Since his arrival as a solo artist in 1993 and his self-titled debut on Capricorn Records, Texas Music star Ian Moore, has been on a journey of perpetual forward motion and constant change. That record included the hits, “Satisfied” and “Blue Sky”, and even featured the track, “Harlem”, which was made in to a music video by rap icon, Ice Cube.
Moore’s upcoming “Strange Days” EP was birthed by Ian channeling all of the influences from his childhood, soul music and the blues. All the while, carrying forward the hard-earned life lessons acquired on said journey- that allow him to infuse these songs with a depth that only comes from many years and countless miles. Moore’s ability to straddle genres like a Neil Young or a Jack White is obvious.
By paying tribute to such luminaries as Curtis Mayfield, Otis Redding, Aaron Neville (even covering “Hercules”), and Sly Stone - Ian Moore can offer music politically charged at times, as well as the heartfelt love song filled with emotion and purpose.
