Moonshine Coalition are Max Lees & Annie Dixon - an Americana Duo based in Melbourne, Australia.
Inspired by the sounds of Americana/ Appalachian artists such as Gillian Welch and the Dave Rawlings Machine, as well as some of the earlier country/blues artists, Moonshine Coalition performs an intoxicating blend of blues, roots and country music. The group has a strong focus on vocal harmony arrangements, which, together with Max’s National resonator guitars and Annie’s five string banjo produce an original and enthralling sound. They have received enthusiastic responses from audiences who love their energy and passion.
"These guys have an immaculate sound... so clear and crisp. I hear lots of bands but rarely do I hear live music at this level of fidelity."
David Johnson | Upwey RSL
"Their wonderful 'less is more' approach to music really works. Moonshine Coalition's original songs are honest, heartfelt & authentic."
Ron King | An Acoustic Companion [3MDR fm]
"Moonshine Coalition have managed to put out an album that is contemporary yet reminiscent of years gone by; their harmonies are superb and the interplay twixt guitar and banjo is outstanding."
Tony Bates | 3MDR Music Librarian
