOORE ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE THAT IS OF THE FASTEST WRITTEN, RECORDED AND COMMERCIALLY RELEASED SONGS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.
“Never Gonna Say Goodbye”, By Tony Moore, Comes Out On Nov 19 And Will Be One Of The Quickest Commercial Releases Of Newly Written Music When It Debuts On Digital Platforms All Over The World.
London, UK. (Autumn 2021) – UK Based Singer/Songwriter Tony Moore will release his new single “Never Gonna Say Goodbye” on November 19th, 2021. The song was written on October 18th and recorded the following evening. The accompanying video was filmed and edited on the 25th and 26th and everything was ready for the soonest official commercial release date possible.
Both the recording process and subsequent video were all done by Tony on his own as he ended up working through the night in his own small studio and didn’t even have time to co-opt anyone else into the project.
Tony says “I had a moment of inspiration with this song as I thought about all the people we have to let go of in our lives. It was written in the space of an hour or so and the feedback from friends was so positive that I immediately produced the track and made a video a few days later. The release is the quickest we could possibly make it, within the limitation of official timings and dates.”
“Never Gonna Let You Go” comes out on miniMAJOR Music which is distributed by Absolute Label Services worldwide.
Tony, who was awarded the much-coveted GOLD BADGE for services to music in the UK as well as being the sole inductee into the Music Managers Forum Hall Of Fame in 2004, is an artist with a long and eclectic career in the entertainment world. He started his career playing in an early lineup of Iron Maiden before leaving to work with many bands, including joining Cutting Crew ( I Just Died In Your Arms) as a keyboard player in the 80’s.
Over the last decade, Tony has continued to write, record, and release music whilst also championing new music and emerging artists by creating stages for acts to be seen and heard at their very best. Among the thousands of performers that he has supported early on in their career are Ed Sheeran, James Bay, James Morrison, KT Tunstall, Jorja Smith, and Jack Savoretti.
“AWAKE” is a concept album. In an age where people are releasing solo tracks, I’ve gone against the grain and gone right back to my roots to the 60s and 70s rock kind of concept albums and progressive rock, and made something for me really that I am absolutely passionate about. It seems to be translating to other people and the tagline is in a nutshell, “ It’s a journey to discover truth, meaning and love in a world that’s gone crazy.” So that should tell you quite a lot about it. It’s about these last 18 months. It’s about my observations and my thoughts and my feelings and my creative response to what I’ve been thinking about. It’s also about looking at my life‘s journey. I think one thing that’s happened over the last year is I don’t think there is a single person on this planet that hasn’t at some point just questioned what their life is about, and where their life is going, because everything was thrown in the air in a way that there was no certainty or no future that you could plan on.” Read the full interview here!
