SHANE GAMBLE BAND

Building on the success of his recent single “Beautiful Work,” which cracked the Top 40 on the Billboard charts, Maryland-based singer/songwriter Shane Gamble is set to release a batch of new songs on his own label, Rt. 50 Music, this coming May. The self-titled EP features the singles “Love Is a Road” and “Tangled in You,” which were co-written with 1999 “Country Songwriter of the Year” Phil Vassar. “I went to Phil’s place with nothing more than an idea of a song title in mind,” says Shane. “Over the course of a couple hours, we finished the song. I think we captured something special that day.”

The basic tracks for that song, “Love Is a Road,” were recorded at Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore by famed artist/engineer J Robbins. To round out the mixes, Shane brought in session pros Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, Wallflowers), and Sean Hurley (John Mayer, Vertical Horizon, Lady Antebullum), while drummers Nir Z, Rich Redmond, and Michael Dawson carry the grooves.

Sonically speaking, these new tracks sound bigger than anything Gamble has done in the past. On “Lost in a Mystery,” the guitars grind and the lyrics take an outsider view on how the modern country business operates. “I wanted to be real and candid” says Shane. “Nashville is a great town, but it has its way of doing things. It’s great but having a family and living almost 1,000 miles away in Maryland means I can’t walk the traditional path, I’ve got to build this thing on the road show by show.

Gamble spent much of 2017 on the road, road-testing new material as he was opening for top touring artists like the Eli Young Band, Lee Brice, Lo Cash, Grainger Smith, Phil Vassar, and David Nail at premier venues like the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC, the Fillmore in Baltimore, and the Bluebird in Nashville. “These songs are a journey through where I’ve been in the past two years—the ups and the downs. They were written with the live show in mind, I want to bring something new and fresh to the stage, and speak these stories really clearly.”

In 2013, Shane enjoyed the success of his debut album and the Top 10 single “Turn My Way,” a pop/country tune that’s equal parts punchy and poignant. Thanks to the groundbreaking SiriusXM country music channel The Highway, Shane was able to crash the party as an independent artist, garnering new fans across the globe and making a splash in the music industry crowd.

Shane’s sophomore effort, American Heart, was released in 2014 and features twelve tracks that showcase his ability to seamlessly blend country, rock, pop, and Americana. Gamble co-wrote songs for American Heart with heavy-hitting Nashville players Derric Ruttan, Andrew Dorf, and Zac Molloy. In the studio, Gamble worked closely with Rick Beato, who not only produced “Turn My Way” but is also credited with hits by NEEDTOBREATHE, Shinedown, Charlie Mars, and Parmalee.

Gamble’s new self-titled EP is slated for release this May. Visit www.shanegamble.com or contact for more information.

with such artists as Prince, The Ohio Players, Earth, Wind & Fire, Rick James,
Whitney Houston, Gloria Gaynor and many many more… Superflydisco
is just what you need to bring that party to the next level!

Not only is he gifted with a precious voice which has yet to encounter a note it can’t hit, he also has a knack for reading his audience, and choosing from his limitless repertoire the songs that’ll keep everyone dancing and dancing. Keeping the dance-fest going, in fact, appears to be his top priority, and Johnny Artis takes big chances to see that his audience is entertained.
