Geoff Moore (1999)
Updated: Nov 12
Geoff Moore is a self-titled solo album by Christian singer - songwriter Geoff Moore, released on September 21, 1999 by ForeFront Records. The album is produced by Monroe Jones.
This is Moore's eleventh album overall, counting his seven albums he recorded with his touring band The Distance, plus three early albums he recorded before forming The Distance on the Benson label in the mid 1980s. Moore's self-titled solo album focuses on his songwriting skills and a warm, acoustic sound. The album's laid-back, genuine feel is exemplified by tracks like "Out Here," a cover of Rich Mullins' "Boy Like Me, Man Like You," "Land of No Regret" and "Thanks to You," a duet with Moore's writing collaborator and friend Steven Curtis Chapman. Moore also covers "Bless the Broken Road" as "God Bless the Broken Road," a song that would be a hit in both the Country and Christian markets by Rascal Flatts and Selah, respectively, in the mid 2000s. A music video was made for the track.
Geoff Moore climbed to number 22 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.
