Making sense of things isn’t always easy. Singer/songwriter Allison Moorer knows this, for sifting through life’s various complexities can make for a good song and even better story. Nearly 12 years ago, Moorer made an unforgettable introduction with her contribution of the thoughtful ballad, “A Soft Place to Fall,” to the soundtrack to Robert Redford-directed drama, 1998’s A Horse Whisperer, which later earned her an Academy Award nomination. From there, Moorer went on to carefully craft a long-lasting career receiving a Grammy nomination in 2007 for “Days Aren’t Long Enough,” a song co-written with husband, singer-songwriter Steve Earle.
Her latest release, Crows (Rykodisc) is wholeheartedly real -- its spirit is tangible and each lyric could belong to anyone. Moorer’s look inward is pure and without hesitation, all while she’s exploring what could exist outside of one’s soul.
