“It’s definitely a time record,” Moore said. “There are two songs that stand out to me as the most current. One is “The Medicine Man”, which I did with Old Crow Medicine Show, and the other is “Marvelous to Me”, born out of George Floyd’s accident in Minneapolis. There is that kind of thing and there are also things that feel good. I wanted to have a wellness record “.
While Moore is excited to play some new songs live, he admits it’s a balancing act.
“I’m happy to have some new songs to freshen up the set,” he said. “It’s really fun to do it, but I don’t play so many new things that people go crazy. Some people don’t want the new songs. If you give them too many things they don’t know, they’ll let you have them. You kind of mix new songs with good old stuff. You have to have the skills to present it to them so that they can have their ears, head and heart wrapped around it in a way they can (understand). “
In addition to headlining dates, Moore is also sharing US bills with Sheryl Crow, including a stop at Huber Heights.
“We are really excited to be doing a run with Sheryl Crow,” he said. “She is an iconic artist with many successes. People dig it and we dig it, so we’re just happy to be out there with them. I can’t go to Dayton much so I’m excited to go there. I can’t wait to be part of the Dayton landscape. “
Moore says he has other projects on the horizon, but is currently focused on tours and shows, which include dates in the US and Europe.
“I have a few things in the works, but I don’t want to say anything,” he said. “Right now, I’m really excited to be taking the new record on tour. I don’t really have an approach to life. I only take one thing at a time and then, when I’m done, move on to the next project. I love being present with whatever I am doing. I am very much in the present “.
