Jive Ass Sleepers is the music of Stuart Moore, a keyboard player/composer/producer based in Sacramento, CA. He developed a love of funk, jazz and dance music during the 90s upon hearing Jamiroquai's debut album 'Emergency On Planet Earth.' This led him to explore the roots of this style of music, discovering along the way - Herbie Hancock, Jeff Lorber, Roy Ayers, The Crusaders, Average White Band and many others.
Growing up in the UK he also had an interest in many forms of dance music, especially House, where he became influenced by Basement Jaxx, Masters at Work and Daft Punk. Stuart started writing music in the late 90s and quickly developed his own funky, laidback sound. 'Gettin Down To Business' is an album that draws from all of his influences fusing 70s jazz funk with modern drum programming and a twist of Latin on the side.
