Shotgun Lover: Oh No, Yeah Yeah
Nashville’s Shotgun Lover recently got a pretty amazing endorsement: Paste Magazine’s Steve LaBate loves the band so much he’s decided to manage them! We’ve got a killer track from the band, some biographical details, and upcoming tour dates for you live aficionados.
Music is for the people, Shotgun Lover is for the people. If art is a take on one’s perception or reaction to existence, than that is what Shotgun Lover shoots for. The band steams straight ahead for the listener with it’s take on youth in America and Rock and Roll . But the listener can only go as far as the writer is willing to stick to his guns. This is what Shotgun Lover has tried to be about since day one. Genuine American Rock and Roll meant to be enjoyed, listened to, danced to, drank to, and felt.
After playing together for a year and a half in another local band, all of the members decided it was time for something else in the Spring of 2009. With countless gigs, practices, and stories behind them the guys hit the garage and started pounding out the tunes that now define who they are and the music they make. With influences that range from Led Zeppelin to Black Sabbath to Wilco and My Morning Jacket, Andrew Nelson (Vocals, Guitars), Blount Floyd (BGV, Guitars), Nathan Roland (Bass), and Chris Johnston (Percussion) are set to release their first EP “Au Revoir” on April 27, 2010.
