Jump to “More items of this artist”

Blood ist nicht nur Moorer's persönlichstes Werk, sondern auch ihr wichtigstes. Blood steht für sich allein als Gesamtwerk, aber das Album dient als Begleitwerk zu ihrer erwarteten Autobiographie Blood; Die am 29. Oktober über Da Capo Press, einen Imprint von Hachette Books, veröffentlicht wird. Blood ist ein detaillierter Bericht über die Kindheit von Moorer und ihrer Schwester (Grammy Award Gewinnerin Shelby Lynne), die in einem unruhigen Zuhause in Süd-Alabama aufwuchsen, und wo ihre Eltern 1986 Selbstmord begingen. Trotz aller Schwierigkeiten gab es immer die Musik. Das Album Blood ist eine Auswahl von zehn Tracks, die sie direkt mit den Menschen, Emotionen, Traumata und Gemütszuständen verbindet welche in den Memoiren eloquent beschrieben werden.


The Grammy- and Academy Award- nominated singer-songwriter's haunting, Blood is not only Moorer's most personal and revealing work to date, but also her finest and most important. Blood stands on its own as a complete work, but the album serves as a companion piece to her anticipated autobiography, Blood: A Memoir, being released on October 29th through Da Capo Press, an imprint of Hachette Books.Blood: A Memoir is a detailed account of Moorer and her sister's (Grammy Award winner Shelby Lynne) childhood growing up in a troubled home in Southern Alabama, which ended with the well-documented murder-suicide of her parents in 1986. Much of what the public has known about the tragic event begins and ends there. For years Moorer had avoided going into the traumatic details of the abuse, alcoholism, intimidation, poverty and neglect, that existed prior to the deaths, and for good reasons which she addresses in the memoir. Moorer also addresses the fact that there was so much more to her family than tragedy, darkness and what people thought they knew. There was love, there was a protective mother, there was the bond of sisterhood and there was music. There was always music.The album Blood serves as a song cycle featuring ten tracks that directly connect to the people, emotions, trauma, and state of mind that are all detailed so eloquently in the memoir.
