“Farthest Field,” a new CD from Daniel Martin Moore, was released Tuesday.
Daniel Martin Moore was born in Elizabethtown and still has family in the area.
His new album is a duet project with Joan Shelly and has many of the same traits as the ancient Chinese poems Moore admires.
He likes the poems’ sense of deep stillness and reverence, themes of travel and homesickness as well as matching landscapes with mood.
The album was “inspired by ‘Trawlerman’s Song’ by Vashti Bunyan and Robert Lewis,” Moore said in a news release.
“Joanie and I worked up a version of it for a tour we did last summer and we loved singing it,” he said. “We got so much positive feedback from it we starting thinking of other songs we might like to do and over time the idea for this record came to be.”
The album is released trough Ol Kentuck Recordings, a label Moore established in 2011.
While no local performances are scheduled, There are two opportunities to hear his music in Kentucky on Friday. There will be an in-studio performance at noon at WFPK in Louisville and another at 7 p.m. at CD Central in Lexington.
