Product Description


Shook is the second album by North Texas artists Chris Welch and The Cicada Killers.

Welch’s influences include not only Otis Redding but also The Replacements’ “Alex Chilton,” fronting an indie-rock rave-up sound with the lived-in voice of a guy who went to one-too-many parties.

Dallas-based blog Ghost of Blind Lemon offers this take: “Welch straddles the line between country and soul in a similar vein to how Mr. Orbison did it.”

Along with Welch (vocals, guitars), The Cicada Killers includes Patrick Newkirk (Lead Guitar), Clint Sawyer (Drums), Kelly Evans (Vocals, Saxophone), Holly Manning (Vocals, Strings, Keys), and Dave Huff (Bass). Additional influences on the band include the Stax and Hitsville label rosters, along with Kris Kristofferson, Lou Reed, and Afghan Whigs.
