3 Bricks Shy is comprised of songwriters Rick Lally, Shay Ryburn and Melinda Highfill. Their music stretches across genres including acoustic rock, country, pop, folk, blues and jazz. The band officially came to existence in November of 2012. Songwriters Rick Lally and Shay Ryburn had been performing as Rick and Shay. Melinda Highfill had joined them on various songs in the studio and on many different occasions during performances. Melinda joined the team full-time in the summer of 2012 for the release party of Ricks CD Down In Jamaica and Shays CD For A Reason. Rick and Shay felt that it was time to change their name so they wouldn't be excluding Melinda. So they cam up with '3 Bricks Shy'. Currently 3 Bricks Shy is a trio, but who is to say what the future could bring! Their 10 song debut CD is will be in distribution on or before September 2013 at all major music sites such as iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby. They have already had some local radio airplay and are seeking more opportunities for their music to be heard. Maybe you can help!
