*Shane's Beach Boys inspired summer single, "Stella Ray" is on Spotify, Bandcamp, Apple Music, Amazon Music and more!
"With a naïve charm that can only be achieved by an accomplished arranger (think Brian Wilson), ‘Stella Ray’ is a chance for Shane Cooley to show off his breezy side. Injected with the sounds of 60s pop, it’s a serious summer jam." - Duncan Haskell, editor of Songwriting Magazine (U.K.)
"Shane Cooley pivots toward jovial summertime leanings and stares at the sun on "Stella Ray": a pure fun, off-kilter, folk-pop miniature. Like a kid with ABC building blocks, the Virginia/Austin-based artist toys and tinkers with a mixed bag of instruments from buoyant mandolin to pan-puttered percussion and seesaw synths. Cooley's smooth register - childlike and dreamy - strolls unrushed. Diverting from the melancholic and rural pastoral folk on Kings Highway (2015), the Beach Boys-inspired track aligns itself more with the experimental Americana backdrop on April's Forest". - Alejandra Ramirez, The Austin Chronicle
'Coyote' (single) - released April 8, 2022
'Forest' (album) - released April 22 (Earth Day)
