Temika Moore Short Info

She’s been described as “a breath of fresh air,” “a voice that gives wings to the spirit,” and “a cross between India Arie and Nancy Wilson,” but you will come up with your own superlatives once you hear the musical magic of Inspirational Soul artist Temika Moore. Weaving together strains of folk, jazz, soul, R & B and gospel, Temika Moore creates an unforgettable tapestry of sound, thanks to inspirations who include Rachelle Ferrell, Anita Baker, Oleta Adams, the Clark Sisters, Natalie Cole, Angela Winbush, Will Downing, Commissioned, and Take 6. Temika’s Inspirational Soul style pairs her melodious contralto with head-nodding grooves, glorious lyrics that gladden the spirit, and a grounded approach that keeps things very real.

Born and raised in the fertile musical region of Philadelphia, home of the Philly Soul Sound and the renaissance known as “neo-soul,” Temika attended the Philadelphia High School For Creative & Performing Arts. There she rubbed elbows with R&B crooners Boyz II Men, neo-soul song stylist Amel Larrieux, jazz bassist Christian McBride, Roots drummer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson and Roots bandmate Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, among others. The recipient of the first ever scholarship named for jazz great Ella Fitzgerald, Temika graduated from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and went on to hone her sound via live performances in the Washington, DC area and abroad.

With another long-form music project due by 2016, Temika Moore is poised to spread the message of Inspirational Soul wherever “real” music is savored and enjoyed. “It is important for me to create music that is authentic and evokes a spirit of inspiration and empowerment,” says Temika. “I create music that can lead to personal change.”
