Allison Moorer will show fans a different side to her Crows album with the digital release of the Crows Acoustic EP on May 25th.
The new release features six solo and acoustic versions from her critically acclaimed Ryko debut, Crows. The 13-track Crows, is a refined and lyrically honest collection of songs that is a marked stylistic departure from her previous work.
When speaking about the Crows Acoustic EP, Allison Moorer stated, "I always like to give people an opportunity to hear a song in the form it was born in. And sometimes with a twist. That's what this recording is about."
Moorer's 1998 song, "A Soft Place To Fall," was included on the soundtrack to the feature film The Horse Whisperer, which led to an appearance in the film itself, as well as an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. The opportunity gained her worldwide attention and set the stage for her career.
Since, Moorer has been featured on releases by Joan Baez, Kid Rock, The Chieftains, Los Straightjackets and most recently the David Byrne & Fatboy Slim collaboration album, Here Lies Love.
Moorer was also nominated for her first Grammy Award in 2007 for the song "Days Aren't Long Enough," a composition she co-wrote with her husband, Steve Earle. The couple welcomed their first child, John Henry Earle, into the world on April 5th. Crows is Allison Moorer's 7th studio recording.
