Winnie Brave is a husband-and-wife, highway-storming, americana/soul duo. They can often be found touring all across the country in their 1976 Winnebago and they’ll be hitting the road again shortly (dates below) to support their latest single Moonshine.
It is a driving song that is perfect for those wide open stretches of highways and backroads. It builds intensity as it moves along the open road, culminating in a great big sing-along that will certainly have your fingers tapping on the wheel as your destination comes into view. The song was recorded at Catherine North Studios in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. An old church-turned-recording studio nestled in the heart of the steel city, we love how the old cathedral comes to life on the recording.
Moonshine is the first single to be released from Winnie Brave sophomore album “Cheap Gin” (Oct 3rd) and features Amy McIsaac on vocals and acoustic guitar, Brad McIsaac on bass, Christine Bougie on lap steel, Adam Cannon on drums and Lauren Campbell on backing vocals.
The video that accompanies the song was filmed by Matthew Waring and was intended to show what life on the road (and every day) is like for them. The day they were filming there were multiple tornado warnings being issued over CBC for that area making things “very interesting”.
