"He doesn't fly with angels; he dances with devils" - Billboard El Sonido Nuevo, the new studio record from Austin-raised, Seattle-based singer-songwriter Ian Moore, his seventh, bridges the gap between the stylistic offshoots of his past few records and the guitar-slinging bravado that characterized his earlier, often bluesier, output. Backed by his new band, The Lossy Coils with Matt Harris (Oranger, Posies, Spiral Stairs) on bass and Kyle Schneider (Rocky Erikson, Johnny Goudie) on drums, forming this trio was a purposeful step into stripping away artifice and décor -- the songs are simple and direct. Moore's been steadily accruing fans by staying on the road doing everything from solo acoustic shows to full band gigs in the U.S. and abroad, and opening for his stylistic forefathers, including Paul Weller, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. And he’s done time as a sideman backing artists as divergent as Joe Ely, Roky Erikson and Jason Mraz. Moore has made hundreds of television appearances, from regional TV shows to the Today show and the Late Show With David Letterman to a one hour Direct TV special, while avid watchers of American Idol have seen contestants cover Moore’s songs “Blue Sky” and “Satisfied.” And the Austin Music Awards have repeatedly voted him Best Singer, Musician and Band. On El Sonido Nuevo, the blues and rock guitar he’s best known for is back, bolstered by confident songwriting and the absorbed echoes of those influences and stylistic adventures.
