Bucket List Miracles

Hey, Jay here. Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve last posted. I got caught up in all of it. Covid scared me. I lost my Dad, and I got all reflective. There were so many things I wish I had done when there was a world. I lamented that I didn’t play enough music. I did the family thing, raised the child, loved the woman, paid the bills, washed the dishes. But now, the kids are all grown up and I’m an empty nester looking to redefine myself.

When I was younger I loved being in bands and playing out. I’m a 70’s child, and everyone wanted to be a rock star back then. During the pandemic lock down, there were no venues to play, and I felt a sudden major loss. A loss of all the things I wish I had done when I could have, and now that I couldn’t, I really felt the loss. The maybe someday was always there for me, but once that was taken away, it freaked me out. I really like sharing my music with the kind folk. I have found the best way to lift my own heart is to lift the heart of others. You all take this wonderful ride up together and it’s magical. I need to get back to that sort of exchange, pronto!

There were no music studios open, so while sheltering at home I decided to record songs on my kid’s Mac using GarageBand. I invited my family to add backing vocals, keyboard, and bass tracks. I recorded in the living room next to Cosmo, our dog. You can hear him on a few of the tracks. I love that old dog.

I like the art and design on old vinyl LP records from the past, and modeled my project as a concept album intended to be listened to as a whole, if that’s your thing, or feel free to enjoy your favorite track. Listen now, click link below for samples and links to Spotify, iTunes etc:

Things are beginning to open up. We have been invited to play at a small local venue, here in our little Maine village. It seems like a miracle. A bucket list miracle to have a new set of music, ready to play, and finally, a place and audience to play for. Please come out to see us if you are in the area, and give the new project a listen at the link above.

Nine million years of JEM Songs

Music and Lyrics by J.E.Moores

I’ve been writing little ditties and songs since 1986 in journals. Some of those songs became recordings for Rain Station, Time Brats, and other musical projects. All my journals are hand written, and I was concerned that if I ever lost them, I would lose my songs. So I took a few days and wrote them all out and made a JEM Song Book. Now I have a handy back up copy of all my songs from 1986-2014 in PDF format where ever there is an internet connection. I hope others will enjoy playing some of these little songs I wrote.

Have FUN!

J.E.Moores

Jam With Me!

Jam with me!

Hey, I needed to make a little room for our latest project, so I have deleted all these nifty drum tracks and are on with the RSRP, the Rain Station Remote Project.
