We The People 

Eddie Moore, bandleader of We The People, is the 2016 Charlotte Street Generative Performing Arts Award recipient. He formally began his musical journey at Texas Southern University where he earned a Bachelors in Arts in Piano Performance. Raised in Houston, Texas, Moore is a lifelong musician traversing a number of bands and styles before going back to school to get a Masters in Arts from the University of Missouri-Kansas City under the direction of Jazz Master Bobby Watson.  

Diversity and inclusiveness have become to define Moore as an artist. His expansive sensibilities have allowed him to perform and record with such distinctive artist such as Bobby Watson, Pam, Watson, Logan Richardson, Maurice Brown, Krystal Warren, Matt Otto, Brandon Draper, Andre Hayward, Tivon Pennicott, IamNobodi, and Dominique Sanders, and 77 Jefferson. 

Nominated as Best Soloist, and Jazz Band (Eddie Moore & The Outer Circle) by Pitch Magazine. Moore’s music is a celebration of the integral differences in musical viewpoints. "The Freedom of Expression", Moore's debut album as a leader was given 3.5 stars from Downbeat jazz magazine while reaching national and international acclaim. This album incorporates elements of soul, r&b, and hip-hop into his take on contemporary jazz.  "Moore's compositions exude a sophisticated soulful elegance that create a tastefully fulfilling venture into a range of dynamic pieces, with the musicianship to match.” – Downbeat Magazine
