Kevin Russell (aka Shinyribs) may be one of the few who embrace the term "swampy" as a positive adjective. Following nearly two decades in cult-favorite The Gourds, Russell launched his Shinyribs project as an opportunity to incorporate all of the unique styles and influences he's absorbed.
With the new album Fog & Bling, Shinyribs has captured a sound that is funky, soulful, and packed with the high-energy entertainment that encompasses his hometown regions of Texas and Louisiana. As is made abundantly clear during their JPR Live Session, on stage, Russell's a consumate entertainer, from the the tightly crafted tunes to the always flashy stage attire.
The full Shinyribs band features Winfield Cheek on Keyboards, Keith Langford on Drums, Jeff Brown on Bass, the Tijuana Trainwreck Horns, and The Shiny Soul Sisters - Kelley Mickwee & Alice Spencer.
JPR Live Sessions are recorded with Audix microphones. Located in Wilsonville, Oregon, Audix designs, engineers, and manufactures high performing, innovative products that contribute to the advancement of the professional audio industry.
