Moore’s musical journey began at the age of 6 in the church playing the drums. He was always surrounded by music considering the fact that his mother sang and played the piano, and his uncle was the minister of music at his church, playing both the guitar and keyboard as well as being a music producer.
 
At the age of 11, Moore began studying the saxophone in the school band, and at the age of only 14, he played and recorded at the prestigious Carnegie Hall with the West Coffee Middle School Band. He entered Valdosta State University in fall of 2005 and is currently studying jazz piano and will graduate with a Bachelor's degree in music performance in early May.
 
Shortly after entering college, Moore studied electric bass, lead guitar, upright bass, plays the organ, drums, and keyboard synthesizers. In 2006, Moore started his own band with whom he has toured and worked for the past few years. He also has played in Jazz big band ensemble, Jazz combos, rock, and country groups. He not only possesses the skills and experience of being a band leader and music director, but he is also very versatile and has played several different genres and styles. Justin not only has learned the art of several instruments, but he also sings and produces music.
 
Moore cites his mother, Evangelist Brenda Moore, his grandmother, Pastor Queen Esther Henderson, Quincy Jones, Clive Davis, Rodney Jerkins, Brian Michael Cox, Herbie Hancock, Jaco Pastorius, Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, James Jamerson, Chick Corea, Michael Jackson, and Marcus Miller just to name a few of his musical and professional influences. The rising star plans to tour and do studio work and later become a musical educator to expound upon the beautiful art of music and to found his very own record label.
