NEVER OUT OF STYLE
I WROTE YOU THIS SONG
YOU CAN EASILY SING
A MESSAGE THAT'S SIMPLE
WITH LOVE AS THE KEY:
LOVE IS FOR YOU
LOVE SETS YOU FREE
LOVE WROTE IT FOR YOU
GOING AN EXTRA MILE
LOVE AND TRUTH
ARE NEVER OUT OF STYLE
FEAR DRIVES US FROM FREEDOM
HATRED HAS NO HOME
WITH LOVE IN OUR HEARTS
WE CAN NEVER LOVE ALONE
LOVE IS NEVER THRU
LOVE JUST KEEPS ON SINGING
The ambient sounds of reality and natural atmospheres are the specialty of professional recording artist Clinton LeFort.
LeFort (who also records under the moniker of Purple Moose) hails from Lake Arthur, LA where he learned the Cajun Zydeco bands Honky-Tonk Country songs of the bayou. "I was lucky to work as a kid next door to a Honky-Tonk joint where new music was being performed every Saturday," he says.
He attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and earned his Masters under Dinos Constantinides and Stephen David Beck (Electro-Acoustics)
You can view his music as downloads at LastFm.com or iTunes. Rhapsody and Napster.
LeFort relocated to Union, MO in 2001 where he continues to live and work to this day. Since then, he has recorded and released a slew of albums as Purple Moose. His work, as featured in Music For Films Vol. 1, Sense World and Intelligible World and New Life, run the gamut of styles including Classical, Baroque, Film, Contemporary Christian, Minimalist, Ambient and Electronica.
"I carry forward an eclectic tradition of musical genres not just any single one," he says. "Music is forever expanding and this is what it will always do. It speaks to the hearts of the present, while growing into the future."
At 10 yrs. of age my parents encouraged my music making and gave me opportunities to play electric bass at festivals and teenage venues. Along with my brother as trumpet player; friends as drummer and electric guitar, we enjoyed these times of music making. Later, I joined the University first as a Double bassist, later as a cellist and composer of my own music. I conducted my music accompanied by full orchestra and many other ensembles- synchronized to motion picture while attending USC. Today some of my music is being used in recent films.
