Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Alastair Moock has made a name for himself on the folk and Americana circuit, touring throughout the U.S. and Europe and playing renowned events like the Newport Folk Festival. When Moocks twins were born in 2006, he turned his focus to childrens music, releasing four award-winning albums for kids and families. In 2017, he returned to his singer-songwriter roots with his first grownup album release in ten years.
Moock's new self-titled album was produced by Mark Erelli (Lori McKenna, Josh Ritter trio) and features drummer Marco Giovino (Robert Plant, Buddy Miller) and bassist Marty Ballou (Peter Wolf, John Hammond Jr.). The end result was eleven shimmering new tracks that evoke a wide breadth of American musical textures early Nashville, country blues, Western swing, a tinge of gospel but, most of all, the kind of intimate storytellers approach at which Moock excels. On the albums release, Rich Warren of the nationally syndicated Midnight Special proclaimed, Moock reemerges as the best new, old singer-songwriter on the scene.
Like the folk and blues heroes to whom he often pays tribute in his shows Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt, Pete Seeger Moock makes little distinction between his audiences: Music is music, people are people. I just want to tell stories.
