Overview

Dave Moore has culled through hundreds of songs he wrote during nearly ten years away from recording to produce this gem. Moore's rough-edged baritone invites you to enter his world on the opening cut, "Mr. Music" -- and a long, strange ride it's been for the Iowa songwriter. Raised in the heartland, seasoned by sojourns in Latin America and the western U.S, he writes songs flavored by his work as oil rigger, plumber's assistant, teacher, and apprentice to a San Antonio accordion master, not to mention bandleader for "Prairie Home Companion." From the ominous warning of "Sharks Don't Sleep" and the cautionary vignettes of "Midnight," to the joyful "Magic Dust," Moore's bluesy take on Americana resonates with the sound of a man who has traveled the roads of which he sings.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jeff Burger
On his first album in six years, frequent Greg Brown sidekick Dave Moore delivers a terrific 10-song set that's bound to appeal to much the same audience Brown reaches. Moore has everything going for him here-warm, expressive vocals; great backup; a fine, understated production by Brown guitarist/producer Bo Ramsey; and, last but not least, a diverse collection of introspective homespun material. On songs like "Big Drafty House," and "Painting This Room," Moore displays the rare ability to convey old, universal feelings in new and highly personal ways. He manages to be different and clever without ever lapsing into pretension or cliches.
