“This is my dirt.” she humbly says. A Henderson State University/Ellis College of Arts & Sciences Alumni, Anna moved back from Dallas, TX earlier this year after being in the great beyond 20 yrs. During her walk-about, she has shared the stage with Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Radney Foster, Texas Country heart throb Deryl Dodd, Blues Legend Gerry Moss, and opened for several country and rock artists from Little Big Town to Uncle Kracker.
A favorite recording musician in Dallas, Austin & Houston, led her to many touring opportunities in the US and Internationally. Prior to her return, she was coaching & developing artists, including producing & managing up and coming talent for UltraxRecords & Septien School of Contemporary Music, both located in Dallas. But she hasn’t always been living the dream…
This pierced, tattooed, ripped-up jean wearing rocknroll evangelist gave up the corporate rat race, as the ﬁrst step to her liberation. Although professionally performing & coaching “on the side” for several years to a full time job, life just wasn’t quite right. “I grew a pair about 5 yrs back and ﬁnally put down the corner ofﬁce. I wasn’t living anymore, my purpose wasn’t being fulﬁlled. Yeah, I was playing but my soul weighed less. It wasn’t until I made the decision to go into music full time that I kinda felt delivered…”
Brandon Brazeal Rhythm Guitar, BGV
The Bearded Rhythm Man & partner in crime to Anna...
Brandon was raised in the river bottoms of Aberdeen AR, he picked up the guitar around sixteen & started living the life of the “outlaw” he was singing about.
Black Sabbath struck a heavy chord with him early on & it certainly influences his original music with Red Devil Lies today.
He brings the grit & growl to MoonshineMafia.

An Arizona desert transplant, Carl brings swagger & load'd guns to the stage. With 30 yrs exp in the biz, from music to tour security, he's been dubbed, "The Enforcer", and this tall drink of water is not to be messed with! But dont get us wrong, he's got a soft side too. This gentle giant, will politely ask you to step outside, before he kicks your ass...no need to spill the moonshine - which he brewed by the way! Yup...you read that right folks - he's our Master Distiller in the mafia distillery. And a damn good one too!!
Carl is a multi instrumentalist & sings ridiculous harmonies - he lays it down heavy in the band…completing a wicked solid rhythm section. If he's not on stage, he's up on the hill firing up the still, swig'n shine & keep'n time! Load'd pistol in one hand, mason jar in the other...
