What Happened To Gil Moore Of Triumph
Gil Moore has been a part of the music industry for over 40 years and gained recognition as a founding member of Triumph, one of Canada’s most well-known music groups. Their success even culminated in Madam Mayor Bonnie Crombie’s presentation of the ‘Keys to the City of Mississauga’ at the Canadian Walk of Fame opening ceremony. However, before joining Triumph, Moore was in a band called Sherman & Peabody, including Buzz Shearman of Moxy and Greg Godovitz of Goddo.
He co-wrote and contributed vocals to several Triumph songs and performed them live. Rik Emmett’s vocals and songwriting were more melodic, while Moore’s vocal and writing style was more blues and hard rock-oriented. On the last two albums, Moore also began contributing to the songwriting and singing of many softer, ballad-style songs. Besides his success in the band, Gil is also the CEO and Founder of Metalworks Studios, Metalworks Institute, and Metalworks Production Group in Mississauga.
Gil Moore’s Career In Triumph
The band has achieved many accolades during their time together. The band’s decision to split the songwriting credits equally among the three members of the band was how it worked for them as a group. During their tenure together, all the members took equal recognition for their creations and didn’t have a visible leader in their business matters.
Triumph’s concerts were renowned for their excellent musicianship combined with larger-than-life shows, bringing Canadian rock and roll bands to the biggest concert stages in North America and beyond. Their fourteen albums have received 25 Gold and Platinum certifications from Music Canada and RIAA in Canada and the United States, respectively.
Thanks to Triumph’s success with these records, the members were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2008. Towards the end, Emmet wanted to branch out, but the brand of Triumph was holding him back. Moore wanted to have a studio and work with other artists. The band ultimately separated when members decided to do their own thing with their music and careers.
Gil Moore Established Canada’s Biggest Recording Studio
Amid his music career, Gil Moore founded Canada’s most significant recording studio Metalworks Studios, in Mississauga, Ontario. Moore works as the CEO of Metalworks Studios, Metalworks Production Group, and Metalworks Institute. The studio has been around for over 30 years and saw numerous musicians such as Drake, Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas, Jonas Brothers, and many more.
Despite being a very prestigious studio that has hosted many different talents over the years, it hasn’t been able to give its best performance lately in terms of revenue. Furthermore, the musician’s net worth is around 3.5 million this year, which isn’t all that high, contrary to the music industry’s scale and accomplishments so far.
