The Shiners

See Rock City


More rocking than their debut offering Bonnie Blue, See Rock City is still defined by ex-Dirtballs Wes and Jyl Freed’s chilling and unsettling take on bluegrass and banjo-led honky-tonk. From the punk-y “Hurricane Blues” to the down-home stomp of “Lookout Mountain Girl,” The Shiners’ approach their country music with passion and sincerity, but in a lighthearted, unpretentious tone.

See Rock City is an album of all-embracing, traditionalist folk music that refuse to limit itself to any one inspiration in particular, and instead do whatever it damn well pleases at any one time. Inspired, informal and sincere.
