Greater Los Angeles area band Moonsville Collective will be releasing their new album on October 30, 2015 via Rock Ridge Music. The new album, entitled Heavy Howl, is a raw, rootsy storm of Americana with a mix of mandolin, banjo, slide guitar, drums, harmonica and fiddle. The group, which has seven members (including two generations from the same family), was born out of a string of old-time jam sessions and songwriting circles. Moonsville Collective have held on to that communal spirit, making big-sounding music for a community that is continually growing.
“There are seven of us in the band, and everyone helps shape these songs,” explains Ryan Welch (vocals, guitar, banjo). “We all bring a lot of influences to the table, and it becomes this big pot that gets stirred and mixed up into our own sound.”
