Not many artists are doing what Nick Shoulders is doing today. With energy, attitude, and a yodel as good as any out there, Shoulders is keeping that classic country and western sound alive. Theatricality and vigor sum up this Arkansan’s style as a singer and songwriter, drawing on deep ties to southern music and life experiences gathered in his Ozark upbringing.
A true embodiment of integrity and DIY ethics, Shoulders’ new album, Home on the Rage, was recorded entirely in Arkansas and captured onto tape. In this OurVinyl session, Nick Shoulders and vibrant fiddler Milly Raccoon stand on the front porch of an old farm home and perform the upbeat number, “After Hours.” To hear something that harks from way back but with a modern twinge about it, check out the OurVinyl session below.
