Feb. 5, 2018 - Kevin Moore might be best known as a keyboardist, but it's his guitar playing that's the focus of his latest song.
Moore posted a new 3:29 demo song, titled "Away," through his Chroma Key Patreon campaign, which launched in 2015 and invited fans to pledge an amount of their choosing to help fund new music.
The track comes nearly two months after Moore shared the demo song "Kings Park Youth," which was the first he has ever created solely using a guitar, he said.
"So this is my second guitar-based Patreon demo," Moore said in a post on Patreon. "I performed it on my not-so-trusty Ovation 1867 Legend electric acoustic. I recorded directly from the guitar's output, and double-tracked it. Then I duplicated both tracks and pitched them up an octave, so it kind of sounds like a 12-string. Lots of mellotron sounds on this one (vibes, strings flute). The song kind of echoes Graveyard Mountain Home in sound and sentiment, albeit with a more conflicted narrator..."
The tune is available in MP3, FLAC and M4A (Apple Lossless) formats with lyrics and patron names embedded in the "lyrics" tag. In addition, Moore said he is still planning to release a bonus track for Chroma Key Enablers ($5 pledgers), and multitrack stems and production notes for Chroma Key Collaborators ($10 pledgers).
