Guitar wizard David M’ore brings his blues-rock grooves – high-octane to be sure, but filled with passion and soulfulness – to Napa when his “Passion Soul & Fire” CD Release Tour.
From the beginning, traditional Blues and British Neoclassical Hard Rock played a very important role in the evolution of the David M’ore style. Born in Argentina, he picked up an old guitar that his Godfather bought him for his eighth birthday and immediately began to explore vintage records. “The aggressive sound of the guitar drove me emotionally insane”, M’ore says. “I still listen to those old records from Johnny Winter. That’s where it all began”.
A born troubadour, M’ore frequently moved around the world as well as throughout the U.S. before finally settling in Hollywood in 1990. After the split-up of his band Blind Hole and his refusing to accept the oncoming Grunge Movement, M’ore escaped to Sacramento in 1993, winning a Sacramento Music Award there in the process.
David M’ore has taken his guitar pyrotechnics to a different level of instrumental majesty. Performing on a custom-made Strat carefully modified to his specifications, the colorful guitarist demonstrates his acclaimed six-string technique on both originals and cover tunes. “I love to pay tribute to those who influenced me, but at the same time, I like to be true to whom I am” explains M’ore, whose influences include guitar greats Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore, Joe Satriani, Johnny Winter, and Albert King.
If you’re a fan of excellent guitar playing and enjoy hard rock that strays towards the blues rather than heavy metal, it’s likely David M’ore’s expressive and explosive guitar attack is for you . David M’ore, a man and his guitar.
Passion, Soul & Fire: What the Press Is Saying
“Passion, Soul, and Fire offers pays homage to those great guitarists of the past, while at the same time retaining an identity which is entire David M’ore. There is so much to like about this recording, each song makes you salivate for the next. Each track is a high quality recording, well-engineered and all dominated by M’ore’s thunderous guitar.”
“David M’ore is M’agic with a guitar!”
(Nationally-Syndicated Radio Program)
“The immediate thing that hits you about David M’ore is the voice; husky, graveled tones which really should be coming from a Deep-South grizzled old bluesman. The overall feel of Passion, Soul & Fire is similar to those 1970s and 1980s guitar greats, like Johnny Winter, Peter Frampton, Jimi Hendrix, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The album opener, “The Devil’s Land,” makes a pretty clear statement of intent with a tasty lick as the main riff. It rolls along at a good pace with just enough vocal to keep us interested, but the guitar breaks and solo are clearly the main event.”
NATIONAL ROCK REVIEW
“Born in Argentina, David M’ore got a guitar for his eighth birthday and hasn’t looked back. Drawn to the blues-rockin’ sounds of Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore, Albert King, Johnny Winter and many others, he was mesmerized by not only their mad skills, but the pyrotechnical aspect of their artistry as well. His latest album, “Passion, Soul, And Fire” takes those techniques to a whole ‘nother level with these twelve cuts. With a vocal delivery that falls somewhere between Tom Waits, Billy Gibbons, and ol’ Chester Arthur Burnett himself, David concocts a deep and varied collection of danceable blues and cuts suitable for listening and reflecting.”
NASHVILLE BLUES SOCIETY
“M’ore is a pyrotechnic guitarist who shows with his able and quick fingers his skill and amazing technique, both in his own compositions and in all the covers he performs. The aggressive wild guitar together with his rough, raw vocal qualities excel in the nine songs included in this album that become an abundant and fine display of precise technique and warm energy. VERY GOOD“.
LA HORA DEL BLUES (Spain)
“A whiskey-soaked rocking, bluesman who has a voice that comes across like Tom Waits meets Dusty and Billy kinda way. Highlights include the instrumental ‘Johan Sebastian Blues’ (reminds me of old school ZZ Top gone Blackmore (think ‘Burn’ etc) meets the original Gun’s ‘Race With The Devil’; and ’Sweet Little Baby’ which is pure delta. ‘Cold Blooded’ puts me in mind of The Faces as it’s really Ronnie Wood-like; you expect an early 70’s voice Rod Stewart piping up and the Stevie Ray Vaughn like ditty entitled ‘The Devils Island”. Great!”
“David M’ore has managed to take his guitar pyrotechnics to a different level of instrumental majesty. Performing on a custom-made Strat carefully modified to his specs, M’ore demonstrates his acclaimed six string technique on both originals and cover tunes on his hot new album, “Passion Soul & Fire.”
MIXALIS BLUES (Greece)
“The latest album from blues rocker David M’ore is called Passion, Soul, & Fire and you can clearly hear these elements in killer album cuts like the southern rock of “Cold Blooded” where M’ore takes his time and enjoys every second of his passion, laying down a two-minute intro before beginning his vocals. The album title certainly doesn’t need any more words, but if one more were to be added it would be “integrity.”
