Shinyribs :: Gulf Coast Museum


ShinyRibs-GulfCoastMuseum-CoverKevin Russell is de leider van de fantastische Texaanse rootsband The Gourds. Daarnaast heeft hij de hobbygroep Shinyribs. Gulf Coast Museum is hun tweede CD en wederom meer dan geslaagd. Iets strakker dan zijn werk met The Gourds, iets meer soulinvloeden deze keer. Acht fraaie eigen nummers en een hartverscheurende cover van de Harold Melvin-hit If You Don’t Know Me By Now; als duet met Brandy Zdan en begeleid door enkel een ukelele.

Kevin “Shinyribs” Russell is known as the front man of the Austin, TX musical combo, The Gourds. Born in Beaumont, raised in The Church Of Christ, he found his calling in the biker bars of Louisiana at the tender age of seventeen playing a hybrid of loud country blues rock and psychedelic swamp jangle for the grumpy ingrates congregated there. Since 1994 The Gourds have become a favorite of the Americana/Hippie Jam/Genre Bending scene. Russell, in search of an outlet for his massive stockpile of songs, began performing solo shows under the pseudonym Shinyribs as early as 2006. After playing a monthly show in Houston for the two years he honed Shinyribs into one of the most interesting roots music experiences around. A revolving line up of Austin talent has evolved into the current top notch band; Gourds drummer, Keith Langford, Cerebral Pony Bass man Jeff Brown and Kentucky Fried Keyboard Whiz Winfield Cheek.
