Inspired planning, incredible talent, good timing, and diligent practice have culminated into an outstanding musical body of work. Justin Moses is well known as a musicians musician, a sought-after multi-instrumentalist, and backup vocalist. Today we celebrate as Justin deservingly steps into the spotlight with his first major self-produced album on Mountain Fever Records.
â€œOpening with a driving, grassified arrangement of Eric Claptonâ€™s â€œFall Like Rain,â€ we know weâ€™re in for a remarkable set of hot picking and singing. All four instrumentals composed by Moses are tastefully rendered. â€œTaxlandâ€ has Gypsyjazz flavorings, while â€œWatershedâ€ and â€œLocust Hillâ€ are engaging. â€œWise & Bornâ€ features Moses playing the Weissenborn guitar. Moses also co-penned a couple of the vocal tracks. â€œWalking to Lebanonâ€ incorporates Middle Eastern influences provided by a couple Iraqi percussionists. While he sings lead on a few numbers, he also features three great guest lead vocalists (Del McCoury, Dan Tyminski, Shawn Lane). Other musicians are Sierra Hull (his wife since 2017), Bryan Sutton, Cody Kilby, Barry Bales, Stuart Duncan, Michael Cleveland, Jason Carter, Ethan Jodziewicz and Jerry Douglas. Mosesâ€™ Fall Like Rain album has an intensity thatâ€™s remarkably powerful and impressively virtuosic. It also has considerable emotional content as Justin Mosesâ€™ sound paintings surprise us with various feelings, nuances, colorings and sensitivities.â€ â€“ (Joe Ross, Roots Music Report)
