MATT RED MOORE is an American rock artist from southeast Kentucky. Matt Red Moore's music is characterized by emotional southern guitar riffing, a pounding rhythm section, and most notably Red's grungy high vocal range.

The band's live show is a high-energy party spotted with light humor and gut-punching ballads. Audiences become quickly connected to the band to the point that they feel like they know the members on an almost personal level. The music is delivered in an unrefined form at every show.

Matt Red Moore has toured nationwide across the United States, from clubs to festivals such as Louder Than Life (KY), Floydfest (VA), Bristol Rhythm & Roots (TN), Mile of Music (WI), and many more.

EDGAR RED (2018) was recorded at Goldsmith Studio with Brian Cronin in Louisville, KY, mixed at Jackpot! Studios by Larry Crane in Portland, OR, and mastered in Louisville by Donnie Bott. The album features lead guitar work by Greg Martin (Kentucky Headhunters) on two songs and drum performance by Paul Culligan (Days of the New) on all seven songs.

The album also features a song written by Michael Bowman titled "Mississippi Driftin'". Artwork for album was created by Shannon Swope.

While EDGAR RED features a wide variety of genre, the band's sound today is most accurately exemplified by the songs "Orange Skill Billy" and "Carolina Lemonade", which have become staples of Edgar Red's live show.



"Kicking [Roostertail Music Festival 2019] into high gear with loud, rowdy style was [Matt Red Moore]. This young band has a sound unique to today’s rock bands. Their sound is more of a throwback to the 90’s grunge rockers with a splash of classic 70’s rock. Complete with guitar riffs and Viking horns, [Matt Red Moore] brought high energy to get the crowd warmed up for a night full of great rock and country music."

-The Oklahoma Review (2019)


"You don't find many songs that are so dedicated to rocking the f***ing house like [Matt Red Moore]'s "Carolina Lemonade". This is blues-based rock goodness to make the Led Zeppelin gods giggle in delight. This is music that needs muscle cars, strippers, beer, the American flag flying high, and an overflowing bucket of F*** You. [Red] can sing like a banshee, can rip a guitar into shreds, and will tear your heart into a million pieces with pure rock 'n roll majesty."

-Home Unknown (2019)
