Her music is at once sensuous, romantic and loving. Passion, intimacy, and warmth are the ingredients she uses to create
just the right vibe, the perfect mood for love. Her own heartfelt compositions, jazzy grooves, and soulful ballads are her stock in trade. When she performs, her music comes alive with vibrancy and energy.
She is strikingly beautiful: elegant, yet accessible.
A minister's daughter, Chante Moore came of age in San Francisco and San Diego, singing along to gospel records and setting her own poetry to
George Duke and
Lee Ritenour jams. In her teen years, Moore decided to pursue a career in music after being inspired by the reaction she got to her role in a high school production of The Wiz.
"A Love Supreme" is the important next step in Chanté Moore's ever-growing career, a natural musical
progression from her gold debut, "Precious." The first release from Louil Silas, Jr.'s MCA-affiliated label, "Precious" spawned two Top 5 R&B hits: "Love's Taken Over" and "It's Alright." Tracks like "As If We Never Met," "Candlelight and You" (a duet with
Keith Washington), and
"Who Do I Turn To" helped to create a foundation for Moore, ensuring that "Precious" stayed on Billboard's R&B charts for more than a year.
The public's response to Moore's sensuous blend of pop, soul, and jazz resulted in some remarkable achievements for the
vocalist. In addition to appearances on "The Tonight Show With
Jay Leno," "The
Arsenio Hall Show," "Showtime at the Apollo," "The Essence Awards" and the 1993 "Soul
Train Music Awards," Moore was featured in the first-of-its-kind one-hour BET special, "Candlelight and You: Chanté Moore
European audiences have also reacted to Chante Moore with instant approval. She performed at the Montreux Jazz
Festival in 1992 and at the prestigious MIDEM convention in 1993 in Cannes, France, during a special tribute to Marvin Gaye. Readers of
Britain's esteemed Blues & Soul magazine voted Moore 1993's "Best Female Vocalist" and "Most Promising Newcomer," and named "Precious" the year's "Best Album," an unprecedented trio of achievements
for a new artist. Her 1993 performances in the U.K. won Moore immediate official acclaim and established a firm following for her in Great Britain.
In the U.S., a 1993 summer tour allowed Chante Moore the opportunity to show off her skills as a live performer.
"I learned a lot being on the road," she recalls. "I got to see what I could do to really win people over. It was challenging and very exciting I had a great time making my music come alive!" Guest appearances in both 1993 and 1994 on the annual "Divas Simply Singing" show in Los Angeles became further highlights in a two-year period filled with accomplishment and success.
