About Black Sheep Black

Black Sheep Black

Gritty warbirds and road bred players with numerous critically acclaimed bands under their belts including Radio Silents, Nero's Rome, Ray, Sing Sing Sleepwalker and Big House. From Portland Oregon, Black Sheep Black features Jack Inglis on Vocals, Armin Bestel on guitar/vocals and bassist Jeff Goocher.

Combined, this is a formidable family tree whose branches span from West Coast to Eastern Seaboard, down to Nashville touching Austin, then back to L.A.'s X- fueled punk scene returning up highway 101 to San Francisco with flowers in her hair.

Lava Lamp Americana, these twang gazers toss a healthy dose of Rockabilly, 70's Gold, Power Pop, Spaghetti C&W and Backwoods Psychedelia influences into well-crafted hook laden songs, lyrically smart, delivered with vocal intensity and instrumental prowess.




About Ian Moore

Ian Moore

Since his arrival as a solo artist in 1993 and his self-titled debut on Capricorn Records, Texas Music star Ian Moore's journey has been one of perpetual forward motion and constant change. The record included the hits, "Satisfied" and "Blue Sky", and even featured the track, "Harlem", which was made in to a music video by rap icon, Ice Cube.

Moore's most recent release, Strange Days, was birthed from Ian channeling all the influences from his childhood, soul music and the blues, while carrying forward all the hard-earned life lessons acquired on his journey that allow him to infuse these songs with a depth that only comes from years and miles. Moore's ability to straddle genres like a Neil Young or a Jack White is obvious.

By paying tribute to such luminaries as Curtis Mayfield, Otis Redding, Aaron Neville (even covering "Hercules"), and Sly Stone, Ian Moore can offer music politically charged at times, as well as the heartfelt love song filled with emotion and purpose.
