Shiny and the Spoon portray the intimacy of Johnny Cash and June Carter, with head-turning vocals and a vibrant acoustic core, complimented by sprinklings of ukulele, guitar, harmonica, and good old-fashioned boot-stompin’. Shiny and the Spoon offers a sound that blends the heart of American folk music with catchy-pop melody lines and lyrics that portray “a deep current of romantic skepticism that runs just beneath the calm surface” (Ric Hickey, Adventures of a Loose Wreck). It is this quality, unusual to such young songwriters, that has quickly made Shiny and the Spoon one of the region’s most acclaimed folk acts. Their surge of popularity is marked by the creation of a “Shiny and the Spoon” sandwich by local lunch hot spot, Tom + Chee.
Shiny and the Spoon are preforming tonight at The Southgate House Revival along with Brad Schnittger of The Sundresses & Angela Perley and the Howlin' Moons. Tonight only they will be releasing a limited run of the new EP Someday! The EP is a precursor to our upcoming full-length (the release date of which will be announced at the show) album: Box Of Bullets, and features two songs from the album, as well as two songs that will be found nowhere else. The EP was recorded and produced with The All Night Party. The EP will be given out with a suggested donation. Also available will be genuine letter-press printed posters, produced by Steam Whistle Press for the event for only $5!
Come on out for a magical night of music with Shiny and the Spoon!
