THE MOONSHINE

The Moonshine is an idea on the rise. Taking the magic of the stringband as their foundation and journeying through the wilds of all music that has shaped them, this music is original and dynamic, with deep roots into Folk, Indie Rock, Oldtime, Gypsy and Cajun traditions.

After a chance meeting on a fire escape in Portland, Oregon, the husband and wife duo at the core of The Moonshine fell - luckily not off the fire escape - but instead in love, and they've been making music together since 2005. Songwriter Michael Gerard Levasseur (Michael the Blind) and multi-instrumentalist Rachael Renee'  founded the postmodern stringband The Moonshine in 2012 along with longtime bassist/musical partner J Elwood Johncox, freshly recruited gypsy/old-time fiddler Susanna Low-Beer and clawhammer banjo player Sara Wolf. Together they toured up and down the West Coast and as far east as Montana and Idaho. In 2015, they brought the inimitable Maxwell Countryman Skewes into the fold to add bluegrass banjo textures. Just after releasing their second album, 2016 took Michael and Rachael across the country to Athens, Georgia, where they eventually hooked up with additional band members Rob Keller (Six String Drag) on bass, and classically trained violinist/fiddler Nicholas Lindell on fiddle. Guided by the vision of Michael’s engaging lyricism and ephemeral arrangements, this shifting cast of talented Moonshiners bring their vibrating strings and vocal chords to original rock and roll songs, grassed-out rock covers, rocked-out bluegrass covers, and their indie rock take on old-time classics.

The Moonshine are currently recording a third album and booking a West Coast and a few East Coast tours for 2019. Sign up to the mailing list to be alerted when they come to your town!
