Shane Cooley's new album,
hits all the right notes
By Mike Holtzclaw, The Daily Press
"..an absolute triumph.'
CD RATES TEXAS WALL!

"Deliver" by Shane Cooley. Shane Cooley & the Lucky Kings performing "Deliver" at Shane's album release party at Spider House Ballroom in Austin, TX on 2/27/15. "Deliver" is on Shane Cooley's new album, 'Kings Highway'.
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."

Sometimes the destination is only the beginning of the journey. Shane Cooley's new album, Kings Highway marks the 28 year old singer/songwriter's arrival to musical self-actualization, and promises great things on the horizon.
