Young and old souls alike have no trouble finding themselves in the plain spoken lyrics of James Moors. After bringing an audience into the present moment with his midwestern sincerity and ungaurded humor, James unveils the layers of our common experiences to expose the magic that lies beneath them. Often compared to such luminaries as Greg Brown, Peter Himmelman and John Hiatt, James paints the landscapes we live in.
"Hearing Shawn Colvins'' - Live 88 on a frigid late night drive through northern Minnesota, warmed me from the inside." That''s how Moors remembers being bit by the songwriting bug. Performing under the stage name of Sterling Waters, James began criss crossing the country in 2000. He has released three CDs under the Sterling Waters moniker and has had the good fortune to share the stage with Chris Smither, Richard Shindell, Willy Porter, Peter Case and many others. In 2001 James was awarded the emerging artist grant from the McKnight Foundation which funded his most recent Sterling Waters recording, Let it Go in 2002.
In an effort to live more presently and simplify his life a bit James has shed the stage name and relishes the new begining. Now a family man with two young girls, carefree travels have given way to a path with a deeper purpose and Moors'' songwriting has been a major beneficiary. With the release of his forthcoming CD Hush, James Moors entices the inner cynic out of the shadows to bask in the glow of the present moment.
Hush boasts performances from Lisa Germano(Bowie,Neil Finn,U2), Marc Perlman (Jayhawks, Golden Smog) and Ben Wisch (David Wilcox, Marc Cohn). Produced in part by Canada''s secret weapon, Danny Michel, Hush promises something deeper from the inner world and delivers it through intimate performances and well crafted songwriting.
