Shim Moore Talks New Music, And Launching A Solo Career

When you have a bankable band and mass popularity via hit songs like the band Sick Puppies has had in their career, it’s hard to step aside and start over. That is exactly what Shimon “SHIM” Moore did when he left that band in 2014. But his story was just beginning, as he has plotted a return. Now he is back in the spotlight as a bandleader and a true solo artist in every sense. He released the incredible, rocking new song ‘Hallelujah’ this past spring, with its hilarious accompanying music video. The new song definitely reminded people that Shim is an artist to watch with a lot more to say. Armed with a D.I.Y. spirit harkening back to his early days in bands, he is preparing his first solo album and promises that ‘Hallelujah’ is just a small taste of what fans can expect. The band recently wowed fans at Rock On The Range and promises more touring and more new music later this year and into 2019. Ghost Cult caught up with Shim by phone recently and he sounded humble to still have the fans by his side, and upbeat about the future. He has an unquenchable positivity that you could feel just over the phone. However, he is also hungry with something to prove, and looking forward much more than at his past. Continue reading
