Who is Davey Ray Moor?

Davey Ray Moor is an England-based songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer.

Moor was born in Beirut and raised in Australia, and now lives in England. He first came to musical prominence in Sydney as keyboard player, and occasional vocalist, for an independent rock outfit The Crystal Set and psychedelic band The Church. After recording four singles and one album with The Crystal Set, Moor left both the band and Australia for the United Kingdom where he began working at The Beatmasters' studio as a composer.

Moor later established a recording studio near Glastonbury where, for the next decade, he composed soundtracks for television, film, advertising and documentaries. In 1998, with partners Robin Brown and Zennor Alexander, Moor contributed the soundtrack to the BAFTA-winning Best Documentary for a Channel 4 "Dispatches" film. Other prizes included Best Short for an MTV ident at the New York Film Festival in 1993.

Clients across this period include Pepsi, Budweiser, Bacardi, Nintendo, Nissan, Remington, the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, MTV, VH-1 and Sky. All the while Moor continued to dabble in original music, eventually writing all the songs that were to become the launchpad for Cousteau.
