Songwriter/keyboardist/singer Shrimp City Slim and crew epitomize the genre known as the "Lowcountry blues", a rollicking blend of groovy shuffles, coastal funk, and swampy ballads that reflects the multi-cultural heritage of their home base, Charleston, SC.
"I Work Nights", Shrimp City Slim's fifth all-original CD released in 1998, documents a fascinating period in the artist's career.
At this point in time, the band was a sextet with two women singers with a huge repertoire of original material.
"I Work Nights" contains twenty (20) new songs including "Charleston Strut", "Hey Mr. DJ", the first version of "Switch Me Over (To Love)" (sung here by Ann Caldwell; later a show-stopper for Wanda Johnson), "The Grass Is Greener", "Stick & Stay","Color Me Indigo", and more.
Shrimp City Slim continues to travel worldwide. Performance dates/venues at his web site.
An important slice of Lowcountry music history...we think you will love this album.
