Nathan Moore
Dear Puppeteer

Nathan Moore - Dear Puppeteer

Dear Puppeteer is a dispatch in 12 songs from Nathan Moore to fear, mortality, the righteous, the jailor, lost love and lost time - or more simply put, the puppet masters. 'Gonna write a letter, dear puppeteer, I don't want to play here, I don't wanna stay here,' he sings on the title track. From this opening plea it's apparent that a restless spirit is at work.

Nathan's warm finger-picked acoustic guitar, ghostly harmonica gales, ancient ukulele meditations and tobacco-stained vocals are inhabited by a poet seeking something more, while giving song to humanity in all its beauty and sadness.

The album was recorded around Nathan's Staunton, VA hometown with producer, engineer and guitarist Bryan Elijah Smith, as well as out west at his old Santa Fe, New Mexico stomping grounds, Frogville Studios. It follows 2009's well-received EP, Folk Singer. Nathan Moore, who first came to national attention with ThaMuseMeant, is also currently a member of the revered American rock band Surprise Me Mr. Davis.
