Australian musician Shim Moore is  best known as being the front man and a founding member of the rock band Sick Puppies where he handled lead vocals, guitar, and a majority of the songwriting.  The band began to make its mark on the rock world and achieved commercial success with its 2009 album “Tri-Polar” which spawned radio hits “You’re Going Down” and “Riptide.”  Shim parted ways with the band back in 2014 and is stepping out on his own with the recent release of his first solo album.  His debut  record, the self-titled “Shim,” is a combination of hard hitting rockers and great melodies and  has already garnered a hit single with the song “Hallelujah.” BackstageAxxess had the opportunity to chat with Shim and get all the details on his new solo venture including tour plans, his sock puppet parody video and what the future may hold.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
