Shadow Horse at Blue Bar
Monday, June 5th, Shadow Horse performed at Blue Bar, and Nashville Offbeat is so glad to have been there! The self-proclaimed 'Mythic Rock' trio took the stage at 10pm, and the first thing to be noted was how tight they were as a band. Hitting every note and nuance as one, they had clearly put their time and practice in. It definitely paid off! Lane Dudley's voice cut across the bar, clear and strong. The seats in front of the stage filled up and the whole room took notice. If you like guitar solos, a tight rhythm section and living outside of the Nashville sound, this may be your next favorite band! They are currently performing around Nashville to promote their debut album titled "The Visitor," (released June 2nd, 2017.)

I love how stripped down this song is. In a world full of over-production and being as loud as you can, “Sidewalk” is an easy-breezy breath of fresh air.
“What’d You Think” was performed, recorded, and shot live on Delmarva Life TV in Maryland earlier this year. I found their performance to be full of passion, emotion, and life.
For instance, the band laments the trials and tribulations of dating a vegan: …
You’re in the sky, grazing the moon with your hands, rearranging stars, and smiling wistfully. This is where my mind takes me when I hear “Are You The Girl” by Kira Hooks, just released on April 17th, 2018.
With a little bit of sass, blues, and rock n’ roll, Lauren Anderson is bringing us a song reminiscent of early Grace Potter. Released March 30th, “The Game” is a head-banger that will pump you up and empower your day!
Released on April 17th, I find “Body Language,” to be timeless, sexy and beautifully produced, and think that you will too.
Capturing the essence of drama, the pain of heartbreak, and the freedom of letting go, “Strangers” is a beautifully written song about the romantic tragedy of losing a part of your identity in someone else.
He’s waiting for a call from someone in an emptiness that extends beyond his physical being.
One of my favorite songs on the album, “Just Wanna Meet You”, puts into words the longing we all feel to find someone to live our lives with. The idea that there’s a person out there meant just for you is one that brings comfort to all the hopeless romantics of the world.
The video features the band playing in Somer’s garage/rehearsal space, cut with kaleidoscope-like outdoor and driving scenes, giving an overall feeling of psychedelic displacement and trippiness (you may want to break out the sticky-icky for this one, gang).
