Local pop quartet Shivery Shakes found they had more than enough material to work on for their first full-length release. They had about 20 rough tracks on their hands, after a year-long process of non-stop writing, then whittled that huge number down to a solid 12-song set that they decided would be most fitting on the album. Writing songs was not the issue. However, the band now faces what most musicians have to deal with – the costs of putting said album together and promoting it.
Nowadays, bands have the option of using to Kickstarter in support of their efforts, and that’s the route Shivery Shakes decided to take. Their campaign wraps up on July 23rd. Meanwhile, they’re focused on recording the new tracks in producer Danny Reisch‘s studio, and looking forward to a release date this summer.
Shivery Shakes are on the bill for a show tonight at the Historic Scoot Inn, 1308 E. 4th St. at Navasota. Also performing tonight are One Hundred Flowers, Midwestern folkster The Oarsman and local pop artist Taft Mashburn, along with a special (unannounced) musical guest. Doors open early at 7 p.m., and the music starts at 7:30 p.m. Recommended.
