Poor Moi

Poor Moi

Bringing intricate melodies woven through thought-provoking tales straight from the gut, Poor Moi simultaneously navigates Scottish indie-folk music while wandering the avenues of Americana.

This new collective, fronted by folk and roots singer-songwriter Memphis Gerald, brings together experienced session musicians who now branch out to write their own material, where notes of traditional Americana meet modern music innovation. Combining heart-rending lap steel and country guitar licks with synths, contemporary grooves and everyday tales of emotional turmoil in bleak and sodden landscapes, the sound is at once familiar and unmistakably current.

Poor Moi’s latest single ‘Tiny Circles’, now available for streaming on iTunes, Spotify and YouTube, is an all-too-relatable internal monologue for modern times. Sometimes you need to have a conversation with yourself to stay afloat and keep your head above water.

Their next single ‘Time’ is set for release in summer 2021.
