Nick Shoulders ain’t all bad at Lark Hall, October 27th

ALBANY – Nick Shoulders, a well-known name within progressive country is set to grace the stage at Lark Hall in Albany Halloween weekend as part of the “All Bad Tour.” The Arkansas native initially found his success with punk rock band, The Thunderlizards, along with his harmonica/banjo contributions to Shawn James and the Shapeshifters. Soon after, Shoulders shifted his musical focus towards becoming a solo country artist. His solo career took off when his original track, “Rather Low,” went viral on YouTube. After this release, Shoulders was praised by many for his unique vocal style which worked to blend the country sounds with yodeling and whistling.

Shoulders’ unique sound is ever present on his most recent album, All Bad, which came out last month. The album offers an impressive mix of classic country and punk spirit, all coupled with a raw eccentricity. With a singing style passed down through his family, his songs tend to convey themes like dealing with difficult truths while still inspiring joy. Similar to well-known artists like Hazel Dickens and Jimmy Driftwood, All Bad protests against environmental destruction through the lyrics, but still offers rhythms that are easy to dance to.

Joining Shoulders on his “All Bad Tour” is Maddy Kirgo. With a voice stemming from New Orleans, Kirgo’s music offers a sweet melancholic take on the country music genre. Tickets to the “All Bad Tour” are available now, and you even have the chance to win a pair of tickets below.
