Ian Moore
Since his arrival as a solo artist in 1993 and his self-titled
debut on Capricorn Records, Texas Music star Ian Moore’s
journey has been one of perpetual forward motion and
constant change. The record included the hits, “Satisfied”
and “Blue Sky”, and even featured the track, “Harlem”,
which was made in to a music video by rap icon, Ice Cube.
Moore’s upcoming “Strange Days” EP was birthed
from Ian channeling all the influences from his childhood,
soul music and the blues, while carrying forward all the
hard-earned life lessons acquired on his journey that allow
him to infuse these songs with a depth that only comes
from years and miles. Moore’s ability to straddle genres
like a Neil Young or a Jack White is obvious.
By paying tribute to such luminaries as Curtis Mayfield,
Otis Redding, Aaron Neville (even covering “Hercules”),
and Sly Stone, Ian Moore can offer music politically
charged at times, as well as the heartfelt love song filled
with emotion and purpose.

Christopher Davis-Shannon's music is the essence of honest simplicity. Bringing together influence ranging from Fats Waller to Chet Baker, he creates an atmosphere that will instantly transport you back to jazz clubs, and speakeasies of the early 20th century. Not Content being labelled a traditionalist, he forges ahead breathing new life into old classics, weaving together a sound that is enjoyed by both young and old.

As a multi-Instrumentalist, songwriter, and educator, based in Philadelphia, Davis-Shannon maintains a steady tour schedule with his own music as well as a sideman for various acts. He brings to the stage not just the pure joy of music, but a vast knowledge of the history behind the songs that he holds close to his heart. His intricate instrumental work and plaintive vocals are infused with soulfulness which cannot be faked, and a respect for his predecessors which is rarely equaled.
