Moor Music is the name of Andy Moor's Podcast and Radio Show, aired on Digitally Imported [5] and Sirius XM Radio [6] in North America every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. Moor Music is known for its loyal 'cult' following and lack of talking over the music, giving listeners a one hour long mix every 2 weeks. The show, as with Andy's own musical style, takes on many different styles of Trance and Progressive music and is built as a reflection of what Andy's fans can expect to hear him play in his own sets.

We enjoy supporting new artists and working closely with them to develop and nurture their talent. 2009 will see the release of more artist albums, including my solo album, along with compilations and much more. We will be continuing on the path it has already started to create."
