Inspired by 20th century children’s TV, Benny Sings, The Andrews Sisters, and The Beatles, George Moir is a fascinating artist in the modern-day musical landscape. An animator, writer, producer, and musician, George was raised as one of eight homeschooled children on a honey farm. The unique world that encompasses George’s music pulls on his unique upbringing by his Artist Mother, and Apiarist Father, providing a hitherto unexplored perspective on life in the UK. A truly versatile artist, George recently collaborated with Welsh rapper and singer Yxngxr1 in a sweet indie breakup track “Hair Tie”, as well as soundtracking the Netflix Teen Romance film “Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between”.
Apollo 13 is the long awaited first release of 2022 for George Moir, and the first independent release of his catalogue. Accompanied by a homemade music video, the quirky, upbeat track follows George on his journey to success. Full of frustration, humour, and sweet wholesome overtones, George’s smooth and grainy voice sits over an excited dry drum kit, warbly and anxious guitars, and snippets of radio chatter. It’s a track that solidifies George as one of the UKs most interesting contemporary songwriters, as excitement builds for his upcoming EP “Wish You Were Here”.
George Says about Apollo 13:
“So much of the messaging I’ve run into about success and well-being has actually been counter productive for me – there’s a huge focus on taking the right steps, believing in your own abilities and determination, and if you have the right mindset you can do anything. So if you’re doing all the right things and still don’t see success it can be a real bummer. My own experience has been that if it’s not meant to be, then you’re not getting there no matter what you try, so much of it is beyond our control, and I think that can be a really comforting thing. This track is born out of those experiences, writing it was a great way to vent my frustrations with myself and the world, and an encouragement after being bombarded with unhelpful advice.”
Going from strength to strength, George Moir’s project is revered by The Sunday Times’ Breaking Act, Dork Magazine, BBC Radio 1’s Gemma Bradley, Greg James and Jack Saunders, BBC Introducing and Radio X.
