about

"Maki's voice is supple and soft, blending nicely with the spirited instrumentation. There's a loose, but never sloppy, vibe throughout, reflecting the fact that this is a bunch of friends clearly having a fun time making music together. This is as warming as whiskey swigged around a campfire." - EXCLAIM

"The sweet-singing Sudbury school teacher, who deserves all the apples she gets, preaches and teaches with ragged country honesty and heart." - GLOBE AND MAIL

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, Ontario 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.

Track Name: Lose My Mind
Lose My Mind

I am bound to lose my mind
Watch me fall
I am bound to lose my mind
Watch me fall
To the black and endless sky
I am darkness in your eye
And I am bound to lose my mind
I am bound to lose my mind
Watch me fall
I am bound to lose my mind
Watch me fall
To the red hot drifting sands
I am fire in your hands
And I am bound to lose my mind
Track Name: The Signal
The Signal

When the signal finds your heart
You will come undone
Veins like webs they fall apart
And you will come undone
Dress you up, lay you down
In the morning sun
Like the rock beneath the sea
You will come undone
When the band begins to play
I will come undone
Vines like arms they break away
I will come undone
Dress me up, take me down
In the morning sun
Like the sand beneath my feet
I will come undone
When the signal finds your heart
You will come undone
Veins like webs they fall apart
And you will come undone
Dress you up, lay you down
In the morning sun
Like the rain upon the ground
Falling one by one
Track Name: Hanging On
Hanging On

In midwinter when the sun goes down
We roll on into town
You call to us from the mountain tops
Like the devil calls to lust
You say
Dream on dream on
You keep hanging on
Dream on dream on
You keep hanging on
In midsummer when the sun is high
The world rolls on by
I call your name from the valley low
Like thunder calls to rain
You say
Dream on dream on
You keep hanging on
Dream on dream on
You keep hanging on
Track Name: Shine On My Mind
Shine On My Mind

Asleep in the daytime
Asleep in the nighttime
Wide awake when the whole world has gone down
Living in a nightmare
Waiting for a daydream
Waiting for the sunshine
To shine on my mind
And shut it down
Awake in the daytime
Awake in the nighttime
Fast asleep when the whole world has gone down
Living in a daydream
Waiting for a nightmare
Waiting for the moonshine
To shine on my mind
And shut it down
Shine on my mind
And shut it down
Track Name: Fade To Grey
Fade To Grey

Your days are spent with no one
And no one is spent on you
How many nights can you waste away
Before you fade to grey
They’re knocking on your front door
They’re writing on your wall
How many lies can you hide behind
Before you’re colour blind
Get up get out get going
Get lost get gone get away
Get light get high
Get way up in the sky
There are things you want to tell them
And things you want to hear
How many ways can you fight the waves
Before you float away
Get up get out get going
Get lost get gone get away
Get light get high
Get way up in the sky
Track Name: Boredom Blues
Boredom Blues

My papa wants a yacht, my momma wants a jag
But I’m in slow motion and my life’s a drag
My sister rides a pony
My best friend is gone
I stay out all night and I sleep all day long
My boyfriend wants a lover
He’s down on a bended knee
It’s hard to make things happen with a girl like me
My papa wants a yacht, my momma wants a jag
But I’m in slow motion and my life’s a drag
My girlfriend is a midwife
My roommate’s a slob
I’ve got good intentions, but I can’t hold a job
My cat wanders lonely
My patience is wearing thin
I wish I had some money, I’d do that sucker in
My papa wants a yacht, my momma wants a jag
But I’m in slow motion and my life’s a drag
Track Name: Fought The Cattle
Fought The Cattle

I climbed a mountain, jumped a fence
Climbed a tree, jumped a river
To get you to see, to get you to see
Darkness comes and you can’t see
Darkness comes to rescue me
I took a job, fought the cattle
Took a test, fought the battle
To get you to see, to get you to see
Darkness comes and you can’t see
Darkness comes to rescue me
I sold my name, broke my back
Sold my key, broke my vow
To get you to see, to get you to see
Darkness comes and you can’t see
Darkness comes to rescue me
Track Name: Golden Thorns
Golden Thorns

I’m not that innocent
I’ll testify
Lean in and listen
I’ll tell you why
Ten years today
I stole an angel’s halo
Placed it on the vine
Watched the golden thorns grow
I’m not that innocent
I’ll testify
Lean in and listen
I’ll tell you why
Saw a man in armour
Resting on the pavement
Took his sword
Locked him in the basement
There’s nothing I can do
To keep away from you
Track Name: When I Go
When I Go

All I don’t know, all I don’t show
Won’t bother me when I go
All my mistakes, all my bad ways
Won’t bother me when I go
When I go
You will be there
You will be waiting
All I go through, all I hold on to
Won’t follow me when I go
When I go
You will be there
You will be waiting
With the sun in your eyes
Down by the river
Track Name: Ode
Ode

You are my one true friend
You'll be with me until the end
Until I'm old and dead and come back again
You smile and you shine so bright
You guide me all through the night
When it's dark and it's cold and there's no moonlight
You are my one true friend
You'll be with me until the end
Until I'm old and dead and come back again
I won't mistreat you
I'll try to comfort you
When you're down and out and feeling blue
You are my one true friend
You'll be with me until the end
Until I'm old and dead and come back again
