A mane of curly locks, a hilarious sense of humour, a lilting Irish brogue; Shiny Joe Ryan is a bit of an enigma. His musical offerings are as unique as he is – a mix of genres encompassing country, pop and rock, all mangled and mashed into something new, strange and tender.
Sometime during and between touring as crew for Tame Impala and performing with his band Pond, Joe wrote and recorded his second album Shiny’s Democracy at Tunafish Studios in Western Australia.
Effortlessly mixed by Ryan and his Pond bandmates, Jay Watson and James Ireland, and perfectly mastered by Kevin Parker, Shiny’s Democracy flows from heartfelt Americana lyrics to heart-thumping guitar solos.
