Terry Wogan’s first BBC Theme Tune was commissioned in 1971 and after that Barbara was highly in demand. She is one of the first women composers to break into the very male-dominated world of the music industry. Barbara went on to form her own vocal group, The Barbara Moore Singers and they made many recordings for films including "Modesty Blaise" and "Bedazzled". Barbara famously sings her characterful wordless vocal solo on The Saint theme tune. Her voice can be heard across the classic Birds and Brass albums and rarities such as her début for CBS, A Little Moore Barbara with her own trio. Another big break for Barbara Moore was writing library music for De Wolfe Music Library and her Vocal Shades and Tones album is very rare and sought after. 2) Barbara Moore is a soul singer from Jackson, Mississippi.
She began singing and playing the piano at the tender age of ten. She authored many songs, including "Shortchange Lover" for Vernon Garrett and is the co-writer of "Cheatin Love" for Z. Z. Hill (Sony/CBS/Columbia Records) with Denise LaSalle (ABC/MCA Records) for whom she toured as her opening act for many years.
Other songs include her "Bad and Bold", "Drinking and Thinking", "Married Man Blues" "Giong To A Party" and "Leave My Man Alone" were top sellers in the UK and many parts of the the United States.
