Central California’s Moonshine Bandits have released the track “Saturday Afternoon” featuring Average Joe’s Entertainment’s country singer Sunny Ledfurd online at http://www.facebook.com/moonshinebandits . Moonshine Bandits will release their new album “Whiskey and Women" through Suburban Noize Records on April 12th, 2011. Ledfurd also produced and collaborated with the Bandits on a new song entitled "Los Banos" that will appear on the "Whiskey and Women" project.
"We reached out to Sunny to work with him, and he immediately came up with the concept and hook for 'Saturday Afternoon.' We got Ty Weathers for Tyrant productions to produce it and Eric Hoegemeyer to mix it," commented Bird from Moonshine Bandits. "We wrote our verses and the song took on a life of its own to become a summer song that you can light one up and throw a few back."
Moonshine Bandits' new album “Whiskey and Women" features guest appearances by alt-rocker Big B, Atlanta-based Rehab ("Bartender Song (Sittin' At A Bar)") and Ledfurd. The album also features production by some of the best in both the hip-hop and country worlds including Tyrant (E-40, Bubba Sparxxx, Tech N9ne), Shannon Houchins (TLC, Colt Ford, Usher), and former Uncle Kracker drummer Eric Hoegemeyer.
If there has ever been a way to describe Ledfurd, it has got to be his ability to defy categorization. Born in Chattanooga, TN and growing up in Gaston County, NC, he taught himself guitar at age 15. He knew then that playing the guitar was how he would make a living. Inspired by Guns n Roses, Snoop Dogg and David Allan Coe among others, Ledfurd’s songs continually mix genres and push the envelope.
"I've always liked artists that you can tell they have something to say. They're not just singing some words 'cause it sounds cool," says Sunny Ledfurd. Never one to shy away from a good time... drinking and women are involved in much of the music. With songs like "I Don't Remember Last Night," "Pontoon Boat," "Adderall," and "Myrtle Beach," Ledfurd takes you through life in the south as he sees it and lives it.
