Tales From The Heart Strings is a studio album by Australian Americana and roots duo Moonshine Coalition, released in April 2020.

Moonshine Coalition are Max Lees & Annie Dixon - an Americana Duo based in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by the sounds of Americana/ Appalachian artists such as Gillian Welch and the Dave Rawlings Machine, as well as some of the earlier country/blues artists, Moonshine Coalition perform an intoxicating blend of blues, roots and country music. 

This is what the duo have written about their new album Tales From The Heart Strings in the liner notes: “When thinking about and choosing a title for this album it occurred to us that the songs were, in one form or another, all about love. Different kinds of love for sure, but love nevertheless.

“For a Reason” tells of a young couple wanting to be in love whereas “Moonlight on the Bay” is about the first throes of a budding relationship. “Lena Blanche” depicts the unselfish love a mother has for her baby and “Pennyweight Flat” is the tragic story that unfolds as a young woman follows her husband to the Victorian goldfields in the early 1850's. Love of objects also plays a part in “Back Stairs” when a young woman encounters the unforeseen consequences of falling in love with a house. In “Whiskey Hole / A Prospector's Tale” the love of gold, whiskey and being the centre of attention is the motivation of the 'grizzled old prospector".

“Wild Foxes” speaks of the unbridled love of freedom in our carefree youth, and “On the Road” represents the way we feel doing what we love: travelling and playing music.”

The title of for the album they chose, Tales From The Heart Strings, seemed kind of fitting.

This album is on compact disc housed in a cardboard gatefold sleeve with a download code, pressed in Australia.
