Joseph Patrick Moore was born in Knoxville, Tn., on October 1, 1969. He was first introduced to music by his parents and sisters, who encouraged him to study music through the public school's band program. At the age of 7 Moore began his musical studies on alto saxophone. His band director, Chet Hedgecoth, was an early mentor giving young Joseph words of wisdom, practice tips, and encouragement throughout his school years. Upon entering high school, Joseph began playing drums in marching band while continuing his saxophone studies. In his sophomore year he picked up an electric bass and was immediately transfixed by the rumble and thunder of the instrument. Soon thereafter the saxophone and drums took the back seat against his passion for the bass. The need and thirst for instruction led the emerging bassist to Rusty Holloway, an alumnus of Woody Herman and instructor at The University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
