Born January 18th 1952 in Nashville, R. Stevie Moore, “The Godfather of Home Recording” has produced and self-distributed over 400 albums covering pretty much every genre of music.
He has worked on numerous collaborations with a variety of musicians and artists including long-term friend, Ariel Pink, David Shrigley, MGMT, Jad Fair and Mike Watt.
In February 2005, newspaper writer Tammy LaGorce praised Moore, dubbing him a “lo-fi legend” in the New York Times.
“One of the most difficult to categorize musicians in rock, R. Stevie Moore is a true original. Bypassing the traditional recording industry more thoroughly than just about any internationally known singer/songwriter ever has, Moore has self-released literally thousands of songs through The R. Stevie Moore Cassette Club, an ongoing mail-order operation which has hundreds of individually dubbed cassettes and CD-Rs in its catalog.
The handful of traditional LPs and CDs Moore has released since 1975 are primarily collections of some of the best songs from those cassettes. Moore’s music, a blend of classic pop influences, arty experimentalism, idiosyncratic lyrics, wild stylistic left turns, and homemade rough edges, is one of a kind, but entire generations of lo-fi enthusiasts and indie trailblazers, from Guided By Voices to the Apples in Stereo, owe much to Moore’s pioneering in the field.” - Comfort Stand
