NEWS: Kate Maki releases Moonshine on Tuesday, May 24

MP3 "Lose My Mind" from Moonshine:

Moonshine is the fifth record from Kate Maki, grade school teacher by day, songwriter by night. It is the lively northern companion to Maki's previous introverted desert album, Two Song Wedding.

With aspirations of recording in her basement around one microphone, Maki invited a group of veteran musician friends from Cuff The Duke, The Pinecones, Fembots, and The Minotaurs to Sudbury for a couple days of fun in the snow. On December 20 and 21, 2008, during one of the coldest weeks in history, underground and under a full moon, in between saunas and gourmet feasts, the band worked through the songs quickly and effortlessly. Drums, upright bass, guitars, pedal steel, piano, organ, accordion, and harmonized vocals forge the album's full, live sound. More of a reunion than a recording session, Moonshine reflects the unexpected and endearing moments that can only come from great players playing great songs.

Kate Maki has been recording and touring since 2003. She has collaborated live and on record with a number of fellow songwriters including Ruth Minnikin, Howe Gelb, Dale Murray, Nathan Lawr, and most recently with Frederick Squire. When Kate is not on tour, she divides her time between substitute teaching and managing her independent record label.
