King Charles the Martyr and Tom Shaner


King Charles the Martyr and Tom Shaner – Trisha Ivy, Barefoot & Bankside

Inspired by the temperament of Mr. Charles Edward Malcolm Berry, King Charles the Martyr aims to reconstruct the Mississippi whiskey sounds of a forgotten generation. Corrupted by the wandering radio waves and phonographic debris of their previous lives, the dizzy lads of King Charles the Martyr pump out a rock and roll mash hardly recognizable to modern ears. The up-tempo melodies spilling from the fingers and feet of King Charles demand dangerous dancing and drunk dreaming. King Charles ain’t peddling gold or diamonds – unconscious gyrations and illicit speculations are the currency this band trades. So, grab a warm bourbon and a pretty lady and come break a sweat with King Charles the Martyr.

“There are few singer-songwriters that are able to create something that successfully marries the rich tradition brought to the genre by luminaries like Dylan and Cohen in the sixties with a vitality and vibrancy that is germane to current audiences. However, I believe that Tom Shaner does just that.” – Netfeur Magazine

After being received with rave reviews for the 2011 EP release Get Real or Get Gone (Mother West), Tom Shaner serves up his new full length Ghost Songs, Waltzes and Rock & Roll, delivering us further into the Shaner song catalog and exploring a breadth of dynamic songwriting and adventurous production.

Including an amped up version of the Tom Waits song, “Cold Water”, the record drifts from songs exploring dreamy tales of a town having a “Silent Parade” to current stories of the “Unstoppable Hipster” and her routine. With its many moods ranging from light to dark, city to country, we’re told about hard concrete truths, the light and dangers of love, and the ghostly paces of regrets. You’ll discover shimmery pop moments that sparkle with promise as well as folk ballads and waltzes of redemption, to the spirit of rock and roll. All the while fed by American roots with a modern and at times surreal awareness, and a lyrical and melodic power. It features a stellar lineup of musicians and friends helping out including Emmy Bean, Danielle Howle Tom Clark, Claude Coleman,jr of Ween and more.
