He doesn’t talk about it much, but Shane has been busy in the studio as well as the shaping barn.
According to New Times, the album is: "effusive, bubbling over with optimism, even on the fourth track, the tongue-in-cheek Sad Songs: ‘Oh, they don’t make songs sad enough anymore,’ Stoneman sings on a song that’s got way too much awesome pedal steel by Flying Burrito Brother Tony Paoletta to be sad.”
Over the past couple months, Shane and his bandmates have played songs from the new album at Sweet Springs Saloon, Barefoot Concerts on the Green at Sea Pines Golf Course, and Beers at the Pier in Baywood. His next gig will be Surf Nite at The Siren in Morro Bay, when Shane Stoneman Band plays along with The Wheeland Brothers and Sovereign Vine on Saturday, April 28, 2018.
The two-part event opens with Sovereign Vine from 2-5 p.m. as The Siren hosts surf photography and art from area artists during the day.
Shane Stoneman Band and San Diego’s The Wheeland Brothers then go on for the nightcap starting at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets are $12-14 on Ticketfly.com.
