about

With grooves borrowed from classic American rock n' roll and roots music, this record is infused with old-timey banjos and Duane Eddy and John Fogerty style electric guitar lines for a sound that is unique, yet seems instantly familiar.

“With bigger ideas come bigger sounds and SSB has gone big.” - MP Cavalier, DoItIndy Radio Hour

“Every tune serves the moment that they were written for ... The guitar sound is pure ear candy to me, reminiscent of REM, Petty, and Smiths.” – Ben Cannon, Spark Joy Music

“Shiny Shiny Black's Wild Edges EP shines a light on the worry, fear, angst, & joy that is present in all of us.” – Scott Curtis, Michiana People Podcast

“On my way home, that sound is unmistakable.” – Benjamin Gooding, fan

Track Name: Gone
"Gone"

One day I'm gonna hit the road
and I'm not coming back
until I'm ready to.

Said I'm gonna hit the road,
if I never ever come back,
well that's ok too.

The best place I've ever been is on the road.
The best place I've ever been is gone.

Put some pavement under the wheels
the yellow lines, I play the White Stripes
on the stereo

Desert sand and winter snow,
mountains high, valleys low
they're so low.

The best place I've ever been is on the road.
The best place I've ever been is gone.
Track Name: Falling Off the Wagon
"Falling Off the Wagon"

Good night, sleep tight
Started over again
in the morning light

You know there's always trouble, honey
coming round the bend.
If you've fallen off the wagon lately,
get back on again.

If that morning sun don't shine,
and the stars fall from the sky.
Turn your black heart into diamonds,
let the sorrow make you wise.

You know there's always trouble, honey
coming round the bend.
If you've fallen off the wagon lately,
get back on again.
Track Name: Hallelujah
"Hallelujah"

Playing in the straw
underneath the chairs,
people stood around me,
their hands up in the air.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The people spoke in tongues
to the pounding of the drums,
a thousand voices strong
with angels and demons everywhere.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe they were crazy,
maybe I'm crazy too,
there's a fire in my heart,
can't get over you.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Track Name: When You Get That Look
"When You Get That Look"

When you get that look
in your eyes
I want to tell you that
the world is better now.
There's red on the walls,
the doors are broken down.

Just don't look out the window.
Just close your eyes.
I don't want to think about it,
we're always telling lies.

The tears well up
in your eyes
I want to tell you that
the worst is over now
There's red in the streets,
the peace is broken down. Oh no no...

Just don't look out the window.
Just close your eyes.
I don't want to think about it,
we're always telling lies.

When you get that look
in your eyes
I want to tell you that
love is all we have,
love is all we have,
love is all we have.

Keep looking out the window.
Don't close your eyes.
Tell everyone about it,
and don't believe the lies.
Track Name: Home
"Home"

She stood there in the sunset,
staring at a roadmap,
said, "I have no idea where I am.
I got off on the wrong ramp
and I couldn't find an on ramp.
I'm just so tired, I wanna go home."

He stood there in his gray suit,
the same color as his gray mood,
said, "I've given this everything I have!"
He worked late into the evening
cause his boss had hit the ceiling,
said, "I'm just so tired, I wanna go home."

I wanna go home
I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Take me home.
Track Name: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder, what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder, what you are
