She may have been long considered one of Brisbane’s most consistently impressive artists, but in many ways it’s only now that KRISTY APPS is truly finding her place in music. She’s done the solo artist thing, smashed her SG in a rock band – but now joined with her band The Shotgun Shirleys Kristy has really come into her own.
And it’s the sound of confidence that rings through every note and word on the brand new KRISTY APPS & THE SHOTGUN SHIRLEYS EP – out this October through long time collaborators SUGARRUSH Music. The EP is the latest in an impressive catalogue of releases for the artist, the last being her much loved release ‘Pour Me Out’ which reinforced her spot as one of the country’s most genuinely powerful performers that has toured around the country (and the USA) earning plenty of radio and media praise in the process.
For this new release though, Kristy wanted to find something new and having spent some time playing with ‘The Shirleys - Ruth Gardner (guitars), Sallie Campbell (violin, mandolin, harmonium, vox), and Shiv Zimmerman (bass) – she found the creative balance she was looking for.
To make the record, the band headed south and spent the best part of a week tracking the songs live in the studio with acclaimed songwriter and producer Shane Nicholson who she says was “…so laid back but has this innate understanding of recording and producing music.”
The release of the new single and EP will see Kristy and the band hit the road for the first in many tours over the coming year or so. And she will be paying particular tribute to the many fans who contributed to her EP crowd-funding campaign.
