«The consummate creative character»
Robert Stevie Moore is an american improviser, composer, arranger, producer, musical conceptualist, comedy writer, vocal stylist, filmmaker, sketchpad artist, drama example, self-taught instrumentalist and bon vivant. He was born in 1952 in nashville TN. He is the son of Bob Moore, veteran Nashville A-Team bassist, producer, and orchestra leader, as well as a longtime sideman for Elvis Presley. Since ‘66 rsm has recorded nearly 2, 000 songs on over 400 very original homemade albums of alarmingly idiosyncratic variety and styles, often considered a seminal pioneer in the DIY ethic. Remaining virtually unknown, he quietly resides in new jersey as curator of his own museum. Moore lives and records in his home/studio in Bloomfield, New Jersey.
In February 2005, newspaper writer Tammy LaGorce described Moore as a «lo-fi legend» in the New York Times.
