December 9, 2014
2015 is almost here but good ol’ SHB still has some things on his plate in Dec. 2014!
First off, I’m very excited and proud to announce that I’ve been nominated for “Best Outlaw Male” in The 2nd Annual Ameripolitan Music Awards! My win depends on your vote by January 2nd! The awards show takes place in February 2015 in Austin, TX. Please vote HERE!!
You can also check out their official website and review some of the other categories HERE.
This week I’m headed up to The Hi-Fi, Indianapolis, IN (Dec.11) and The Rock Island Brewing Company, Rock Island, IL (Dec.12). I’ll also be playing The Continental Club, Austin Texas (Dec. 19) Y’all definitely don’t want miss this one! It’s the first club show I’ve played here at home in Austin since last March!
We’ve got a holiday sale going on at the STORE, so stock up on some nice stocking stuffers!
We’ve been working hard on getting my old records, “The Dirty Old One Man Band”(2005) and “Graveyard Shift”(2006) re-mastered and the art reworked so we can release these classic Biram albums on limited edition vinyl LPs in 2015. First time on vinyl for these!!
My record label, Bloodshot Records, is celebrating their 20th anniversary and have released a double album of non-Bloodshot Artists covering existing Bloodshot artists. It’s titled “When No One Was Looking”. The band,Two Gallants, contributed a great cover of my song “Truck Driver” on there. Always fun to hear someone else’s take on my song! Check it out HERE.
As far as full touring goes for 2015…In February, I’m happy to announce that I’ll be headed out west for another great tour! This time I’ll be bringing my Austin, TX buddy, Jesse Dayton, out on the road. He’s been playing and touring a long time. He and his band are super talented and will surely bring some good times and great two steppin’ and boogie tunes to the stage. I really can’t wait for this tour! Jesse is a honky-tonk and rockabilly artist best known for his guitar contributions to albums by country musicians including Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson. He’s also collaborated with Rob Zombie, who commissioned him multiple times to record music for his films.
Shortly after that I’ll be playing SXSW Festival again this year…right here in Austin, TX! Come enjoy but don’t move here! Ha Ha!!
We’ve also been working on booking a UK/Ireland/Central Euro tour for April 2015. I’ll be hitting some big festivals like Roadburn Festival in Holland on this one. Once again, I can’t wait!
We also have another Scandinavian tour in the works for June 2015!
Check back here for updates as we confirm these dates!
Hope to see you guys out on the road somewhere or right here in Austin, TX!
Have a great holiday season! Have fun and be safe out there!
