Beth was kind enough to write this about my Band – Steve Moore & the New as well as New South Productions.

“In the mid-1980’s, Steve Moore and The New South gave voice to early Generation X-er’s in Oxford. Together with his talented band comprised of local musicians, Steve Moore gave us a soundtrack for our experiences. Listeners at any of the band’s venues shared an intimacy of connection no matter how large an audience. The music of Steve Moore and The New South provided the doorway to a rare, collective experience. A varied and diverse crowd was drawn to the shimmering intensity of his music which was so palpable you could taste it. Steve called his own unique way of making music “Rock’n psychedelic country funk.” We just called it “cool…” If to see one of his shows was just such an experience, then to watch him work behind the scenes was an education. To say Steve works hard at his music is the most trite of understatements. I grew to know a complex man with the soul of an artist, the encyclopedic knowledge of a scholar, and the tenacity of a bulldog! Steve Moore’s influence on my own life has been profound. He compelled me to set high standards for myself and never ONCE let me get away with playing the “dumb blond.” Now I am glad to know Steve Moore and The New South are back as The Cowboy Killers and sure to charm another generation of music lovers with their own unique musical spell.” March 14, 2008
