Shinyribs defies genres as an Austin, Texas-based 8-piece Swamp-Pop-Soul supergroup fronted by the outrageously charismatic Kevin Russell. The band began in 2007 as a solo side-project of singer/guitar player Kevin Russell, then of long-time Austin band, The Gourds. All styles of American music are touched on by this world-class band, featuring Winfield Cheek on Keyboards, Keith Langford on Drums, Jeff Brown on Bass, the Tijuana Trainwreck Horns - Mark Wilson and Tiger Anaya, and The Shiny Soul Sisters - Kelley Mickwee and Alice Spencer. They appeared on the 2018 PBS broadcast of Austin City Limits Live, and are two time award winners for the Austin Chronicle's Best Band of the Year, and received Album of the Year recognition for "I Got Your Medicine."
