You might not have heard of Chris Shiflett but you’ve probably heard his music. As the lead guitarist of The Foo Fighters, Shiflett has played on some of the biggest albums and stages in the world. With all that success it might come as some surprise that Shiflett decided to temporarily hang up his electric guitar to focus on his songwriting. The resulting songs landed on his solo album, West Coast Town. They’re down to earth Americana songs pulled from Chris’s lifetime spent living on the West Coast. Listen to Chris Shiflett’s recent visit to Studio 1A in the player below and follow along his tour with the links below.
