New Artist Alert: Moonshine Heather
Thu, 12 Dec 2013 15:03:24
Moonshine Heather are an alternative singer-songwriter duo based in Philadelphia, featuring Alexandra Berenson and Maura Mullen on guitar and vocals. Using pristine harmonies, and a wide range of influences including CSNY, The Supremes, Beck, and Jefferson Airplane, Moonshine Heather's sound is a developed mixture of folk, R&B, rock and roll, and indie pop.
The two met four years ago when they lived in the same dorm, and after playing shows at local venues and dive bars, gained a local following. The members of Moonshine Heather have been playing music since childhood, and come from a jazz and Motown background, as well as one rooted in punk and folk traditions.

Moonshine Heather are working hard on their debut studio release, featuring collaborations with many local Philadelphia musicians. Recorded at Drexel University Studios, the self-titled Moonshine Heather EP is out now.
