A classic rock influence with a modern country twist, the Moonshine Mamas will have you tapping your toes and swaying along to their sweet harmonies.
This twin sister duo, based in Alberta, grew up around music. Their parents were in an oldies country band called Moonshine County. You could say they are second-generation Moonshiners. Sunday mornings were usually spent raiding the band bus for leftover snacks, and then their job was to unload the gear and set up mama’s drum kit. They started a few different musical projects throughout grade school and their college years. But it wasn’t until they both became mothers that they found their true voice and passion. Having daughters of their own, they aim to send the message to young women everywhere that they are enough and to be confident in who they are.
“We’ve learned from experience that ‘nice girls’ finish last. We are here to tell our stories through our music and hope to inspire other women to be strong and follow their dreams.”
They have performed all around Alberta, from Edmonton down to Medicine Hat. They were most notably a part of Sirroma Entertainments Diamonds in the Rough showcase during the 2019 CCMA week. As with many musicians, the pandemic threw a wrench in the mamas’ performance schedule but they continue to put out videos and use the time to plan and prepare for the release of their first single. With new music to be released this summer, this quirky duo is ready to show the world what being a rockin’ mama is all about.
