Porch Lion - Poetry

Porch Lion, is available for purchase online at Blurb.

Poetry & drawings by Shane Cooley

Released 2018

Sneak Peak:

This kind of meditation is potentially dangerous. It keeps me migrating, from porch to porch, waiting for the day leaf to turn. Toxic is the feeling that runs through my ventricles; the kind that makes tentacles of my cramped hands. Decisions, decisions.

Halloween Show!

If you missed the scary Halloween show on October 28th, you can catch it on Facebook. 

Dressed in vampire attire wit props and a few surprises, Shane performed some of his songs and many Halloween favorites.

Don't miss out on the fun - opening scene, Shane is upside down!

KUTX 98.9 FM

KUTX 98.9 FM with host John Aielli

When legendary KUTX host John Aielli praises someone’s music, everyone knows they need to tune in to see what the king of Eklektikos is talking about. Aielli has previously been hooked on Virginia native Shane Cooley, where he mentions, “I’ve worked in radio since 1963, and over the years I have learned how to recognize talent. There was something in his sound that made me want to listen.”

Billboard Article

On the 2017 SXSW Performance

Singer-songwriter Shane Cooley's Americana-influenced songs are right out of the Head and the Heart's playbook, which means -- like that Pacific Northwest band -- he's one hit away from radio stardom. On the back porch of the Rainey Street venue Icenhauers, he proved he may in fact have that song in him, playing through tunes from his most recent release, King's Highway, with a hungry confidence that may prove his hip-shaking ways will soon be making their way to bigger stages.

50 Songs Review

New review of 50 Songs by Connor Charlton on his blog, The Absolution Train. 

'There is so much on this album, and it is a journey that I would recommend for a long car ride or any sustained length of time when you can hand the reins of your attention over to Shane, because it is a joy and adventure to be taken on a tour through a world with this level of sincerity and care.'
