“I feel that ‘To Make It True’ is the heart of the record. When we were leafing through the pages of songs that would come to comprise this LP, it’s the song around which all the others fell into orbit – if a song didn’t meld with ‘To Make It True,’ it was left by the wayside. I wrote it back in 2007, during the sessions for my first album, Stray Age, and it makes me happy that it finally has a recorded home.” – Daniel Martin Moore

There are very few artists in music at the moment that come forth with the sincerity behind them than Elizabethtown, KY singer/songwriter Daniel Martin Moore. His latest EP, Golden Age, set for release on October 9th via Sofaburn Records might end up being his finest to date. Produced by My Morning Jacket’s and fellow Kentucky native Jim James, the album enlists was not a singular effort with Moore enlisting the assistance of keyboardist Dan Dorff, Jr., Dave Givan on percussion, Alana Rocklin and Zak Appleby (Houndmouth) handling bass, along with Charlie Patton’s cello and Scott Moore’s violin. Another favorite of ours Joan Shelley (we highly recommend her new album Over and Over) brought along her elegant vocal work. All these players result in what James calls “a flower tucked back in the tall grass.”

Yesterday, Moore unveiled a behind the scenes video featuring the very Nick Drake-esque and appropriate autumn number “How It Fades.” Today, we are fortunate to premiere another fragile track from the album called “To Make It True” which plays out as a plea to do better for that significant other, friend, or loved one. If you play this song for that someone you wronged and they don’t immediately turn around and forgive you, then you must have really messed up. Regardless, this is a song that demand and surely will get repeat listens. Find it below.
