I met Russ through Twitter where he is promoting his music. I have to say I was very impressed with the tracks he sent me to listen to, and my favourite track so far is Promised Land. Their main style is country rock, and if you want to here some more tracks from Russ and his band. Just go to the website and subscribe, you will get a link to some free tracks, it’s well worth a listen. Social media links are at the end of this article, check them out.

In an industry that currently thrives on auto-tune, drum machines and pop templates, Russ Still and the Moonshiners brings some light and authenticity to the radio waves. The six-piece outfit meshing country, country rock and classic rock formed their roots in Atlanta, Georgia and are triggering the interests of listeners tailored to staples such as the west coast sound of the 70s singer songwriters, Southern Rock, Alt Country and Outlaw Country. There’s something here for everyone.

The band consists of front man Russ Still (vocals, guitar), Ben Still (guitar, vocals), Mitch Flanders (drums, vocals), Cam Still (keys), Derek Ferwerda (guitar) and Ed Usher (bass, vocals). With four records under their belt including The Mission: Music (2006), The Russ Still Project (2013), White Lightnin’ (2014) and Still Cookin (2016), it’s clear the band has learned how to make their music their way as they pay tribute to those who came before them. ~ Russ Still and The Moonshiners

Here are a few quotes about the band – we think they do a better job of describing the band than we ever could:

“Russ Still & The Moonshiners are an award-winning band from Atlanta, Georgia that is hellbent on delivering authentic country rock to listeners all over. With this single called ‘Promised Land’, they show off this old-school sound that exemplifies what they are all about.”

– The Widows Peak Bandit, Ratings Game Music (May 08, 2017)

“Still Cookin” sounds exactly like how the band looks: Cowboy hats, worn-in jeans, black shirts, leather boots, and I imagine double-shots of neat whiskey and smoky rural bars are in reach. The band seems to be honest and true to themselves. They look how they sound, straight up and down, raw, authentic country rock with no surprises.

“The Country music world produces some of the best performers in the world. Some of them fly under the radar and don’t always get the recognition they deserve. “Promised Land,” a new release by Russ Still and The Moonshiners (off their album “Still Cookin”) is a prime example of the excellence contemporary country music has to offer.”
