Lathan Moore......has been singing since the age of four. Growing up in a small coal mining community where his father worked the mines for 35 years gave Lathan an appreciation for hard work and perseverance. After graduating from Harrisburg High School in 2001, Lathan joined a country Gospel Quartet called “Eastern Sky” to sing baritone and toured for two years throughout the Mid- East and Ohio Valley. Lathan also was a member of the Reliance Quartet from Paducah, Kentucky, where he sang lead. Lathan attended Southeastern Illinois Junior College on a Music Scholarship in 2001

Lathan was very active in the theater and performing arts and played the lead roles in “Phantom of the Opera,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “My Fair Lady,” “Annie,” “The Grinch,” “Annie Get your Gun” and “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” Shortly after opening for the Gaither Vocal Band, Lathan made a move to Plainview, TX where he attended Wayland Baptist University studying music and theatre. While in Texas, Lathan performed with several local musicians and continued to develop his interest in country music. After completing a year of college, Lathan returned to Harrisburg, IL to work in the mines in order to save enough money to move to Nashville, Tennessee so he could pursue his career as a country music singer.
In 2004, Lathan entered the Southern Illinois Regional Colgate Country Showdown in Carmi, Illinois and finished in 2nd Place. As a result, he was contacted by Chelsea Studios in Nashville, TN to do some recording and for 6 months, traveled back and forth to Nashville recording demo’s. In 2004, Lathan finally had saved enough money to make the move from Illinois to Nashville and began performing in local venues and private corporate events. Lathan plays the trumpet, trombone, tuba, piano, guitar and is currently working on developing his songwriting craft. Lathan has recently released his debut album, Love In Your Life, on Blue Steel Records.
