Jason Moore moves on

Jason Moore, long time bassist with Mountain Heart, has officially announced his departure from the group to focus his attention on other musical ventures.

Jason Moore“Well, I just wanted to go on record to quiet any rumors and let everybody know my intentions. I have left Mountain Heart. My last date was in Olive Hill, KY last month.

This was a planned move and a very tough one for me. Actually, it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. My reasons are simply, it is time for another chapter in my life. I love the guys there and the music. In my opinion, Mountain Heart is and was the best music I will ever be a part of. The band will continue on and I wish them nothing but the best.

Even though I have told them individually, they will never know how much I appreciate them and the opportunities they gave me.

As for right now, I am focusing on Sideline and also working dates with Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road and Audie Blaylock and Redline while also working with Steve Dilling booking several bands through Jordan Entertainment. I will also do fill in dates with whoever needs them and do recording whenever the opportunity presents itself. This is my plan for now but who knows what the future holds.

To all the guys in Mountain Heart, I will miss you and our music. I wish you all the best. Thank you to all of the fans, you made all of this possible and you are the best. I will see you all down the road.

Now, on with the music and the new chapter.”
