Sometimes known as the godfather of home recording or the king of DIY, R. Stevie Moore began laying down tracks in the late 1960s, playing bass, guitar, keyboards and drums as an overdubbed one-man band. Since then he’s recorded thousands of songs. But his career didn’t really take off until the 2000s, when he became an elder spokesperson for what’s sometimes called “bedroom music.” “Everything is released, warts and all,” he says of his own output. “Because bad music is brilliant. It’s a diary of sound.”
