ABOUT NATHAN MOORE- A bearer of the coveted Telluride Troubadour Award (2009), Nathan Moore is a pioneer of modern day troubadouring and a wellspring of songs like you wouldn’t believe. His love of poetry, songs and mischief has shaped his colorful, prolific career. He’s a founding member of both ThaMuseMeant and Surprise Me Mr. Davis, two bands that have toured the country extensively.

 Between his solo career and his bands, Nathan has released 27 albums. From storytelling songwriter to rock band frontman (with a dash of magic here and there), Nathan has done it all with a disarming honesty and lyrical revelry that few could pull off.

The versatility of Moore’s catalogue and performing experiences is hard to fathom and he’s shared the stage with an impressive list of talented artists (My Morning Jacket, Rickie Lee Jones, Greg Brown, Chuck Berry, Rambling Jack Elliot, Cheryl Crowe…) at venues and festivals all over the country. After touring relentlessly in the 90s and co-founding a small independent record label in Santa Fe, NM in 2001, Nathan returned to his roots in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 2006 to launch a solo endeavor.

ABOUT MAGIC IN THE OTHER "An intelligent music listener’s dream. The music is danceable but also worthy of focus to see their communication in real time. It is something special to bear witness to the birth of a band that could potentially take a scene by storm, you feel like you’re in on something, witness to something great.” - Glide

Magic In The Other was born out of the idea that it is in the unknown where the most potent ground lays for magic and discovery. It is from this notion that this fresh-on-the-scene trio from Oakland, CA sets out to connect with their listeners, creating a mentally-stimulating, emotionally-resonate, highly-danceable, and distinctly-transformative experience where everyone feels just a little more magical.  MITO assembled in early 2017, consisting of three in-demand Bay Area veterans - drummer and bandleader Ezra Lipp (Phil Lesh & Friends, Sean Hayes), bass player Steve Adams (ALO, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers) and guitar wizard Roger Riedlbauer (Jolie Holland, Mercury Falls). Over the course of just a year, the trio has honed in on a contagious chemistry that beams with personality and is incredibly engaging to watch. It may be difficult to pin the band down to a specific genre, however, traces can be detected. Be it the rhythmic sophistication of jazz and West African music, the unrestrained spirit of rock n’ roll, the compositional approach of western classical music, or the improvisatory intensity of North Indian ragas, the magic of the band ultimately lies in the skilled fusing of all of the above (and beyond) to create a sound fresh and unique all its own. In the fall of their break-out year, while building a buzz on stages around the Bay Area and garnering their first set of loyal fans, Ezra, Steve and Roger crowd-funded nearly $20k to put toward the making of their first full-length album. Recorded at the legendary Tiny Telephone Studios, the debut captures the band’s first batch of live-tested material, and is augmented by a few of their close musical friends as well as other fun studio surprises. Magic In The Other is aiming for a late summer/early fall release this year with subsequent touring to celebrate the completion of one chapter and the unknown of the next.

Moore’s 2007 solo album, In His Own Worlds, spent 21 weeks on the Roots Music Radio Charts, and his evocative one-man show that is an innovative combination of music, banter and magic has wowed audiences and garnered critical praise from coast-to-coast ever since. His two records Folksinger and Dear Puppeteer are on The Royal Potato Family Label, and comprise some his best work.

 One music writer calls Moore’s performance on Folk Singer “…as proficient as Ryan Adams, as lyrical as Jeff Tweedy and as charming as a deadbeat cartoon character that wakes up, rubs his belly and leans into the day” (Relix Magazine) As prolific as ever, lately Nathan has been recording and releasing his own albums from his home in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
