Album Notes
“…catchy, punchy, and it rocks…” (The Rocket, Portland)
Shipe has an original 200-plus song repertoire, 15 years of touring, radio airplay, and nine recording projects. 27 Shipe tunes have played on 100 independent and commercial radio stations, without the support of a major record label.
"...remarkable vocalist and songsmith... breaks away from the mold." (Performing Songwriter Magazine)
The Shipe body of work has been described as cinematic, both embracing and violating any genre. Although a songster by trade, Shipe is discontent with the generic singer/songwriter sound. To achieve maximum versatile effect, he recruits line-ups from the Indie, Americana, Jazz, Grunge, Jam, Punk, and even Reggae scenes. The synthesis of seasoned songwriting and sonic intrigue pumps on both the brain and the gut.
He has shared the bill with Bob Dylan, Blind Melon, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Cake, Tower of Power, Jerry Joseph, Jimmy Cliff, Derek Trucks, Los Lobos, Better than Ezra, and quite a few others.
Sudden & Merciless Joy stayed on The Oregonian's best-selling local charts for more than a year.
