This week’s New Release show features an interview with Toronto singer/songwriter James Bruce Moore recorded at the 2015 Folk Music Ontario conference. James has just released his second album, the gorgeous “Soul’s Journey Home”. We also include a selection of some of the great music we’re received in the past few months.
Toronto-based singer/songwriter James Bruce Moore has just released his second album, the mystical and soul-stirring “Soul’s Journey Home”. Whereas his well-received debut, 2012’s Lisbeth (named after his late wife) featured a folk, country, and jazz palette; the beautiful and inspiring new album is more folky but includes the prominent use of a nine-piece string section, with arrangements by Aaron Davis. The album was produced by renowned bassist George Koller (Loreena McKennitt, The Shuffle Demons) with musical support from, among others, Steve Briggs, Denis Keldie, Mark Mariash, Kirsten Rea, and David Piltch. James Bruce Moore stopped by our mobile studio at the Folk Music Ontario conference to chat about the new album. Music: James Bruce Moore “Soul’s Journey”, “Roy Benavidez” and “Sigh Unto The Universe” from “Soul’s Journey Home” (2015, Self).
