The Shadow Shakers – Gimme Whatcha Got

 

The Shadow Shakers are a dynamic band full of sassy melodic vocals, thumpin’ double bass slaps, twangy guitar riffs, hoppin’ drum beats and a jumpin’ sax. With elements of rockabilly, jump blues, jungle and swing, this all-singing high-energy quintet is all about entertaining their audiences. High octane tunes are mixed with slower sassy songs, perfect for live dancing!

The background of long-standing blues & rock ‘n roll musicians Foxy Murphy (guitar) and Willo Brien (double bass), together with that of well-seasoned jazz & cabaret front woman, Truly DiVine, brings an experienced combo that can adapt to any audience and space.

Their first album “Gimme Whatcha Got” is a mix of their favorite vintage songs, with added pizzazz from legendary Kentucky harmonica virtuoso, J.D. Wilkes, from The Legendary Shack Shakers on 3 of the tunes.

Since the album launch in September 2019, the band is getting Air Play with Ronan Collins on RTE1, and with Ann Marie Kelly on Midlands FM, various shows on Dublin City FM and Liffey Sound FM.

Close Your Eyes

 

In the Spring of 2013, Truly and pianist Josh Johnston resumed a lost friendship and began working together on a string of successful shows along various themes. The first – Burning Love – explored the dark side of love through music and story and the shows that followed – Dietrich’s Angels, Dreaming Of Doris and Screen Sirens – focused on the music made famous by a succession of amazing screen icons. This year, they decided to record some of their favourite tunes from these shows, initially to send to venues and promoters. In the end, they recorded ten songs in four and a half hours and it was decided that as they were sounding so good, it would be a shame to only let the industry hear them. With another session, they would have enough for an album. That is what they have done.

The resulting collection, Close Your Eyes, was recorded in Cauldron Studios in Dublin with engineer Michael Manning and is a series of recordings of which they are intensely proud. From the tender, romantic It’s Magic (Doris Day) and Try Your Wings (Blossom Dearie) to the playful, cheeky Johnny (Marlene Dietrich) and The Heat Is On (Rita Hayworth), the disc is an intimate collection which gives an effect not unlike having Truly & Josh in your living room singing you gently through the night.
