ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Michael Shipp has a nice one out called Crow Loudly (Roosterboy Music) . Actually, it is billed as “Shipp,” kinda like Van Halen. You know, just a last name. I met Michael several years ago when he was playing in a band with his life long friend Billy Bob Thornton, and I have waited a long time for this record. Shipp, the band, consists of Mike on guitar and vocals, Jai Lambert on bass and special guests are peppered throughout the alum, including Billy Bob on drums and vocals, Dusty Hill (ZZ Top) on bass, Pat Travers on guitar, the late Stephen Bruton on guitar, Les Dudek on guitar, Rickey Medlocke (Lynyrd Skynyrd) on guitar, Teddy “Zig Zag” Andreadis (Guns n’ Roses) on keys, Brad Davis on acoustic and more. Lots of great songs, many written by Shipp, and including adapted covers like ZZ Top’s “Sure Got Cold After the Rain Fell,” The Allman Brothers’ “Its Not My Cross to Bear,” and Bob Dylan’s “Positively 4th Street.” This is a great CD. Outstanding playing and great to crank up in the car when you hit the open road. This Shipp boldly goes where no band has gone before. Fascinating.

Crow Loudly, Indeed!
CROW LOUDLY, INDEED!
New CD Takes Shipp in New Directions

DALLAS, TEXAS – May 1, 2012 – The thick cloud of cigar smoke hanging in the air at a Dallas nightspot can’t hide the grin on Michael Shipp’s face as he talks about his band, re-christened simply as SHIPP, their new CD, CROW LOUDLY, and plans for a summer tour that kicks off May 26 with a performance at the annual Riverfest in Little Rock, Arkansas. Shipp took time out from a recent visit to the Metroplex to seal an endorsement deal with Flaxwood Guitars, and to talk – excitedly – about things to come.

How would he best describe CROW LOUDLY?
“Arkansas thunder meets Texas lightning,” Shipp muses. One listen to the new material validates his claim.

For CROW LOUDLY, Shipp teamed up with his longtime friend, actor/musician Billy Bob Thornton, to co-produce what can only be described as a treasure chest of tone. Recorded at Thornton’s Beverly Hills studio, “The Cave”, CROW LOUDLY oozes cool factor from Shipp’s unparalleled guitar slinging chops and trademark raspy vocals. Shipp wrote five of the new songs and co-wrote another two with Thornton, including “Bring It On”, about a certain superstar actress Thornton first encountered on a hotel elevator and with whom he would soon end up being spread across every tabloid in the world. Any guesses as to who she might be?

The CD kicks off with the catchy “Something Bout You Baby”, a hard-driving song with the stinging guitar work for which Shipp has become widely known. “Kinky”, another Shipp-penned tune, marks Michael’s first effort at playing every instrument on a song, including drums, bass, guitar, and vocals. The haunting “Voodoo in Tallulah”, inspired by blues legend Howlin’ Wolf, is a remake of a fan-favorite that originally appeared on Shipp’s 2003 release “Adventures of Roosterboy”. This time around, his friend Pat Travers joined Shipp for some awesome slide and harmony guitar work that gives the updated version a booster shot of voodoo vibe. CROW LOUDLY also marks the first album release of Shipp’s beloved anthem “Razorback Boogie”.

Not content with an already impressive collection of original material, Shipp also pays homage to some of the artists that influenced him as a teen growing up in Arkansas. He pays tribute to ZZ Top with a smooth, soulful cover of “Sure Got Cold After the Rain Fell”. J.J. Cale’s “Crazy Mama”, featuring the late Stephen Bruton, gets a revved-up treatment. Shipp’s smoky vocal style also compliments Bob Dylan’s “Positively 4th Street” in a reworked Southern rock style, complete with dual lead guitar licks between Shipp and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Rickey Medlocke. Other friends that dropped by The Cave to make their contributions to CROW LOUDLY include Slash, Les Dudek, and ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill.

Does the release of CROW LOUDLY and a revamped stage show signal a departure of sorts from this rocking power trio’s sound?
“Not at all. We’re just venturing into a slightly new direction that dives deeper into my roots in Southern rock, and it gives us a better chance to showcase Jai’s and Kenny’s talents,” Shipp says, referring to bassist Jai Lambert and drummer Kenny Hall.

That Shipp’s style has been compared to that of ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons is no accident. In the early eighties, Shipp, with Thornton on drums, fronted the band Tres Hombres, which was handpicked by ZZ Top’s production company to become that band’s first ever tribute act. Tres Hombres toured throughout the South and even recorded an album of original material, GUNSLINGER, prior to Thornton embarking on a film career. As a final bonus, the remastered track “You That Makes Me Crazy” from that album is included on CROW LOUDLY. Recorded in 1981 at Ardent Studios in Memphis, it features Thornton on lead vocals and clearly demonstrates the powerful influence of Southern rock on both of these Arkansans, as well as Shipp’s early blues influences.

Songs from CROW LOUDLY will be released digitally on iTunes, CDBaby.com, Amazon and most major internet music download sites. Release of the CD will follow in June.

It’s easy to see why Shipp is looking forward to taking the new show out on the road this summer. Catch this phenomenal band live and you’ll wonder how three guys can make so much sound.
