Since his arrival as a solo artist in 1993, with his self-titled debut on Capricorn Records, Moore’s journey has been one of perpetual forward motion and constant change. The record included the hits, “Satisfied” and “Blue Sky”, and even featured the track, “Harlem”, in which he made a video with rap icon, Ice Cube. Coming out of Austin, Texas, growing up sharing the stage with the likes of Joe Ely, Willie Nelson, Albert King, Doug Sahm, Townes Van Zandt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Charlie Sexton, and Doyle Bramhall II, his first three major label efforts placed him in the blues rock lane that over time and that label didn’t sit entirely well with an artist with such vast influences and creative ideas. Internally, Austin was open-minded and filled with big ideas, but outside of town people had a monochromatic view, and all musical roads led to Stevie Ray Vaughan at that point in time.
Paying tribute to such luminaries as Curtis Mayfield, Otis Redding, Aaron Neville (even covering “Hercules”), and Sly Stone, Moore offers music politically charged at times, as well as heartfelt love songs filled with purpose. Collaborating with the likes of Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Brownout, The Sword) in Austin, Texas, and Jim Greer (Galactic, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Macy Gray) in his birthplace, Berkeley, California.
