3. Home For Story Time, the debut effort from Britney Moore.



Raised on heavy does of Lawrence Welk, the indie band Joy Electric, Julian Lennon, The Rolling Stones and The Who, eighteen year old Britney Moore first discovered her love for music when she was around five years of age. "That's when I started walking around and singing, just whatever," Moore recalls. "I never grew out of that. I think I started to get seriously into music when I was about twelve. I started fiddling around with one of my mother's keyboards after being inspired by Joy Electric. Songwriting was just very natural from that point and I've been experimenting with it since."



Not one to take formal lessons, Britney took to studying both keyboards and guitar through books she bought and experimenting more than anything else. Always inspired by music she listens to Moore touches on her inspirations but while she strives to equal those inspirations she doesn't want to imitate them, "I didn't listen to too many bands growing up and I think this encouraged me more to experiment with sound my own way", she relates. What she did listen to included a lot of classic rock as well as big band music. "I listened to Lawrence Welk when I was little. I used to watch that show a lot - even tried copying the tap dancers, which thankfully I grew out of!! When I was 12 I started listening to an electronic pop group called Joy Electric and then at 14 I started devouring Julian Lennon especially his album 'Photograph Smile', which I find to be a beautiful piece of work. Julian's album influenced me to take up acoustic guitar. Although I still like Joy Electric and Julian Lennon I tend to listen to The Rolling Stones, Ron Wood's solo works, and The Who more than anybody."



Adopted when she was seven years old Britney's early musical inspirations came to focus when she moved to Greensboro North Carolina. "I moved to Greensboro when I was adopted," states the young songstress. It influenced my musical taste in the fact that I was just exposed to music period. Before that I never really was, except my own singing as all children do. No one really took any time with me before that. After that I watched a lot of TV and that's how I heard a lot of music and found out about different artists that grabbed my attention. If I hadn't moved to North Carolina I don't think I'd be getting as much support musically as I am getting now.



With her independent debut album, Home For Story Time, Moore decided to take the leap into recording her own music and exposing her soul to the world. "I have a lot of material and am

constantly writing so with Home For Story Time I grouped together all the songs that had the same warm tone that I was trying to communicate. I originally recorded over 20 songs for the album and knocked off the ones I didn't think were as good as the others. With the title of the album I was just trying to say that even when these songs got personal for me, the listener shouldn't read too much into it. To accept first that these are just stories and listen to them for the story first and then for anything more. Mostly with my own songs I tend to be inspired by my own dreaming, personal life experiences and books more than anything. Just science fiction books or a fairy tale something like that." "Thursday Foolsgold" and "Liquorice & Smoke" are two good examples of being influenced by life experiences. "'Thursday Foolsgold" is just about a couple of boys I used to know. But I never got to be as close to them as I wanted to be. Of course the story in the song is exaggerated. I picked the title because there's an old Chinese poem that says children born on Thursday have a long way to go. Foolsgold comes from the character not being himself really and as we know fools gold looks like real gold but isn't. So I've always liked that title. "Liquorice and Smoke" was about a boy I was very very interested in and he liked me too! But in the end he ended up being a complete jerk and running off with some other chick. I made up the character of Liquorice to have someone going through what I was going through just so I could relate to him. Smoke is the friend that I wanted to have by me at the time. Just someone holding me and saying 'you know he was a jerk and that's alright.' I didn't want to hear there would be someone else I just wanted to hear it was okay to feel as hurt as I was feeling."



""Through North Stars" shows how my book reading can be a big influence on me. At the time I was reading a lot of C.S. Lewis but the song is really just nonsense with images influenced by Lewis's works. "Say Say Say" is a song I based on a dream I had and the story is pretty much the same as in my dream. I was having an affair with a married man but I was friends with his wife too. In the end of my dream he went back to his wife as he does in the song. I wrote it because when I woke up I still had these overwhelming feelings of hurt. Whenever I play the song I still do."



While the rest of the world's teens are wrapped up in the latest pop sensations and the like, Britney Moore travels her own path. Not concerned with current trends and fads, Moore has created her own little musical niche in the world.

Eccentric. Art. Folk.Experimental.
When I first heard Britney Moore's debut album, "Home For Story Time,"
I
didn't quite get what it was all about. It didn't seem like something I
would listen to again. But, I did give it another chance and, when I
did,
something magical happened. The album started to grow on me and, the
more I
listened to it, the more I got into it. As I listen to it now, I
understand
that it's a rather unique collection of material. I'm not exactly sure
how
to describe it. Simple with a deep meaning maybe. Eccentric. Art. Folk.
Experimental. There's potential here and you must look deep into the
heart
of what she's doing to appreciate and understand it. In other words,
you
need to have an open mind when it comes to the music of Britney Moore.
