On the evening before his fatal ATV accident in 2008, Dave Matthews Band’s LeRoi Moore was in the studio producing a disc by Samantha Farrell. That recording, Luminous, was subsequently finished utilizing notes that Moore composed in the hospital. On her MySpace page, Farrell comments, “A lot of people worked very hard for a long time to get this project completed, and to finish what we started with Roi. I am overjoyed that I can finally share it with you……For once, I’m at a loss for words (doesn’t happen often, trust me haha) but all I can offer is a humble thanks.” The album is now available through iTunes.
Meanwhile, LeRoiMoore.com has been launched to honor the memory of DMB’s founding sax player. Fans are encouraged to stop by and “post memories, photos and videos of LeRoi.” In addition, the site offers details regarding the LeRoi Moore Fund, which will initiate three scholarship programs next year.
