"Dead Bird Songs is an untraditional album from a modern singer-songwriter, and if you have been lucky enough to have the chance to see Eric Moore perform live you will know what I mean. Rare is it that one man with a guitar can hold you spell-bound while you're sitting in a noisy bar. The room banging with suds and somewhere Eric playing quietly like he just doesn't care...Or maybe you were there on the nights when he was the loudest one of all, screaming songs that once were just a whisper. I've seen him play open-mics, subways, practice-space shows, clubs, delicate coffee houses, benefit concerts, and more
Highly emotional, the songs of Eric Moore are like none that you have heard before. Unusual melodies twist among broken notes of the guitar leaving you alone before a very sad and thoughtful performance. Perfect for long drives and sentimental afternoons this cd will have you replaying tracks before you've finished your first listen.
Lots of influences here...lets face it, he's a singer-songwriter so count in the 70's heroes Cohen, Croce, Drake, Stevens, early Taylor...but there's more going on than that...Try modern avant-garde projects like Dead Can Dance from England, Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy)etc...
This past year also saw Eric's music exhibited in a documentary short shown at the Sundance film festival...
Since the production of Dead Bird Songs, Eric and his girlfriend (who also performs on the album) have moved to Alaska...Formerly they were well known among the music scene of San Francisco playing venues like The Hotel Utah, Canvas Cafe, Red Devil Lounge, Voodoo Lounge, Cafe du Nord to name a few as well as beneifts and the infamous short-run of Circus Head that brought together some strong names- John Swerden, Jonah Daniel and Will Franken.
The cd is worth the money and your time if you're looking for good original music and tired of hearing the same thing over and over. But be warned that Eric performs rarely though when he does it could be anywhere along the west coast...Ask to be added to his email list by getting in touch with him through his website...and you will be notified when he's playing again."
p.s. if you listen to "African Eyes" afterwards visit the website of Susan Gilbert, for whom the song was written, whose Project Jambo connects children in the U.S. with kids in Kenya in a cultural exchange program...
