Moonrise Over Ridgway from Stillhouse Junkies

Dark Shadow Recording has a second single from Stillhouse Junkies, who took the 2021 IBMA World of Bluegrass by storm with their bluegrass power trio sound.

The song is one called Moonrise Over Ridgway, written and sung by bassist Cody Tinnin. Stephen Mougin, engineer and producer for the band’s upcoming album, Small Towns, explained that this one just made it in under the wire.

Moonrise Over Ridgway was one of the late-entry songs submitted by the band for this album. We had spent a great deal of time rehearsing and tweaking arrangements on the other songs when Cody mentioned that he had another tune to offer. When I heard it, I was floored. Cool story, cool melody, and a total Stillhouse Junkies vibe.”

Along with Cody, the Junkies are Alissa Wolf on fiddle and vocals, and Fred Kosak on mandolin, guitar, and vocals.

Moonrise Over Ridgway is a tribute to the Uncompahgre Wilderness near Ridgway, CO, not far from where the band members reside. Its imagery encompasses all sorts of odd companions, including cowboys and aliens, along with a mysterious disappearance.
