Daniel Martin Moore
“Our golden age is here,” Daniel Martin Moore sings on the title track of his latest offering, and he could easily be singing about his own career. Moore has steadily gained a following as one of our most emotive and haunting singers since his acclaimed debut back in 2008. Those deeply moving vocals are pushed to new heights on Golden Age, which he coproduced with Jim James of My Morning Jacket.
The album is also a whole new sound for Moore. Known for his meditative singing and guitar-driven melodies, Golden Age manages to hold onto that calming element while also giving Moore a more upbeat quality on a larger canvas. Read more

PUBLIC HEARING ON FATE OF KING RECORDS BUILDING =
City Planning Commission
FRI Aug 21 at 9am
Two Centennial Plaza
Behind City Hall
805 Central Ave
This is the next step after unanimous support from Historic Conversation Board. After Planning Commission, this goes to City Council. The number of votes needed at City Hall will vary based upon what happens at Planning Commission. In other words, we want another unanimous vote.
King Records Building owner has still not accepted our requests to sit down and find win-win with us and continues to send lawyer with message that they want to demolish the building! Mayor Cranley continues to be on our side and is actively engaged. Help us reach out to Council so we can be united to do what it takes to strike the appropriate balance. So far, all have been supportive, so we ask they take action to show it, like with FRI Aug 21 meeting before it arrives on their agenda. There has to be a win-win figured out before it’s too late.

Jeremy Pinnell, Northern Kentucky’s son from across the river, is a soft-spoken man, born to an area that is equal parts Southern hospitality, Northern attitude and Midwestern charm.

But with his departure from home at 18 to venture into the unknown with only his music, this young man soon found himself surrounded by the demons of the world he used to try and sing away. Read more
