Patsy Moore's "Blood" from "Expatriates" tells a familiar story in a powerful, painful way

Patsy Moore's ambitious 2011 concept album, "Expatriates," comes from a woman whose creativity has never quite allowed her to comfortably exist within any musical subculture. She appeared at our Cornerstone Festival years back as a young poet / musician, even then outside any pre-fabricated "contemporary Christian" music designation. Severely challenged by cancer and other disease-related issues, Patsy's art reflects her journey. "Expatriate" indeed, and perhaps a voice for others of us who feel the same way.
