Listen to Patsy Moore
Patsy Moore was born on the West Indian island of Antigua. She is the elder daughter of a North American career military father and Antiguan educator mother, and an award-winning, critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter who released two albums on the Warner Brothers label—Regarding the Human Condition (1991) and the flower child's guide to love and fashion (1993). Moore's family moved frequently when she was a child. As a result of that experience, her music has always employed diverse influences—including African and Caribbean rhythms, folk, soul, Latin, rock, pop and funk. She enrolled at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in 1982, and performed in a band throughout college—singing, writing songs and playing keyboards. While majoring in broadcast journalism and minoring in film and speech communications, she decided a career in music was of greater interest to her and began working towards that end. After singer/songwriter/music producer David Mullen (an acquaintance) asked her to sing backup on a demo, she started writing and singing with others. Moore was hired as a staff writer at the McSpadden Group and a record deal with Warner Brothers soon followed. Although numerous performers have covered her tunes since 1989, among the most notable is jazz world favorite Dianne Reeves—who, in 1999, recorded "I Remember" and "Goodbye" [on Bridges]. That same year, Moore joined keyboardist Charles Mims (Patrice Rushen, Tracy Chapman) in writing, arranging and producing Kwanzaa for Young People (and Everyone Else!) (Charphelia Records), a CD and educator resource guide which have garnered numerous commendations, including Teachers' Choice, Parent Council, Parents' Choice and Kids First awards. At the start of 2005, L.A.'s Walt Disney Concert Hall débuted 'Misa Justa', a symphonic Jazz mass by composer Eduardo Gutiérrez del Barrio, performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, a large choir, and a small group of soloists. That ambitious work, widely described as "a celebration of womanhood", features five sung poems written by Moore. Her full-length recording The Most Private Confessions of Saint Clair: Studio Renderings was released in April 2008. Due to a series of setbacks, which included the artist's longtime battle with grave illness, the eleven-song project took nearly five years to complete. Moore is currently set to release a concept album that is arguably her most ambitious musical solo work to date. Expatriates is a story told in eleven parts...all about exiles and émigrés, dissidents and diasporas, the banished and the escaped...an intimate rumination on immigrants (willing and otherwise) and the displaced or transplanted—literally and metaphorically—among us...who, indeed, are us.
