Shane Cooley’s nuanced lyrics dance at the forefront of his eccentric spin on Americana/Psychedelic/Folk music. “He is one hit away from radio stardom,” wrote Billboard music critic Jeff Miller. Cooley has been writing, recording and performing his own music for nearly two decades. Hailing from rural Virginia, he has received accolades from Billboard, The Austin Chronicle, Americana Highways, The International Acoustic Music Awards, and many more. Along his travels, he has shared the stage with Grammy-nominated artists Wood & Wire, as well as national acts including Wild Child, Shakey Graves, and more.
Shane's songs have found their way to the airwaves on television shows such as NBC’s “The Mysteries of Laura,” and IFC’s “The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman.” Shane recently appeared on the TV show "Songwriters Across Texas," and is currently being filmed for Songwriters, a documentary film directed by Ben Foster and Mark Dennis of the award-winning film Time Trap.
During the pandemic, Shane leaked his acoustic anthology, '50 Songs', and performed weekly livestream concerts on his Facebook page. He is currently working on several upcoming releases, including a solo album and a pop/electronic-influenced project.
'He's one hit away from radio stardom...with a hungry confidence that may prove his hip-shaking ways will soon be making their way to bigger stages.' - Jeff Miller, Billboard Magazine
