Album Notes
After the release of five independent albums with various band mates - two under Shawn Nelson, one with Shawn Nelson & The Good Buds and two with Shawn Nelson & The Ramblers, Shawn marks his 6th release with THE DEVILS RIVER - a throw-back country album dipped in some americana sauce.

All of the songs are written by Shawn, except for “Diamonds Don’t Shine In The Dark” and the title track, “The Devils River”. “Diamonds” was written with Shawn’s long time mandolin player and Good Bud, Fletcher Murchinson. “The Devils River” was written with Will Dupuy (South Austin Jug Band) on the way back to Austin from Bandera, Fletcher was asleep in the back seat of the van. Will recorded and released “The Devil’s River” on his band latest release, La Tampiquena.

Some of the finest musicians in Austin helped Shawn breathe life into these songs. Fellow Good Bud drummer and producer, Patrick Herzfeld, engineered and mixed the record at his new studio outside of Austin, Signal Hill, and also played drums and piano on the record. Long-time Austin guitar hero, Wayne Sutton of Sister 7 added his licks and riffs and Will Dupuy of The South Austin Jug Band popped in to add vocal harmonies and upright bass on a few numbers. The bluesy-two-stepper “Tighten Up” and the bluegrass fueled “My Old Time Gal” features fiddler Noah Jeffries of Milkdrive.
