Second Cup Café: Abra Moore

Grammy nominated folk-pop artist Abra Moore, best known for her breakout 1998 hit song "Four Leaf Clover," is back on the music scene after a six-year absence.

Following the release of her critically acclaimed second album, "Strangest Places," Moore went through some difficult times, including the loss of her father. But after throwing herself into her music again, she's back on track with a new record company and a new album.

Moore came to The Early Show's Second Cup Café to perform two songs from her new album, "Everything Changed." Moore also sang her 1998 hit, "Four Leaf Clover."

Moore, one of the founding members of Poi Dog Pondering, has been described by critics as a mix between Ricki Lee Jones and Edie Brickell.

Growing up in Hawaii, she composed her first song at age six. During her early teens, she studied piano in New York City. Later she moved to Europe, where she played small clubs along the coast of England and on the streets of Paris.

Moore became a member of Poi Dog Pondering while studying at the University of Hawaii. After several years on the road with Poi Dog, Moore decided to settle down in Austin, Texas, to try her hand at a solo career. Her critically acclaimed debut album, "Sing," was released on Bohemia Beat records in 1995.
