Moira Smiley – Wiseman
Moira Smiley is a singer and composer who writes folk songs that transcend the definitions of “folk” styles. She is a socially conscious painter of words and melodies, a weaver of intricate rhythms, voices, and refrains. Her long-player, Unzip The Horizon (April 2018) is nothing short of amazing on every level!
Wiseman (seen/heard here) is a Celtic-flavored love song with a deeper meaning; Refugee is an accounting of the fear and uncertainty surrounding real refugees and has a vague reggae feel; Below is a world flavored anthem on survival and is the track that hosts the title of the long-player in its refrain-and there is so much more here. Each track is lovingly created to add a new picture to a book that will never be finished. In all, there are 14 tracks here. If you can walk away from a complete listen of this collection and gain nothing, then you are without a soul. This music is magic; It is at once inspiring and disheartening.
Moira has been making music as Moira Smiley & VOCO for many years which is most likely the mother of the diverse flavor of the 14 tracks on Unzip The Horizon.
