Style

Moore's first solo release was the 2007 "It's About Time" EP which was described as upbeat, layered, complex, and lush. Since changing his stage-name to Bearcraft, Moore's output has largely been of the Electronic style. Red Hot Velvet described his debut album Yestreen as being of the genre synth folk.

In April 2009, Moore announced he would be releasing music and performing with the name "Bearcraft", explaining that this signalled a shift in his style. Following the announcement a Myspace page was set up, containing new songs, all of which were synth-based. Bearcraft’s debut album, Yestreen, was released on 16 August 2010 through Hottwerk Records, and had positive reviews in the music press.
