Eli Moore’s many pop gems stack up modestly, like a nice pile of leaves to lie in. Moore often works alongside his wife, Ashley Eriksson, in a number of pop projects, most notably K Record's stalwarts LAKE. Sleepy and sweet, his voice glides over various gentle modes of chamber arrangements, subdued funk and slow-grooving soul. Moore's songs are best known for a breezy and earthy feel, but his lyrics are never afraid to tangle with doubts and defeats. In fact, it’s these dour realities that bring out the most resilient declarations of positivity in his catalog; hard-won sentiments that always stand firm as oak.
