Shinyribs is the continuation of Kevin Russell’s musical journey which began in Beaumont,TX when, at 14, he found his father’s guitar under his bed, along with a sewing machine, a billy club and a box of comic books. Luckily he chose the guitar. Following his family’s oil boom and bust migratory path he landed in Shreveport,LA where he formed his first band. Picket Line Coyotes were a Husker Du meets Elvis Costello hybrid that lived and died between the “Arklatexabamassippi” borders much like their unfortunate animal namesake. That’s what took him to Austin where The Gourds were born from those Coyote ashes. That storied band of pumpkins came to an end after 18 years of good times and hard travelin’. And from that point on Russell has been riding high on the Shinyribs river of country-soul, swamp-funk and tickle. A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip shaking, belly laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on, kissed on by this world class band featuring Winfield Cheek on Keyboards, Keith Langford on Drums, Jeff Brown on Bass and the Tijuana Train Wreck Horns. Whether on his 6 string Uke or his Electric guitar or singing acapella Russell will entertain you like no one else. The freedom with which he moves coupled with his incredible voice is an experience in and of itself. His original songs laced with magical-realism along with novel interpretations of popular songs old and new (George Jones, TLC, Leadbelly, T-Pain) are the true art that runs throughout. He’s Burl Ives meets Al Green, Hank, Jr. meets Teddy Pendergrass. Wendell Berry meets Chuck Berry. Truly something not to be missed. A unique musical experience and an original expression of our colorful musical heritage.
Gooding has performed in every state in the lower 48, across the UK and Canada. He has written recorded, performed and produced over 2000 songs featured in film, tv shows and DVD’s such as Johnny Cash Walk The Line, CSI, Jurassic World (First Look), Anthony Bourdain, Bloodline, VH1 Movie Awards and over 100 others. He has helped rebrand the music for CNN, CNNi and PBS and A&E.

Gooding tours the country over half the year with his band, “GOODING” in their completely fan-funded tour bus titled "Little Red 2." The inside runs off solar panels that also power the band’s mobile recording studio. The band has been featured on NPR’s All Things considered, CNBC, Wall Street Journal and Billboard Magazine. They have donated shows for our troops at over 16 Army, Marine and Air Force bases and were invited to perform at Walter Reed Hospital and for a private tour of the White House.

In 2012, Gooding founded the 501c3 non-profit “Funding The Future”. Using the power of a live rock performance and his own personal story, “FTF” inspires students with lessons of finance and discipline to help them see their dreams as possibilities, and level the playing field for ALL students. Gooding has spoken to and played for over 120,000 students so far and his band plans (along with their club, theatre and festival shows) to play over 80 high schools in 2018. The program aims to make financial literacy part of the curriculum in every school in the country.

Gooding’s upcoming record “Building The Sun” was recorded at the Sound City complex in Los Angeles, CA and produced Matt Wallace (Prince, Rolling Stones, Maroon 5, REM). Singles include “Troublemaker”, “Bring The World Around” and “Because It Hurts”. The record will be released everywhere in the Fall of 2018.
