Indra Rios-Moore was born in New York to a Puerto Rican mother and an African-American-Syrian father, jazz bassist Don Moore, who worked with Archie Shepp, Sonny Rollins and Elvin Jones. She was influenced musically by her mother’s record collection, an eclectic mix of Latin, jazz, pop and soul, and by her classical training as a soprano at Mannes College of Music. She met and married Danish saxophonist Benjamin Trearup and they moved to Denmark. In 2007 she formed a trio with Trearup and bassist Thomas Sejthen, and they quickly acquired a loyal fanbase in Scandinavia. Indra’s second album In Between won the Danish Music Award for Best Vocal Jazz Album in 2012. For her third album, Heartland, Indra decided to contact Larry Klein, the producer of her favorite Joni Mitchell album, Turbulent Indigo. He agreed immediately. The result is an intimate, evocative and eclectic album.
