Denai Moore | Songwriting | ICMP London

Denai Moore is a graduate of the Cert HE in Songwriting in 2013. After starting at the ICMP, Denai signed a publishing deal with the new Hard Livings label licensed through Because Music, who also represents artists such as Metronomy and Django Django, and has won her famous fans like Plan B.

The launch of her first EP ‘Saudade’ has followed her supporting folk giant Iron and Wine on the European leg of his tour and Tom Odell at his sell-out show at Somerset House.

After playing David Lynch’s famous ‘Silencio’ bar in Paris in 2013, Denai appeared on the bill at Green Man Festival in Wales and played the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds Festival. This led to frequent air play on Radio 1 and has also won presenter Huw Stephens over as a big fan. She has gone on to gain a slot on the coveted Later with Jools Holland which aired on BBC 2 in November 2013.

Since then, Denai has become a regular fixture at festivals, including Glastonbury in both 2014 and 2015, following the release of her debut album 'Elsewhere' in March of 2015.  She also guested on on SBTRKT's 2014 album Wonder Where We Land. 

After some time away writing, Denai returned with the 2017 single 'Trickle' winning legions of new fans and featuring on some of the biggest music magazines, such as okayplayer and Clash magazine.  

Denai released her second album, 'We Used To Bloom' on June 2017, containing the new single 'Does It Get Easier', which was premiered by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and featured in a Red Bull live session. She also recently released the brilliant video to her track, 'Desolately Devoted' .
