Biography

Florida/Georgia rockers Voodoo Moonshine - a “bluesy groove rock band”, was
formed in Memphis, TN in 2003 by lead guitarist, Jeff Losawyer. The debut album,
Decade of Decay, was released in March 2005, and was well received throughout
Europe. A tour was booked, including shows in England, Ireland, and Scotland. Due to
the album’s success they were voted “Number One Band” seven times in England, and
six times in Japan. In mid-2005, Voodoo Moonshine was introduced in Dublin, Ireland
and quickly became one of the top three requested bands there.
Their debut album received rave reviews in many music publications including R.I.P. Magazine.2006 saw the band’s popularity continue to rise, and rock radio around the world stoodup and took notice. Voodoo Moonshine could be heard in Portugal, Greece, Canada and of course, at home in America. Many times, during the year, the band’s songs charted ahead of some of rock's so-called heavy hitters, like Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Guns N Roses and the Scorpions. The album Decade of Decay continued to do extremely well deep into 2007, more than two full years after its release. As the year wound down, the band took some much needed, and well deserved, time off. This eventually led to guitarist Jeff Losawyer's work on a solo album. Jeff continued to write music during this time, and never gave up his passion to play.

Fast forward, and suddenly 12 years had passed. Interestingly enough, he heard Pedrosinging in a YouTube video and really liked what he heard. He took a chance and reached out to Pedro to see if he would be interested in singing some of his songs. Initially he didn’t receive a very warm response. As a matter of fact, he was mostly ignored, but he knew he had found the right man for the job, so he was persistent. His persistence paid off and Jeff was invited to Daytona Beach Bike Week 2018 to jam with Pedro and his bandmates in his cover band. Needless to say, things went well with Pedro, Hector Acevedo, and Rick Gatheman merging to bring back Voodoo Moonshine.

Pedro Espada on vocals, Jeff Losawyer on guitar, Hector Acevedo on bass, Rick Gatheman rounds out the rhythm section. Voodoo Moonshine released their full length sophomore CD "Bottom of the Barrel" on February 4, 2022.

Their song "Give it to me recently charted at #28 on Billboards Mainstream Rock Chart, while their song "Bring It Down" charted at #201. They recently won an award for "Album of the Year" at The 8th Annual Josie Music Awards 2022 in Nashville, TN, plus two gold awards at the International Singer Songwriters Awards Show 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia for "Band of the Year" and "Band Single of the Year" for the song "Bring it Down", and “Best Rock Song” for “Bring It Down” at the World Songwriting Awards - Spring 2022, in addition to many other awards.

“Future plans…shows, shows, and shows. Fans can expect a set of big energy versatile songs that everyone should like. Working on songs for the next album already and continued growth of the band and fan base.”
