Todd Warner Moore plays a timeless-sounding form of folk music that’s reminiscent of greats like Van Morrison and Neil Young, while adding a fluttering modern element to the fold. The artist’s newest album, Spark, finds the Kansas City-born artist showing his strengths. The album’s self-titled track is indicative of what to expect, as a melodic male-female vocal duet works seamlessly through warmly harmonious acoustics and tribal-like drums. It sounds like a joyous song fit for a campfire, during a celebration of nature and human love. The track speaks to emerging with creativity and a new outlook: “It was the spark that set a motion in her brain / Under a long dark spell / Then suddenly awake.”
