Austin-based outfit Shinyribs, described as “Swamp Pop” and a Soul band, has joined Jesse Dayton’s Hardcharger line and Blue Élan Records. Their first single, “Simply Belong to You” is out now with the full album, Transit Damage, slated for release on July 14, 2023.

While “Simply Belong To You” may seem like an upbeat celebration of relationships, it’s cited as “a deeper meditation on the forces that can tear a relationship apart.”

Frontman Kevin Russell shares:

It’s a very personal song. …I probably never would have put it on a record, because it’s just too personal. I’m not a confessional kinda writer.

Shinyribs is a nine, and sometimes 10-piece outfit, but it’s ultimately the brainchild of Kevin Russell, who grew up in Beaumont, TX and Shreveport, LA. Transit Damage is Shinyribs’ ninth album and was produced by Grammy winner Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Raul Malo, Deer Tick, Greensky Bluegrass), who helped shape the record.

Shinyribs are known for their dynamic live show and have crossed the country playing to sold out venues, often with Russell sporting a cape that lights up, and wearing his fancy dance shoes. Russell and crew are getting ready to hit the road with many dates throughout the Spring and Summer.
