Shane Cooley's new album, 'Kings Highway,'
hits all the right notes
By Mike Holtzclaw, The Daily Press
"..an absolute triumph.'
"Deliver" by Shane Cooley. Shane Cooley & the Lucky Kings performing "Deliver" at Shane's album release party Spider House Ballroom in Austin, TX on 2/27/15. "Deliver" is on Shane Cooley's new album, 'Kings Highway'.
Sometimes the destination is only the beginning of the journey. Shane Cooley's new album, 'Kings Highway,' marks the 27 year old singer/songwriter's arrival to musical self-actualization, and promises great things on the horizon.
His first full-length release in over two years, and his seventh official release since he began touring in 2008, 'Kings Highway' is a complete soundscape produced and engineered by Bob Rupe (Sparklehorse/Cracker/The Silos) at his studio in Richmond, VA. Cooley and Rupe played most of the instruments themselves, with help from Johnny Hott (drums), Bob Wlos (pedal steel), Hayley Rupe (background vocals), and Trevor Nealon (keys). Finishing touches were added by Austin's PJ Herrington (Asleep at the Wheel), who also produced the second to last song on the album.
Shane Cooley began writing, recording and performing his original music at age 13 in a rural part of Virginia known as the Northern Neck. He always knew he wanted to pursue a career as a singer/songwriter, and after graduating with an English degree from the The College of William and Mary in 2010, Shane took to the road, booking his own tours throughout the U.S. and a European tour in 2012.

THE LUCKY KINGS
Shane started up a band in Austin called "The Lucky Kings". He still plays solo but loves to rock out with his band. Shane says, "There's nothing like the excitement of playing onstage with a great band. The feeling that these dedicated musicians are playing my music is energizing."
