It takes a creative soul like Toronto native, Blaise Moore, to turn her text messages into a damn good revenge anthem, (Ugh, if only I knew how to sing – I’d have a kick-ass album by now!). Singer-songwriter Blaise Moore uses her lead single, “Friends”, and her seven track EP, to liberate her feelings on ex-boyfriend, Laurence. We’re taking her non-apologetic attitude as a sign that this 21-year old has no plans on slowing down now.
Born in Toronto, Canada, Moore spent most of her life in New Zealand where she attended public school and shortly after realized her true love for music. The title of her first EP, Laurence, is influenced exclusively by her London ex-boyfriend. As Moore claims he had led her on for months before breaking her heart, she uses seven tracks to give her final stand on the relationship, which we like to call, “The Roast of Laurence”.
So, what’s the story? Blaise and Laurence met online and began to quickly bond over music. They started Skyping on a regular basis before he decided to fly her out to London, which we know to be the beginning of her seven-part tale as her first track is strategically named, “LGW, (which is the airport code for Gatwick airport in London). The two met and there was an instant connection and continued her stay in London to get to know him better. But, when she flew back home, trouble started because she never heard from him again. Driven by her affection for him, Moore decided to move to London to be with him, only to realize that he wasn’t as serious about the relationship as she was – and thus inspiring the lyrics and visuals for for “Friends”. Moore’s ghostly soft vocals are backed up by an even eerier tempo, but don’t get me wrong, her message to him comes out crisp and clear.
Moore’s unique sound already has locals buzzing and for a young female artist trying to make it big, this EP is a huge step in the right direction. Her music has influences from hip-hop and trap to electronic genres. She’s said to be working on new projects with Interscope Records, so we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for her work. As for ‘Laurence’, Moore says that they still keep in touch….as Friends.
Blaise will be the opening act for The Japanese House on their North American tour, which kicks off February 21st in Columbus, Ohio.
