Album Notes
Like all good mountain liquor, Moonshine is best shared with friends. And that's how the band started, or perhaps we should say, evolved.

Stan DeWitt and Joe Lamanno met in the early 90's and played together in a popular folk trio called the Woodbys. After that, the two continued working together on Stan's solo records, "Long Day's Journey" (which garnered a Top 10 DIY nod from Performing Songwriter magazine in 2002), "Reaching Back," "Bend" and "Musical Moonshine."

Along the way, they were joined by Shar Higa (vocals), Anna Ford (violin), and Claudia Fitzpatrick (cello). When Darrell Barrett (drums, percussion) joined, they became known briefly as Stan DeWitt and Moonshine.

With the addition, however of songwriter Nathan Conn in 2011, and the emergence of songwriting prowess from Shar and her songwriting partner Robyn Javier, it was clear that this was now a group effort, and Moonshine was christened. What began as a group of musicians who played together simply for the joy of it had become a musical group that played together for the joy of it.

A successful Kickstarter campaign in May, 2012 enabled the group to record their debut album, "Bring Some Friends." The common trait in all five songwriters' songs (DeWitt, Conn, Higa, Javier and Lamanno) is a sense of humor and whimsy, even when the songs edge into the poignant. "Jackson City" finds a young man heading out to a mythical city where "all the girls are pretty and all the cars are fast." "Afterword" laments the closing of a bookstore and pleads "Lord, give me a sign, won't you tell me that the bookstores in heaven never close." "You Wanted to Be" tells the story of a man who sets off for adventure only to come back home and find that what he wanted was there all along.

In all of these songs, you will hear an allegiance to tight vocal harmony, Americana-laced guitar work (including nods to Luther Perkins in "Jackson City), intricate string arrangements, and joy.

So sit back and enjoy Moonshine, and by all means, Bring Some Friends!
