    12" Vinyl LP of "Never Look Away", the 9th studio album by Daniel Martin Moore.

    The artwork is also the result of a meeting of creative minds. The cover is by artist Ruth Speer. DMM said, “I came across some of Ruth’s paintings online, and I thought they were great, so I reached out to see if she’d be interested in working on something together. During our correspondence, she mentioned that she has synethsesia, and experiences colors associated with sounds. I sent her a recording of my favorite chord, Ebmaj7, with A=432hz, and that is the color palette for the painting she made.”

By the Beams 03:10
by the beams of the sun don't waste it on just anyone giving you the same old answers that never were worth a damn where my heart goes there my hand follows and under every sky i see you & i you see yourself in scraps & odds & ends and i can't even begin to tell you how i see you by the beams of the sun and this long & steady road do you ever wonder? if you're not already whole? however foolish we may be we stand to make amends and carry these embers to a new place again
2.
Loud & Clear 03:37
it was never for lack of want it was never for lack of anything it just never registered no matter the words we all would sing foreign shores alight with wonder distant lands & distant tongues i finally read you loud & clear after all this time we're here underneath this glorious sun light a candle & say your piece never again speak of these things living this old reckless way holding out for some far-off day i said i'd meet you wherever you are however fixed your mind & heart may be i finally read you loud & clear after all this time we're here you waited patiently
3.
let's write a real love song that leaves imagination in the dust a real love song to shine up all this rust let's write a real love song i'll be the one & you'll be the one a real love song in the full light of the sun it won't be pitch-perfect but we won't worry it'll be as good as we know
4.
the drift of autumn's golden train yet i remain sometimes it can feel the same in this place that never knew our names all my natural life i've been surprised each and every time grapple and tangle in the wake it's never the right time to say
5.
Lay A Wreath 02:25
we come to lay a wreath and recall the difficult years a hush over us as we speak and as we sail the changeful sea tell of the world as it is tell of this world as it would be carry the day for you and just this once, carry the day for me as we sail the changeful sea we sail o'er the ever changeful sea
6.
it need not go forever it can rest upon the earth we can settle down & feel it and we wouldn't be the first over air & wire calling us by name knowing nothing of our nature caring nothing for this place but over hill & valley moves a cooling wind sets the canopy swaying and sets us on the mend look out, look after, look on but never look away... no we need not go forever we can rest upon the earth we can settle right down & feel it and we wouldn't be the first look out, look after, look on but never look away...
7.
Weathervane 02:43
a compass a weathervane what points you down the road you take so much light or so much pain what shapes you to be this way staring into the sun to see staring into these endless screens reams of paper, pools of ink inundated no space to think farewell to every kind of claim real, imagined, it's all the same if it's only for image sake if it's only a weathervane
8.
this place feels the same even though you're gone sometimes it's all the same even though you're gone the yellow drift of leaves goes winding on don't worry i feel no rush we were never in a hurry it hasn't changed all that much how can i remain knowing what i know how i can i sustain knowing what i know
9.
Unexpectedly 02:46
unexpectedly your voice came to me so casually as if it would go on & on
10.
We Will Know 03:06
wise in the way you hold the daylight hours as your own as every one your own the tears in your eyes not unlike mine rom where they come and to where they go we rarely say everything we know we dare go just so far and not one step more but the notion will riss and i'll see it in your eyes and we'll know we will know we will know

about

Never Look Away, the 9th album from Daniel Martin Moore, finds the artist expanding, experimenting, and having fun in the studio. Co-produced by multi-instrumentalist Seth Kauffman, the recordings are candid, unfussed-over, and full of energy and light. “Seth is a wonder. I’ve admired his work for years, and it was a joy to bring this batch of songs to life with him,” said DMM. Kauffman is best-known for being the man-behind-the-band Floating Action, playing nearly all of the instruments, producing, recording, and mixing the albums himself. (In his spare time, he plays on the albums and in the touring bands of Jim James, Ray Lamontagne, and many others.)

The two artists convened at Kauffman’s home studio in Black Mountain, NC and set about to build the framework for the songs. Working from the rhythm up, they then added DMM’s guitar or piano, and a scratch vocal as a road map. From there, Kauffman added percussion, bass, and other supporting instruments.

At that point, DMM took the tracks back to his home studio in Kentucky, enlisting a trusty team of long-time collaborators to complete the record: Dan Dorff, Jr. on piano; Alexis Marsh on flute, clarinet, and saxophone; Scott Moore on violin; Charlie Patton on cello; with Sarah Teeple adding harmonies on the title track. The end result is a richly-layered, rhythmically-driven, vocal-centered, incredibly enjoyable album – the strongest of DMM’s career.
