Jay Moore won’t let this business leave him feeling Numb

I have known Jay Moore for a few years and have seen him transform a few times as he navigates this business we call show. I know he has learned a few tough lessons but as with any of us, these lessons allowed him to grow and find new directions. He is always willing to try new things, to reinvent himself when necessary, and to show others that it is all ok as long as you don’t give up. Recently, we had a little chat about it and we decided it would be good to share it with you all.

Q: You’ve had experience with some reality TV with Myrtle Me Jay. What was that experience like for you?

Jay Moore: My overall experience with Myrtle Me Jay was like a rollercoaster ride. There were happy moments, sad moments and moments that were really hard to watch. Overall, it was like therapy to me and it’s made me a stronger person.

You can subscribe to  BawnTv to catch Myrtle Me Jay here:

You can find out more about the show on their Facebook page too. 

Q: What advice would you give to someone who was thinking about doing reality TV?

JM: I would tell them to be as authentic and real as possible. Don’t be afraid to express yourself just because a camera is following you around. People want to see the real you and they want to be able to connect. Also, if there’s any skeletons in your closet, more than likely they will be exposed..so brace yourself.

Q: What was the most valuable thing you learned from that experience?

JM: True friendship. During the process of the show I learned who was planning on being in my life, as a friend, for life and who was only there for a temporary time. When it comes to my friends I value them, Respect them, want the best for them and love them. Overall, the experience taught me the true meaning of friendship and how to overcome hurdles you may have with certain friends. If the friendship is meant to be it will survive the storm.

Q: If you were to write an autobiography, what would the title be?

JM: This sounds cheesy but I would call it, “The MOORE I Know.” Lord that is so cheesy.

Q: You also have interest in the music business. What draws you to music?

JM: I absolutely love all kinds of music. It honestly started with me as a kid singing in chorus and also when entering junior high learning to play the trumpet.. I love the sounds, rhythms and the fact that with music you can truly express yourself in anyway that you feel comfortable. Music has always been my escape during the good and rough times of my life.

Q: What artists would you like to collaborate with?

JM: Even though this will probably never happen, I’d love to collaborate with Calvin Harris or even David Guetta. I love their beats and they have worked with everyone in the industry basically.

Q: How do you describe your music style?

JM: It is different, unique and risky (which I love). These days it’s so hard to be original because there are so many influences out there that we idolize and look up to. I always try to make my style different and something that catches the listeners ear.

You can check out Jay’s song, Numb here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/numb-single/id670375416

Q: Do you write your own songs?

JM: I write and produce about 95% of all my songs.

Q: What is one thing you absolutely cannot live without and one thing you wish we could all live without?

JM: I can not live with out my faith and I could definitely live without hatred from other people.
