“Smoking is for brisket, drag racing and religious ceremonies. Not necessarily in that order.”
Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip shaking, belly laughing soul-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on. Whether on his 6-string Uke or his electric guitar or singing a cappella, Russell will entertain you like no one else. His original songs laced with magical-realism along with novel interpretations of popular songs old and new (George Jones, TLC, Leadbelly, T-Pain) are the true art that runs throughout. He’s Burl Ives meets Al Green; Hank, Jr. meets Teddy Pendergras. Wendell Berry meets Chuck Berry.
