Shinyribs is the continuation of Kevin Russell’s musical journey that began in Beaumont, TX when, at 14, he found his father’s guitar under his bed, along with a sewing machine, a billy club and a box of comic books.

Luckily, he chose the guitar.

Following his family’s oil boom and bust migratory path he landed in Shreveport, LA where he formed his first band. Picket Line Coyotes was a Husker Du meets Elvis Costello hybrid that lived and died between the “Arklatexabamassippi” borders much like their unfortunate animal namesake.

That’s what took him to Austin where The Gourds were born from those Coyote ashes.

That storied band of pumpkins came to an end after 18 years of good times and hard travelin’.

From that point on Russell, has been riding high on the Shinyribs river of country-soul, swamp-funk and tickle.

A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit, truly something not to be missed. It’s a unique musical experience and an original expression of colorful musical heritage.
