Sam Moore releases new album 'An American Patriot'


Mon, Oct 2nd 2017 03:10 pm
The "Legendary Soul Man" has released his newest album, "Sam Moore: An American Patriot," now available for download on iTunes. CDs will be available in-store, as well as on Amazon, Apple Music, and other outlets on Friday.
The album was inspired by Moore's own performance of "America the Beautiful" on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where his dear friend and inspiration, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., stood 53 years earlier delivering his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. Moore said he believes that music, the universal language that knows no boundary or color, was the best way for him to take a stand and make an impact in helping to bring the country he loves back together.
Enlisting the skills of renowned producer Rudy Perez, a Cuban refugee, Moore has crafted "An American Patriot" with the goal of recording versions of iconic American anthems like they've never been done before. In his recognizably unique style, he has recorded classics such as "Battle Hymn of the Republic," Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A." and Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On." In addition to the traditional songs, the album also features new songs such as "Show For You," the 2017 Department of Defense Warrior Games anthem; "Peace Please" and "Land of the Free." It is with the hope of rekindling love of country and each other that "Sam Moore: An American Patriot" is offered.
Moore, the Grammy-award winning, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer who is credited by Bruce Springsteen as being one of the "great masters of momentum" when it comes to his showmanship, has performed for all six living presidents, including Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Most recently, Moore performed "America the Beautiful" on "Fox & Friends" in New York City and at Royal Albert Hall in London with other Stax originals as part of BBC's "Late Night Prom, The Sound of Soul: Stax Records" in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Stax/Volt Revue's groundbreaking tour of the U.K. and Europe.

Moore catapulted to international fame as the lead voice of the 1960s powerhouse duo "Sam & Dave," a musical collaboration with long-time partner and fellow Georgia native Dave Prater. The duo recorded and performed together for 20 years, but it was the 1967's hit "Soul Man," that found them lasting fame, defined a genre, and altered the course of music history. Their signature sound influenced a diverse array of musical talents, including Al Green, Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Tom Petty, Phil Collins, Elvis Costello and Billy Joel. Sam & Dave's music and personas inspired the film The Blues Brothers, and other hits such as "Hold On I'm Coming" have appeared on the soundtracks of more than a dozen films.
After a storied career with Prater, Moore has spent the past 35 years enjoying a solo career, recording with some of the biggest names in numerous genres of music, including Conway Twitty, with whom he recorded the hit song "Rainy Night in Georgia." In 1992, Moore was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, capping a career that includes a Grammy, and honors from the Vocal Music Hall of Fame, the Grammy Hall of Fame, and the Rhythm and Blues Foundation.
