Welcome to Sonny Moore's page :D
Sonny Moore was born on January 15, 1988 in Los Angeles, California and was raised by adoptive parents, Scott and Francis Moore. He moved to San Francisco when he was two and moved back to LA at the age of 12. Three years prior to moving to LA, he received his first guitar as a Christmas present. However, he didn't get into it until he was 12; by then he had taught himself how to play it and he would write his own songs all the time. Since he didn't have any friends when he first moved back to LA, he would make friends on AOL chatrooms. He met friends around his age and began going to shows in East LA, being one of the few white kids to go to rock shows in that part of the city.
He finally met Matt Good when he was 15 through MySpace. Matt told him that their guitar player had quit and that they were looking for a new one. Sonny then when out to Valdosta, Georgia where they were recording the new record. After the band heard him sing "Featuring Some of Your Favorite Words", they decided to make him the lead vocals. After that, the band wrote all the vocals with Sonny in just a week.
Sonny is now in good terms with his adoptive parents. His parents had told him he was adopted when he was 15, right before he joined FFTL. At first he had been really mad at them because they never told him, he had also first heard it through another person.
Since then Sonny and FFTL have decided to part ways in February of 2007, some say due to a "bad" year, but the real reason is unknown for now. Sonny announced that he would continue to make music as a solo artist. His first album, Bells, is set to be released sometime this year, and he has uploaded some recorded demos of the featured songs on his myspace. CLICK HERE Sonny also began his first ever tour since going solo. It started November 29, 2007- December 16 of the same year. "This tour is going to be a very special tour." Said Moore on his official Myspace. "Aside from the fact that there will be other incredible artist performing, it will also be my first tour after all the big changes."
Sean Friday (drums), Chris Null (guitar) and Aaron Rothe (keyboards) would be joining him on this adventure as well.
Sonny was featured in the AP (Alternative Press Magazine) Tour of 2008. The tour ran March 14- May 2 of 2008. After completing the tour Sonny just didn't get enough and had to do just one more show. It took place in Hollywood, Calfornia on May 17, 2008 at the Knitting Factory. Not only did Sonny get to tour with his "dream lineup, " but this show was also his first ever headlining show after departing from FFTL. Sonny is now currently recording his very anticipated album "Bells" which is set to be released sometime in 2009. There is also an EP being released aswell. Sonny has also revealed that he will be back on tour both on the East Coast and in Europe starting January 7- February 13, 2009. Seeing as we are not yet sure when the album is set to drop, we will just have to wait and see what happens next!
