Ian Moore — 8:30 PM
The word “legend” is showing up more and more in concert introductions and interviews, but the reference makes Ian Moore uncomfortable. Yeah, he’s proud of playing stadiums with the Stones, arenas with Dylan and ZZ Top, showing up in movies like Slingblade, and having numerous radio hits and tv performances. The awards are affirming and exciting; the records are an ambitious list, with a who’s who of producers and players. But it’s the soul that he’s chasing.
In a time when musicians have to think more like branding agencies, Ian’s music is uniquely original with his own unique gumbo of styles and sounds. At the same time, he has a deep respect for the past, and you can hear echoes of the lineage of the great Texas songwriters and guitarists who mentored him and helped shape his sound. Like them, he sees the music as a living, breathing, ever-changing form that shouldn’t be controlled, but left powerful and wild. He has lived on the creative edge, often confusing labels and companies, but continuously pushing himself sonically and lyrically into new terrains, and in doing so, has kept his creative spirit young and vibrant.
