JBM sat down with Jan Hall at the Folk Music Ontario conference to have an in-depth conversation about loss, spirituality, growth, his albums Lisbeth & Soul’s Journey Home and future music to come.
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).
