Orange County/Los Angeles-based Americana string band Moonsville Collective, known for its traditional mix of old time, folk, country, bluegrass, and rhythm and blues and has become an integral part of both the California surf and motorcycle cultures. With their tag line “California Goodtime” a perfect pairing with many apparel and outdoor brands, the band has twice taken part in the Outdoor Retailer Convention hosted annually in Salt Lake City, Utah, and has collaborated with and played at parties/events for brands such as HippyTree, Jansport, Matix, Iron & Resin, and Sanuk. Formed in August of 2011, they hit the ground running, playing some 250 shows throughout California, Nevada, and Utah in the two years following. Their heavy schedule allowed for them to quickly refine their craft and solidify their family mentality, which has been essential to the success of the group. They are often spoken of as embracing the sensibilities of folk legends Levon Helm (of The Band) and Bob Dylan, the high energy of Old Crow Medicine Show, and clever lyrics like those of Hank Williams and Huddy “Ledbelly” Ledbetter. Their hard work has not gone unnoticed by the local industry, and Moonsville Collective has been awarded “2013 Best Country/Americana Band” by the OC Music Awards, “2012 Best Live Band” by OC Weekly, and named “Best Bluegrass/Americana Band in Orange County” by CBS Los Angeles. Moonsville Collective has shared the stage with acts such as Willie Watson (Old Crow Medicine Show), Donavan Frankenreiter, The White Buffalo, Wanda Jackson, Frank Fairfield, Rose’s Pawn Shop, Sean & Zander, and The Dustbowl Revival. The debut full length Moonsville Collective release, Cradle to the Grave, is now paired with a live EP (originally known as the Salamander Sessions). Heavy Howl the new album still in the works, was recorded at Ear Witness Studios in Whittier, CA.
