About Slim Moore & the Mar-Kays
Gary "Slim" Moore was born in 1964, in the urban community of Overbrook, Ont., his parents having recently immigrated to the area from southeastern Jamaica. Like many soul singers, he got his start singing in church, belting out hymns with his parents’ Pentecostal congregation from the early age of four. During his teens, he started his singing career in Montreal, Quebec, but it wasn't until after he moved back home that he hooked up with the Mar-Kays, a dynamite soul combo whose ranks included members that had honed their chops backing up soul royalty: Gladys Knight & the Pips, The Temptations, The Coasters, The Drifters, and The Platters, to name a few.
Sure enough, it was a match made in soul heaven, and by 2009, Slim Moore & the Mar-Kays were finally a reality. In October 2011, the group released their debut album, Introducing Slim Moore & the Mar-Kays, to the acclaim of soul lovers everywhere. The band hasn’t looked back since.
