Singer-songwriter Kevin “Shinyribs” Russell is probably best known as the frontman for Austin band The Gourds, a genre bending Americana outfit formed in 1994. Feeling a bit antsy creatively, Russell started playing solo shows under the name “Shinyribs” in 2006. The shows quickly became notorious for being wild affairs with Shinyribs’ music compelling everyone to dance, and Shinyribs dancing himself. His 2010 solo debut album, Well After Awhile, attracted even more fans, pushing Shinyribs even further into the spotlight. A follow up album is due out later this spring.
On Wednesday night, Shinyribs will play a show at Saxon Pub. Listen to Shinyribs’ performance caught live in Studio 1A right HERE!
