Poet Jessica Care Moore is working to release her first recording project. A beautiful balance of poetry and Detroit electric jazz. She has started a Kickstarer campaign. Moore rose to popularity in the 90’s with her amazing poetry/spoken word.
“Hello family, I’m very excited to be recording my first music project, Black Tea, The Legend of Jessi James. The poetry written for the album is inspired by and dedicated to the voices and lives of so many women blues and jazz artists who left an indelible mark on so many of us. The album is my mantra to survive great losses, to write and sing my story now. This is the music my poetry has been waiting for. I teamed up with a beautiful group of young, talented Detroit musicians to make this project a reality. Jon Dixon, my pianist, is brilliant and truly listened to my words as he composed.”
