Music, art and environmentalism meet in Mae Mooreâs return to solo recording

With her sophisticated jazzy folk-pop musical signature and her earthy, unadorned vocal style, Mae Moore scored nine top-forty hits, two Juno nominations and two SOCAN awards thanks to a string of high profile releases for Sony Music in the 90s. She also co-wrote a massive movie single in the form of âHeaven in Your Eyesâ from the Top Gun soundtrack. At the same time, the Algonquin-trained artist quietly launched a career as a landscape painter, racked up a loyal posse of patrons, and took up organic farming on a heritage orchard in British Columbiaâs Gulf Islands.

Now Canadian roots musicâs original earth mother is returning to her solo recording career after a ten year absence with a project that marries her many facets like never before.

Her new album, Folklore, is both a compelling work of Canadiana and a mature exploration of inner and outer landscapes, featuring Maeâs own artwork in the album package and released in conjunction with a companion coffee table book containing 19 of her paintings and a download code for the music. Mae will launch it with a cross-Canada tour by Via Rail train -- since the devoted environmentalist does her best to avoid flying.

Produced by Victoriaâs Joby Baker, the man behind the Cowboy Junkiesâ Renmin Park and Alex Cubaâs Latin Grammy-winning self-titled album, Folklore is the work of a seasoned artist embracing life in all its emotional complexity.

The opener, âTom Thomsonâs Mandolin,â is an ode to the 20th century Canadian painter who was known to dabble in music on the side. The title track speaks to oneâs responsibility for overcoming fear and taking charge of oneâs destiny. âWhen Love is Shatteredâ is a lament for a lost long-time friendship, while âWinter Songâ is a heartbreaking piece about watching a loved-one go through loss.

âOh Canada,â meanwhile, is Maeâs unique tribute to the country she has lived nearly all over, and âMy One and Only Oneâ is an homage to Maeâs husband and sometimes musical collaborator, Lester Quitzau.

Tender trumpet lines from Daniel Lapp, tasteful electric guitar licks from Marc Atkinson and jazzy piano and strings from Baker all give warmth to the arrangements.

In the years that have followed her major label chart successes, Mae has released a self-titled recording on Jann Ardenâs Big Hip label and recorded a collection of new songs and new versions of old songs for the American imprint, Paras. In 2004, she released the WCMA-nominated Oh My!, a duo project with Quitzau.

The forward to Folkloreâs companion art book was written by k.d. lang collaborator Ben Mink, a long-time fan of Maeâs paintings.
