Exclusive Premiere: Moon Shine - "Exile Of Youth"

Take a listen to this emotive and highly-personal track from the rising singer/songwriter.

We’re always exploring for new voices to share with everyone and we’ve found an exciting new Americana/Alt-Country singer/songwriter we think you’ll love. Moon Shine blends fresh, effusive vibes with a deep reverence for tradition on her debut album The Land in Between (out November 11). “Exile of Youth” is a track from this album and we are stoked to be able to bring this song for you to take a listen to.

Moon Shine worked with acclaimed producer and guitarist Teddy Kumpel to record The Land in Between and the record, which was recorded at Atomic Sound in Brooklyn, features several A-list session musicians including bassist Cat Popper, drummer Steve Williams, Todd Caldwell on keys, Charlie Burnham on fiddle, Mark Spencer on pedal steel, and the late Don Huffington (Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams) playing the drums on the track “I Tried to Keep on Loving You.”

This song, “Exile of Youth,” is about Moon Shine’s father and is immersed at once in remorse and reflection while being flush with emotive acoustic slide guitars that set the tone for the personal track.

Here’s a quote from Moon Shine (Angie Glasscock)

"Exile of Youth" is a song about my father’s early life on his parent’s ranch in the Texas Hill Country. After Dad’s younger brother was born in 1941, he was sent to live with his grandparents in Tennessee, while his brother remained with his parents. A sense of abandonment and longing to return home haunted my father throughout his life, and “put a hole in his heart, the size of Texas." - Angie Glasscock
