You can catch them at The Rails on Thursday

Julian James has been around Melbourne’s live music scene since before he was allowed to drink in bars. Julian and his band The Moonshine State have a sound that mixes a love of moonshine-drinking finger-picking country with the southern swamp wail of a back porch fiddle. James has released four well-received albums to date, all of which he’s road-tested on frequent laps of our wide brown land.

From Melbourne’s back alley bars to Australia’s major festivals (Gympie Muster, Echuca Winter Blues, Tamworth CMF) Award-winning Julian James is loved by folk and blues audiences all over Australia, with his whiskey-drenched sound as much at home in 2023 as it would have been blaring out of the wireless in 1921. 

After spending the festive season at Woodford, James and the Moonshine Satet are heading toward Byron Bay this week to share some new year cheer.
