Abra Moore (born June 8, 1969 in San Diego, California) is an US american folk-styled alternative rock singer-songwriter. She is an icon of the Austin, Texas music scene. Her 1997 album "Strangest Places" included the hit single "Four Leaf Clover" which earned her a GRAMMY™ nomination, and received airplay in Midwest U.S. radio markets and VH1 and MTV2 rotation.
Moore's parents named Abra after the heroine of John Steinbeck's East of Eden. She was raised in Puna, Hawaii in a bohemian household that had very strong jazz influences, including jam sessions by guest musicians. When she was 19 she founded Poi Dog Pondering with a group of friends, moving to Los Angeles in 1988 and to Austin in 1992. Moore left the band shortly afterward to pursue a solo career. Her first album was "Sing" (1995), followed by "Strangest Places" (1997), which had a companion CD Live from the "Strangest Places", featuring acoustic versions of several tracks from the album. A single from this album, "Four Leaf Clover", peaked at #63 on the Billboard Hot 100; this was Moore's only charting single. During this time, another of her songs, "Trip On Love", was featured in the soundtrack for the 1999 film "Cruel Intentions".
Abra continued to work on her next studio album "No Fear", while contributing songs to several soundtracks. Amidst rumors of creative differences and contractual conflicts, she changed management and recording companies and the album was eventually shelved, although her record label, J Records, did release promo copies. Most of the songs later appeared in slightly altered versions on "Everything Changed" (Koch Records, 2004). Abra's latest offering "On The Way" was released on June 12, 2007, by Sarathan Records.
She appeared in the 1991 movie "Slacker" and has done other occasional film work in addition to her music career.
