The Mavericks recorded the tracks for ‘Moon & Stars’ across the US in Blackbird Studio (Nashville, Tennessee), Frogville Studios (Santa Fe, New Mexico) and Dockside Studio (Maurice, Louisiana). The result is an album that invokes both a timeless feel of a classic Mavericks release, while once again challenging genre conventions and pushing the boundaries of their melting pot sound.

Special guests on the album include  Maggie Rose, Nicole Atkins, the band’s own ‘Fantastic Five’ member Max Abrams and Sierra Ferrell who signs on the title track and first release. The band has also collaborated with songwriters such as Bernie Taupin, Sam Hollander, Wally Wilson, and more.
