Though he had some specific genres he enjoyed, he had had his own college rock band experiences, and was open to every kind of music. Today Callie attributes her many different influences to her father’s open-minded approach to music. When Callie was 9 years old, her father started teaching her and her 2 sisters to sing together while he accompanied them on guitar. They performed at many community events, and the 3-part-harmony-singing little girls became quite popular. Callie developed a great love for her life surrounded by music.
On long family road trips her dad would sit in the passenger’s seat practicing the mandolin. One of her fondest memories is laying in the back seat, seemingly asleep with the rest of the kids, listening to the music for hours. At the age of 12, Callie hadn’t really considered playing the guitar. The beginning of her music career just kind of happened without intention one day. She was bored and randomly decided to ask her dad if he would teach her a few chords.
He took about 10 minutes and taught her 4 very basic chords, then he went about his day and left her to play with the guitar. Within the next hour she had written her first song. In the last 10 years, Callie’s songs have evolved into something of a jazzy-folk style. Her guitar playing is percussive and alive, her lyrics are moving and always meaningful. She has a husband, Dave Moore, who plays latin percussion on the congas, bongos, djembe, and several other instruments.
She has played with many different musicians, and also performs solo. Her first album is due to arrive this winter. She thanks her family for all of their love and support, and her father for making her home a “breeding ground for the brain, surrounded by forces constantly inspiring one to practice his/her greatest power - the power of creativity http://www.youtube.com/user/calliemooremusic http://www.myspace.com/calliemooremusic Read more on Last.fm.
