I came across this guy by chance. He has a really nice voice and the songs are all delivered in an effortless way, so perfect for relaxing on a quiet Sunday. Worth a listen if you like acoustic, other albums have a few of classic gospel numbers, this one is more general ones here, with a yearning melancholic style in places but all delivered in a nice unplugged style. Listen to samples to get a feel.

Stray Age, Daniel Martin Moore's debut offering, is an astonishing piece of work. This is not the first time that Sub Pop have got behind this sort of acoustic almost-folk before (as several brilliant Mark Lanegan/Mike Jonson albums will attest), but the warmth and - for want of a better term - contentment that pours forth from every song is so infectiously cheerful that it's hard not to love this CD.
An inevitable and extremely favourable comparison (given the style of guitar playing and tone/delivery of vocals) is Nick Drake as his happiest, but there's so much more than that - Jeff Klein is also a name that pops into my head on more than one occasion while listening to this, and Daniel is ably assisted on a few tracks by such musicians as Petra Hayden and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (who have racked up an impressive CV between them, including such luminaries as Beck, Tori Amos and The Gutter Twins) who accompany the gentle, swaying songs without overimposing themselves. And he's not averse to making other people's work his own either - the album sports a cover of Sandy Denny/Fairport Convention's Who Knows Where the Time Goes which is as close to melancholy as Stray Age gets, although Daniel's version is more wistful reminiscence than regretful paean, and fits in perfectly with his own compositions.

For me, a great test of any album lies in the second listen, where all the gentle hooks become apparent as you find yourself humming along to songs as if you've been hearing them for years. This is one such album where the second listen feels as if it's always been there, and I can't offer any higher recommendation than that. Give it a listen, and prepare to be very pleasantly surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 12 Oct. 2008
By Pat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had a long drive ahead of me when I picked up a copy of Daniel Martin Moore's debut Stray Age. I had been eagerly awaiting it's release since I first heard his song "That'll Be the Plan" on his Myspace page months prior. I decided to take a long string of back-country roads to my destination rather than the noisy, dull highway. Between the gorgeous melodies of the album and the rustling, golden leaves whisking around my car, time almost stood still as I listened intently to the entire album over and over. Stray Age is a subtle album, maybe even difficult to fully understand first listen. It is an album to be absorbed, audibly savored. Daniel didn't rush through this album, so neither should you. Sit back and relax with Stray Age, let it slowly work it's way into one of your favorite albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be prepared for your heart to melt 11 Oct. 2008
By G S - Published on Amazon.com

It would not at all be an overstatement to say that Daniel Martin Moore has a voice as smooth as silk that will melt your heart away. Every track on his first release 'Stray Age' from Sub Pop Records is an absolute gem. Don't be in any kind of a hurry when you listen. He's not. His voice will slowly caress you with sweet, reflective, but non-sugary lyrics. For his first ever release he writes as if he is already a seasoned songwriter. His melodies are so natural and effortless as much as they stick to your mind hours after listening. Sticking to the mind is a good sign of good songs. Picking the highlighted songs of this disc is hard to do because the whole disc is a highlight, but you cannot go wrong with songs like 'That'll be the Plan', 'Stray Age', 'Every Color and Kind', 'The Hour of Sleep', and 'By Dream'. And his cover of 'Who Knows Where the Time Goes' is absolutely beautiful. Music is no competition, but it certainly rivals any version that I've ever heard. If you like beautiful folk tunes sung by a beautiful voice with a smidge of non-smaltzy lounge, Daniel Martin Moore is for you. Soon and very soon I know that I will be hearing the world cry out for Moore Moore Moore!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome debut 9 July 2009
By Greg Kinne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Stray Age' is the superb debut folk album from Cold Spring, Kentucky native Daniel Martin Moore. Previously an unknown, Moore solicited his demo to Sub Pop and based on its merits earned himself a record deal the old fashioned way. `Stray Age' is an autumnal record in its sparse beauty. In his approach to songwriting and vocals, Moore recalls Nick Drake and a less orchestrated Eric Matthews.

Moore performs tastefully with little instrumentation other than a lone guitar and vocal, on several tracks he is supported by piano and full band accompaniment. Moore presents himself as an assured artist and his taste in covers is excellent; his take on Sandy Denny's "Who Knows Where The Time Goes" is masterful. Other standout tracks include, "That'll Be The Plan," "The Old Measure," and "Every Kind and Color." This record is both subtle and disarming in its approach, which only accentuates its grace. `Stray Age' is available from Subpop Records.

Highest Recommendation.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly beautiful 25 Mar. 2009
By Just listenin' - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard Daniel Martin Moore singing "That'll Be the Plan" on radio, and because I was driving in heavy traffic I couldn't jot down the info I needed to track him down, not even which station I'd happened to tune in to. But I memorized the name. It took what seemed like forever to get from that to his album Stray Age. I simply had to have it. That just about says it all. Evocative, deceptively simple, incredibly lyrical--this is a voice you don't forget, and music you can't.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Talent 22 July 2014
By James F. Spragens - Published on Amazon.com

Has the potential to be boring. But, is anything but. This Kentuckian is a very fine songwriter who possesses amazing taste and economy as a singer. However, knowing how to sing is partly about knowing when to hold back so you know when to let it out. He does. I am amazed by this guy. Get this as well as In The Cool of the Day.
