The New CD Collections, "PURE" & "Travelin' Texas" are available !
The new "PURE" collection of Shake Russell songs is here! PURE is a 12 song collection released in January 2015. These tracks represent the bare bones and pure versions of these songs in their beginning form. They are available from us on this website. Better yet, come on out to a show and pick one up in person.!
Travelin' Texas Collection
We now have copies of the new "Travelin' Texas" collection of Shake Russell songs in hand! They are available from us on this website. Better yet, come on out to a show and pick one up in person. These are songs that you have heard through the years that have not been collected yet. It's a wonderful collection of 20 songs!
Randy Miller will also be producing my next studio CD. We began work on it last year and put it on the back burner so we could concentrate on finishing the live DVD/CD project. Now that the DVD/CD is finally out, we intend to resume work on the next CD.
Michael Hearne, Monte Montgomery, Shake, Randy Miller
Another project I've been involved with is a CD to benefit HAAM, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, also produced by Randy Miller. It is a CD of collaborations between a wide variety of Austin musicians. Monte Montgomery and Michael Hearne and myself collaborated on "Today's the Day", a song that Michael and I wrote and it features Monty's fabulous guitar work. The HAAM Benefit will be Tuesday, Sept. 24. The day will culminate with ALL ATX – The Concert at ACL Live featuring a once in a lifetime lineup of musicians from the live music capital of the world.
Live At The Centrum: Shake Russell Trio with Michael Hearne - A live CD only, no DVD. Order yours today!
Michael Hearne at last year's Big Barn Dance
Be sure and get tickets through Austin City Limits if you are in the Austin area. It will be a fantastic show, plus it is for a great cause. And remember to watch for the CD and pick up a copy.
It is September and that means it is time for the 11th Annual Michael Hearne's Big Barn Dance in Taos, New Mexico. This year it is September 5, 6, 7. For the first time it will be up at the Taos Ski Valley and tickets are going fast for accommodations and tickets to the BBD. This promises to be the best one yet! We say that every year and every year we are right! Go to Michael Hearne's website for information on tickets and accommodations. Besides all of the great music and merriment involved, Taos is a beautiful place to be in September.
Hope to see you in Taos and at another live show! I am celebrating 40+ plus years of music in Texas and you are the reason why I am still around.
Hope to see you up the road.
