MATT MANN & THE SHINE RUNNERS

Southern Blues Rock Kicks Ass

Matt Mann & The Shine Runners is an American garage rock and blues jam band formed by songwriter and Oklahoma native, Matt Mann, in November 2011 after having relocated to Los Angeles. The band, along with producer Marc Jordan, went into the studio during the first few months of 2012 and collaborated on their first album “Modern Day Outlaw”, which was released in mid-2012. The Black Crowes’ Adam MacDougall lent his Hammond B3 organ and upright piano-playing talents to the debut album as well. The band’s second album, “Southern States To The West Coast” was subsequently recorded and released in mid-to-late 2013.

With influences ranging from The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynryd, ZZ Top, Willie Nelson, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Matt Mann & The Shine Runners delivers their brand of raucous and extraordinary blues-rock music to enthusiastic and receptive crowds. Matt’s unique style of singing, blended with their bluesy, boozy, two-guitar-rock, gives the band an authentic jam-band sound and transports listeners back into the early seventies, making their music both gritty and timeless. The band’s early days in Oklahoma provide a definitive influence in their music and is very much evident in the songs featured on “Modern Day Outlaw”.

Although the album was recorded in Los Angeles, the combined music and lyrics give the listener an abundance of rich and vivid imagery of life back home in The Sooner State. “Modern Day Outlaw” is simply one of those rare pieces of jam-band blues-rock that can’t help but to put the listener on the prairie, at the lake, or in that gritty and dusty ice-house with a group of rowdy (but good) friends.
