Dallas Moore - The Countryt Music Mag (France) Interview

DALLAS MOORE : THE INTERVIEW

Many Thanks to JD, Sol Shine Touring ; Frank Keith IV, Sweat Heart PR and Brian DeBruler Sol Records

Country Music Mag : To began, may be a few words about your personal life before your musical career… Where and when are you born ?
Dallas Moore : Born in Cincinnati, Ohio August 7th 1970.

What was the kind of music you listen to when you was young and your favorite artistes ?
My favorites when I was young were Elvis Presley and Waylon Jennings.

When did you began to write and who were your main music influences?
I got my first guitar at age 16 and started writing songs right away as I learned to play. My main early influences were Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers as well as Bluegrass, Blues and Jazz Music.

We all know that this Pop/Hip-hop/Country from Nashville, Tennessee make think to some of us that traditional Country Music feels bad, but I do not think so… What is you point of view about this phenomena that made most of ''Country Music'' radio stations DJ's airing most of that kind of music rather than Trad Country ?
I don’t really pay any attention to the modern mainstream country radio. I prefer to seek out the music that I enjoy and support those stations and DJ’s who support our kind of music.

It seems that you are faithful to places (OmniSound Studio Nashville, once again) and people because you seems to be now use to work with producer Dean Miller who share his professional life between production and launching is own albums.

What did he gave you the other producers don't ?
Working with Dean Miller is the best of the best! We have built a great friendship and working relationship over the last 3 albums and I’m looking forward to continuing our work together on the next album. Dean is a great producer and has a way of making everyone comfortable and happy in studio with a great atmosphere of camaraderie.

When you are in studio, do you work with your touring bandmates or with sessions players ?
I use a combination of both. On THE RAIN my guitarist of 26 years Lucky Chucky aka Chuck Morpurgo joined us on Electric and Acoustic Guitars and we had most of the same studio players return from the last album including Guthrie Trapp on guitar, Steve Hinson on Pedal Steel, Jenee Fleenor on Fiddle, Gordon Mote on Piano and Organ, Lex Price on Bass , Chad Cromwell on Drums, Tim Galloway on Acoustic Guitar and Sweepy Walker on Harmonica.

Almost unbelievable to learn that most of "the Rain" songs came in one take or two. How can such a "miracle'' be possible? I suppose it come from the guys that played with you on this album… A few words about them ?
We cut all 10 songs for this album in one 4 1/2 hour session. We captured a very LIVE energy this time around and the Band really came together very organically to bring these songs to life.

In ''Every Night I Burn Another Honky Tonk Down'' song, I feel you sang almost the same way that Johnny Van Zant do. Is Lynyrd Skynyrd a band you like?
I’ve always been a big Skynyrd fan and we have even done a few shows together over the years!

This period of ''inactivity'' should be very weird to you use as you are those last years to 300 shows a year. What are the favorite things you do when you are at home ?
Yes if I’m at home I love to ride my Harley Davidson Road King and spend time with my Wife and Daughter.

Did you already tour in Europe and would you like to play in France when all that shit will be over and world turn again? (I send my magazine to any Country Music french festival's president so your answer could be useful ;-)
We have not toured outside of the USA as of now but we are in negociations to come play France in 2022’

Last question: what are your images about France and would you send a few words to your french fans ?
I am very much looking forward to coming to France to play music and meet our friends and fans!

 

WHAT A TALENTED GIRL!!!

Carry On Music

Debut album from this North Carolina native that immediately charms you by his warm voice and nice melodies. Great beginnings!

Not easy to put his music into a box. And, is it usefull? The easy way would be to classify him as Americana artist. But he already prooved us that he is already much more than that!
