A siren from the shore, Moonshine Maybelline lures you with spellbinding ballads, mesmerizes with moody soundscapes and crashes your broken heart into their country-rock.
Catherine Foreman’s vocals and songs are the centerpiece of this 5-piece band from San Francisco. Sparks first flew when she teamed up with twang-rockers Bob Spector and Ted O’Connell of the Gold Diggers, and the lineup solidified with local pedal steel ace Ian Taylor Sutton and drummer at large Steve Pearson.
Moonshine Maybelline was introduced to the world with a live performance on college radio leader KALX , earning them a spot among KALX’s “Best of 2014” and a South by Southwest showcase, where they opened for hometown favorite Chuck Prophet.
MM’s “End Of The Road” EP was released in 2018 and has been featured on radio, including KPFA’s “America’s Back 40” program. The band continues to shine on the local scene with appearances ranging from The Fillmore Poster Room to Sweetwater Music Hall, and from the Mission District’s Make-Out Room to East Bay favorite Ivy Room.
Singer/Songwriter Dexter Garnier is a true San Francisco original. Moonshine Maybelline is delighted to introduce you to his heartfelt songs and guitar stylings. MM will go first, and let Dexter close it out.
Don’t be late, and don’t leave early!
"It is in doubt and not in faith that the salvation of the world is to be found. Faith is a delusion and a snare: a pitfall, a prison. It intimidates the intellect. With fear of eternal damnation religion crushes intellectual activity; with hero worship it destroys individuality; with hopes for the beyond it prevents the growth of ideals for the present. It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."
-- Job Harriman, 1902
