My journey to the BLUES started late in life. After a lifetime of playing in hard rock bands, honing my song writing skills I found myself lacking in motivation and took a break from music... but a couple of years is too long to be away from the stage! I got back in the game and met a slide-guitar playing bluesman, and he introduced me to the blues and I was instantly hooked by the raw passion of blues and the stories it tells. So in 2013 Shinbone STar blues was born.
Shinbone STar have spent the last 4 years writing and refining our songs, and our debut album is set for release 26th of March 2017. There is great anticipation from our supporters for this release as they have ridden every bump and curve of the rollercoaster of the recording process, and you will not be disappointed!
The album is completed, in the can, paid in full and ready to hit the airways and internet! The album launch event is booked on Melbourne's famous blues cruise boat, The Lady Cutler.
BUT: Video clips are the life blood of musical success!
We intend to capture Shinbone STar in full flight in a video of the launch show for a DVD to support the album, as well as filming three studio track film clips. That's where we need your help! Unlike many musicians, we have covered all the (significant) costs of producing the album out of our own pockets, now we are just looking for some modest support to assist to put the funding in place for a quality live and studio DVD.
Since the Shinbone STar launch gig has been booked for Sunday the 26th of March, we need your support now to make this a reality.
Films clips are make or break for a musical release, so your support will be crucial to our success and gratefully acknowledged. We have put together a variety of packages that will allow us to achieve our goal and will reward you for your gracious support! Please support this Shinbone STar blues project!
