The Magician

By: Laurie Gallardo

Jordan Moser reveals a quiet force building beneath a pensive exterior on his 2023 LP Peril. And to be blunt, the cast of musicians in the album credits reads like a who’s-who of awesome badassery, including Lindsey Verrill and Jeff Johnston (Little Mazarn); producer Dan Duszynski on guitar and percussion; vocalist Natalie Jane Hill; Dailey Toliver playing all of the things, basically; and pedal steel extraordinaire courtesy of Bob Hoffnar.

In certain ways, like Moser’s previous release Long Night, Peril has a contemplative, understated feel, but there’s nothing understated about the emotion coursing through its multi-layered veins, leaving you mesmerized by a very engrossing storyteller. Moser continues his residency at Hole In the Wall with a show tonight, Tuesday Aug. 22, starting at 8 p.m.
