The “Father of D.I.Y.” has spent decades recording prolific amounts of music and self-releasing them from his New Jersey apartment and, along the way, picked up critical acclaim and an enormous cult following but—ain’t it the way it goes—not much mainstream success.

His debut record, “Phonography,” was named one of the “fifty most significant indie releases of all-time” by Rolling Stone, who also called Moore “a national treasure.”
