Our Story

The Hills Blues Club at The Mount Helena Tavern in Perth, Western Australia was the birthplace of the band in 2012.
During a meeting at a club night, Hedge sat in for a few songs with the already established trio and things really got cooking.

Like a fine sour mash, The Moonshine Trust was distilled out of  their musical backgrounds in a trust founded on friendship, good music and good times that delivers Rockin Blues with a Short Fuse.

The Moonshine Trust are four seasoned musicians from the Perth Hills dedicated to writing and performing our own blend of strong, riff driven songs with roots in rock, blues, metal and jazz.

The band is a favourite at festivals and pub gigs for their honest, powerful performances that feature PJ Whilliers' killer guitar playing and Hedges' bluesy horn and harp playing their original songs.
A 5 track EP of original songs was recorded and released for the 2014 Blues at Bridgetown Festival where we played 4 shows.

In October 2018 they released our second CD of 8 new  original song and 4 remastered songs from the 2014 which is available at Spotify, Amazon and Itunes as well as from this website.

Work has already started on a new album.
