Moonshiner Collective is the San Luis Obispo, California based musical project of multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Dan Curcio, drawing from a diverse range of folk, rock, and Americana influences. The name was derived from the experiences Curcio had playing music under the moon and stars with friends while living in a yurt overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the small California beach town of Cayucos. Nestled up on a vast hillside, it was a place to share songs, stories, food, and drink with musicians and travelers who were passing through town and needing a place to camp out for the night. The powerful communal vibe and spirit of the yurt property jam sessions gave Curcio the desire to create a musical project that could draw from a wide variety of talents and inspirations and continually evolve while being rooted in his uniquely soulful and upbeat brand of folk rock music.

While the instrumentation, styles, and sounds continually evolve, Moonshiner Collective songs have always been centered around family, love, optimism, nature, and the power of community with Curcio’s distinctively warm and soulful voice and introspective lyrics as the unifying thread. The music’s unifying positivity bridges gaps in generations and genres with a sound and message that combines good time music with a soulful, passionate depth.
