  THE MUSIC

Not wanting to get pidgeon-holed into a genre, Shane's music is best described as folk rock with a lot of heart.

 

His current album, the 2015 "Kings Highway", is a complete soundscape produced and engineered by Bob Rupe (Sparklehorse/Cracker/The Silos) Silos) at his studio in Richmond, VA. Cooley and Rupe played most of the instruments themselves, with help from Johnny Hott (drums), Bob Wlos (pedal steel), Hayley Rupe (background vocals), and Trevor Nealon (keys). Finishing touches were added by Austin's PJ Herrington (Asleep at the Wheel), who also produced the second to last song on the album.

  ABOUT SHANE COOLEY

"The story goes like this – KUTX Eklektikos host John Aielli himself admitted he fell in love with the music of Shane Cooley one summer when he heard his music at a local coffee shop. Aielli was captivated. “I’ve worked in radio since 1963, and over the years I’ve learned to recognize talent,” he said recently. “There was something in his sound that made me want to listen…” There’s proof positive to this testimonial with Cooley’s release of Kings Highway, an album rich in roots, Americana, a bit of rock and eclectic touches of pop."  ~Laurie Gallardo, KUTX Austin Music Minute
