M S Borders

M Shane Borders has been creating rock-ish music for over 23 years. Beginning with Dayton OH artrockers Nude Canoe, Borders basically learned on the job. Honing skills as a guitarist as a company member of the Organic Groove Continuum Borders decided to make the leap to a professional music town and landed in Nashville TN with 3 other Ohio refugees and formed the groove rock act Rubido. It was during this tenure that Borders' skills as a singer and guitarist began to catch up with his ability to conjure distinctive, slightly left of center lyrical rock tunes. Following his departure from Nashville Borders entered a long period of songwriting, residing in St Louis with his wife Chirsty and performing occasional solo shows. After the arrival of their first son, Kaston, the Borderses closed a circuit by returning to Dayton OH in order for Mrs. Borders to pursue her doctorate at University of Cincinnati. During this period Shane reconnected with old friend and former Nude Canoe band mate John Haws and mutual friend and veteran SW Ohio rocker Greg Reynolds. The three convened several jam sessions in Reynolds' basement which inspired the notion to record an album and yielded several songs, one of which, "Fire Dress" is included on the new CD _The Monster Strikes Again_. Borders and family, now expanded to 5 members, currently reside in Bloomington IL.
