Ontario born, Vancouver raised, and LA based singer-songwriter Emilee Moore is turning her heartbreak into confessional and wistful pop, weaving misery and memories with airy vocals, earnest lyrics and evolving soundscapes to capture all the ups and downs of love.
Her debut collection of songs explores all the beautiful yet painful sides of relationships, sending listeners on a bittersweet visit down memory lane; each song pulls the listener into another distinct, familiar chapter of the inner monologue that follows a relationship breakdown.
Inspired by music from John Mayer to Avril Lavigne, and Norah Jones to Bon Iver, Emilee Moore’s take on pop music slips seamlessly from guitar ballads to lush vocal arrangements, from diary entries written at the piano to an upbeat rally cry for those nights spent driving around with the top down. Her cathartic songwriting and heartbreaking melodies remind audiences of their shared experiences in love and love lost, the very connection Emilee longs to build through her music.
After just a few releases, Emilee has found herself on several popular playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday Canada and Fresh Finds as well as Apple Music’s New Music Daily and Wildflower. She has also landed interviews and features from media outlets such as Toronto’s ‘Aesthetic Magazine’, Los Angeles’ ‘Bankrupt Studios’, and Vancouver’s ‘Pinpoint Sound.’
As her heartbreaking catalogue unfolds, Emilee Moore invites listeners into her world while she pieces together her journey of young love, heartache, regret and healing, putting into song all the words you wish you’d said.
UNLESS I HAVE TO
"Unless I Have To" is about not wanting to move on. It paints a heartbreaking, gut-wrenching picture of a girl who can’t get herself to give up on a guy that left a long time ago. This soft, sad, anthemic pop ballad captures the misery of holding onto the small piece of hope that the one person you love might still come back. It’s perfect for crying yourself to sleep or laying in bed writing a text you can’t unsend.
