Only Along for the Ride

by Hugh Moffatt

My tenth album, consisting of songs from over 40 years of writing and performing that I have never recorded before. Some new, some old, all important to me---maybe some of them will become important to you. We're all on this ride together!

Album Notes

The list of artists who have recorded Hugh Moffatt’s songs is international and multi-dimensional. They range from Patti Page to Jerry Lee Lewis to The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Alabama, and Johnny Cash and include pop, country, bluegrass, traditional, and gospel artists from around the world. These recordings include the chart-topping country singles “Just in Case” by Ronnie Milsap, “Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You” first by Joe Sun and then by Dolly Parton, and “How Could I Love Her So Much” by Johnny Rodriguez, and the Southern Gospel hit “Roll Away the Stone” by Wendy Bagwell and the Sunlighters.

As a performing artist, Moffatt has released ten albums and toured extensively around the world. His albums are LOVING YOU, TROUBADOUR and DANCE ME OUTSIDE (duets with Katy Moffatt) for Rounder Records, THE LIFE OF A MINOR POET for Watermelon Records, LIVE AND ALONE for Brambus Records in Switzerland, THE WOGNUM SESSIONS (The Hugh Moffatt Trio) for Strictly Country Records in the Netherlands, GHOSTS OF THE MUSIC for Brambus, and SONGS FROM THE BACK OF THE CHURCH and ONLY ALONG FOR THE RIDE on Sohl Recordings. Sony Australia also released a 17-song compilation from his first two albums under the title, THE WAY LOVE IS.

He is, with composer Michael Ching, the librettist for two one-act operas and one full-length opera. The one-acts are KING OF THE CLOUDS, commissioned and premiered by Dayton Opera in 1993, and OUT OF THE RAIN, commissioned jointly by Opera Delaware, the Kansas City Lyric Opera and Opera Memphis and premiered by Opera Delaware in 1998. These operas have each had multiple productions and continue to attract new audiences.

Moffatt and Ching’s first full-length opera, Corps Of Discovery, A Musical Journey, commissioned by the University of Missouri and based on the Lewis & Clark expedition, premiered in May of 2003 in Columbia, Missouri. Opera Memphis produced the professional premier in April of 2004, and the University of Idaho presented the Northwest premier in the fall of 2005. The Fargo Opera toured their own production throughout North Dakota in May of 2007.

In 2010, Opera Memphis presented the first performances of Gluck’s classic opera, Orpheus and Euridice, with a new English translation by Moffatt and Ching.

Whatever the medium, Hugh Moffatt continues to put music and words together to create works of beauty and deep emotional impact.
