Nathan Moore has been a fixture at High Sierra since his 1999 debut fronting the band ThaMuseMeant. Since then he has been the loveable roaming minstrel, the one always with a song or a story to share be it as a solo artist in the troubadour sessions, at a casual campsite hang, or on stage with his bandmates in Surprise Me Mr. Davis. Last year Moore embarked on a four month Hippy Fiasco that began in S.F. and ended up at High Sierra. It all started when Nathan got stiffed by a promoter and turned the fiasco into a positive, which is so fitting for Moore, who always finds a gift in the garage. Instead of letting it get him down Moore and his rallied his social network and booked a tour on the fly. With friends and fans opening up their homes and backyards for house concerts up and down the coast, lemons turned into the sweetest of lemonades in no time at all. The initial Hippy Fiasco tour was such a blast that a few months later the threesome hit the road again, only this time they weren’t alone. Tagging along for the ride was a webcam recording every moment of the spontaneous tour, 24/7. The gang watching and chatting through the cast, who called themselves the Creepers, helped write songs, book gigs, find restaurants, fix the car, and help anyway they could. And at each show, attendees were encouraged to bring their own instruments and play along, forming the Moorechestra. By the end of the tour, 20 songs had been written, and it was time to make a record. Members of the Moorechestra from all around the country, some professional musicians, some not, offered up their own home recordings of themselves playing parts of the Fiasco songs. More than 400 tracks were received, edited, mixed and polished, and The Record was born. We can hardly wait to hear the latest gems he’s written.
