Blue-in-Green:PODCAST #135: Ciara Moser

Welcome to Episode #135 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which this week sees Imran connect with the Boston-based bassist, composer, band leader and educator, Ciara Moser.

With the release of her debut solo offering in 'Blind. So What?', Moser firmly establishes her inspired perception of contemporary jazz-funk and jazz-fusion for her music going forward.  But more than solely serving as a project that is exemplary for its bold and creative compositions and songwriting, the album also seeks to provide insight through a first-hand account of life as a blind musician.  Across the album's twelve tracks, Moser imaginatively explores these themes, and recounts from her own experiences, outlining issues pertaining to trust, spatial distance and memory.  Mosers' is an impassioned stance and one that she's committed to having people connect with - Moser's journey is further documented through her podcast series, which shares the same name as the album, and strives to provide understanding of blindness as a condition and not a hindrance.

As a highly-educated and highly-decorated artist, Moser's inumerable successes to date continue to inspire and serve as the framework for even greater achievements in time to come.  We were thrilled to have secured time with Ciara to discuss the transition to band leader for this project, her desire to bring more awareness for the blind musical community and we delve into everything that went into the making of 'Blind. So What?'.
