Biography

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.   With new music to be released soon, this strong, sassy and sweet sister duo from Edmonton, AB is ready to show the world what being a rockin’ mama is all about.   

Formally known as Drowning Ophelia,  an alternative pop duo, they rediscovered their country roots and decided to carry on the family name as the MOONSHINE MAMAS.  Twin sisters, Candace and Karli,  grew up around music – their parents were in an oldies country band called Moonshine County Express.  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.  In grade school, they began writing songs together, forming their first band at age 14.  In 2007 they entered Supernovas Battle of the Bands as the only duo among full bands – and they took home first place! That summer they recorded their first full-length album which was released August 2008.  In 2011, a song off that album called “Road to Nowhere” was featured in Edmonton the Musical, a musical which starred local bands, having them perform their original songs alongside the stage play.   Recently they have been performing all around Alberta, from Edmonton down to Medicine Hat.   They are currently spending time in the studio recording their next single set to be released early 2020.
