"Starry Sounds" Reviews

"Considering this isn’t my first…or second…or third time listening through this 10-track sonic voyage, I can safely report this album is packed with excellently arranged compositions that are rich with melody, full of emotion and played by a team of masterful musicians who know a thing or two about engaging chord progressions, the importance of tension and release, and how to consistently deliver that high level of song crafting quality from beginning to end.  Whether it’s the pristinely produced acoustic guitar in Meet In The Middle, the sweet steel guitar in Ebb and Flow, the vibrant violin in Lapis Largo, the catchy clarinet in Starting Again or any other sonic high points throughout the album, Todd and his creative team present us with a wide range of musical styles which have been seamlessly woven into an uplifting tapestry of highly enjoyable art."

"“Starry Sounds” is a beautiful, full-length album from singer and songwriter Todd Warner Moore. As an expat based in Hong Kong, Todd has a really diverse musical background, and a unique sonic vision. He is all about adopting a “less is more” approach on this album. In fact, these songs consist of simple elements to achieve big sounding mixes and meaningful tracks, which connect to the audience on a much deeper level."

"Moore brings the goods again with Love & Change, a full length that spans 44 minutes with a stellar tracklist of 13 songs that all bring something different to the table. The Kansas City native crafted a collection of songs of beautiful songwriting and music mastery."

"Love & Change is a record of peace and tranquillity that has a strong edge when needed. Moore has used his songwriting abilities to subtly change his style and allow the record to grow and evolve by itself as the record progresses. The Americana sound is perfectly complemented by the floaty atmosphere, and allowing the weighted backing vocals to seep into the forefront now and again has given the music more depth. Love & Change is a fine record that’s well produced and perfectly weighted."

"I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this latest release by Todd Warner Moore. I became a fan with his last album, but this one takes it up a notch in all categories. "

"With lyrics that focus heavily on the art of storytelling first meetings, tough goodbyes, and everything in between, Moore characterizes the definition of a raw musician. “Goodbye on a sunny day, brightens all the shadows in a beautiful way” is a memorable lyric as it coexists among the emotions of happiness and sadness all in one. For the music connoisseur who wants to kick it back to original and one of a kind musicianship, do yourself a favor and start streaming the playlist."

“There isn't a song here I would have left off the list. It never gets tired or redundant. This is just particularly strong folk based music. It's a satisfying listening experience from start to finish. .”
