Shinyribs performing at the ACL Live Moody Theater in Austin, Texas on December 21, 2019, with Kevin Russell, Winfield Cheek, Jeff Brown, Keith Langford, Tijuana Trainwreck Horns, Mark Wilson, Tiger Anaya, Alice Spencer, and Kelley Mickwee.
Shinyribs is the continuation of Kevin Russell’s musical journey that began in Beaumont, Texas 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, Louisiana where he formed his first band. Picket Line Coyotes were 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. It’s a hip shaking, belly laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on, kissed on by this world-class band featuring Winfield Cheek on Keyboards, Keith Langford on Drums, Jeff Brown on Bass, the Tijuana Trainwreck Horns, and The Shiny Soul Sisters - Kelley Mickwee & Alice Spencer. Whether on his 6 string Uke or his Electric guitar or singing a cappella, Russell will entertain you like no one else.
