Muddy Moonshine was founded in summer 2014. Original idea for this project was to have a small three person blues band (Jonne Rytkönen, Tero & Jarmo Ikala), to perform few pub shows. Moonshiners quickly developed own material and they needed to add some man power, so Saku Manninen joined to play drums and Jaakko Ruusulampi on bass guitar. 3rd guitarist slot was for Niko Turunen. This lineup recorded the bands first EP “ Distilled in Finland” in Porvoo Magnusborg studios 2015.
Muddy Moonshine continued to make their own music and played shows in good pace. Jaakko decided to left the group and was replaced by Kim Sandström. Niko was replaced by Stefan Granroth. Just before Moonshiners were about to start recording their debut album, Tero’s health issues started and he was replaced by Aleksi Ahokas.
