Moore, who has amassed over 54 million combined global streams across multiple platforms to date, was the Apple Music Up Next artist for August. The program is Apple Music’s monthly artist initiative geared towards identifying, showcasing and elevating rising talent.
“To be recognized by a platform that some of my favorite artists have been discovered on is a dream come true,” says Moore. “I grew up homeschooled and really religious, so I was constantly surrounded by people who thought I was dreaming too big… which is why it feels so surreal to be Apple Music’s Up Next Artist!!”
“Amelia is a unique talent and true artist in every sense of the word,” says Apple Music 1 host Travis Mills. “There’s something magical in her isolated upbringing that allows her to have unfiltered and pure creativity and concepts and it’s refreshing to see an artist who has made art purely from her perspective. You can hear and feel the bond between her and her collaborators in the songs. Expect to see BIG things in the near future for Amelia Moore.”
In her Apple Music Up Next exclusive short film, which is out now, Moore opens up about her move from the conservative town of Lawrenceville, GA to Los Angeles and how she forced herself to create after the entire world shut down due to COVID-19. “We’re forced to be inside and I could not let myself not be creative,” she says. “I started making these vision boards and was planning, planning and planning. Because I knew everything would happen and I wanted to be as ready as I could be.” In an interview with Apple Music’s Mills, Moore discusses growing up in her hometown, meeting Drake and how she found her community.

Sir Elton John recently played “crybaby,” a track from teaching a robot to love, on “Rocket Hour,” his Apple Music Show. The New York Times’ Jon Pareles praised the song as “rooted in the blues and in the ways a human voice can break and leap.” View Moore’s acoustic piano version of “crybaby” HERE and listen to the original version HERE.
Hailing teaching a robot to love as “arguably the strongest debut project any artist could wish to make,” Euphoria. said, “Amelia Moore single-handedly faceted a musical genre all her own appropriately adorned with avant-garde touches and a futuristic flair.” Dork observed, “Amelia Moore makes big music. Big dramatic, emotion-laden music with an expressive, dynamic future-facing flourish…There is a rawness and directness to the music on her debut EP.”
