Possessing little more than a deep, gravelly voice and a three-song demo produced by a childhood friend, an avid outdoorsman left the comfort of his Michigan home and the security of the family business to pursue the long-shot of making it in Nashville’s music industry. Twenty-five years and more than 20 albums later, Grammy and Dove award-winning singer/songwriter Geoff Moore can look back now knowing he made the right decision -- hearing God’s voice through the clamor of life.
While most of his career was spent recording and touring with his band The Distance, Geoff decided to go the solo route in the late ‘90s, returning to his earliest roots in music. One thing remains consistent in all his work -- authentic, timely messages based upon a real relationship with God.
For Geoff, listening to God is an active endeavor. In addition to time spent in study, prayer and the discipline of “being still,” he also finds God communicating through his personal, professional and ministry relationships. Throughout his career, he has mentored young artists, providing the first national touring opportunities for Audio Adrenaline, Out Of Eden, and Big Tent Revival among others and managing The Afters, Echoing Angels, and Storyside:B. But nowhere does Geoff more clearly hear the voice of God than through his ministries to the least of these. Geoff is a passionate advocate for Compassion International, Show Hope, and Buckner International.
Geoff shares, “I believe this is what God has called me to do: to write and record songs that make Him known, and then travel and sing those songs, using the platform that they create to be a voice for the poor and oppressed who have no voice.”
