CHRIS SHIFLETT is best known as the lead guitarist for the rock band Foo Fighters since June 1999.
He’s also contributed to projects including “No Use for a Name” and “Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.”
The Californian will release “West Coast Town” a new solo album on 14th April via SideOneDummy Records.
Chris has been praised for his solo country work with his rousing vocals and impressive guitar work… an intoxicating froth of jookie-joint honky tonk and energised rockabilly with trusty Americana tang…
Joining Chris Shiflett (on electric guitar) in the studio of Grammy award–winning record producer Dave Cobb (also on acoustic guitar and percussion) were an A-List collection of studio musicians, including Robby Turner (Waylon Jennings, Chris Stapleton) on pedal steel, Chris Powell (Brent Cobb, Jamey Johnson) on drums and percussion, Adam Gardner (Southern Family) on bass and Michael Webb (Southern Family) on keyboards.
“West Coast Town” is Chris’ third solo album: an autobiographical, ten-track release.
Chris said, “Getting out of town and working in Nashville with Cobb was the best thing I could have done and was one of my favourite recording experiences of my life.”
“I spent a few months woodshedding my songs and got them as far as I could take them but Dave took them even further, and his crew of musicians were a joy to work with. I can’t wait to take these tunes out on the road and play them live.”
