Music Madness Atx 'Live Sessions' With Shane Cooley says
Shane Cooley's songs serve up a slice of life with an honest conviction. Inheriting his distinctive voice from his 3rd cousin, the late Hollywood actor and entertainer Sterling Holloway (known particularly for being the cartoon voice of Disney's Winnie the Pooh and many others), Cooley's performances are consistently moving. The 27-year-old has earned his battle scars from years of touring the United States and Europe, independent and self-managed. Originally from rural Virginia, he is currently working out of the music Mecca of Austin, TX, where he is quickly gaining momentum performing solo and with his band, Shane Cooley & The Lucky Kings.

Cooley’s prolific writing is only matched by his persistence as an artist. After graduating from the College of William and Mary in 2010, he has almost constantly been on the road, honing his skills and learning from other artists. His music has been recognized by contests such as the International Acoustic Music Awards (two time runner-up), Mountain Stage NewSong Contest (finalist), and many others. He has showcased unofficially for the USA Songwriting Contest at South By Southwest. His music has been featured on over 300 iHeartRadio websites.

Shane Cooley's new full-length album, Kings Highway,
was mostly recorded in Richmond, VA with producer Bob Rupe (Sparklehorse/Cracker/The Silos). Finishing touches were added in Austin by PJ Herrington (Asleep at the Wheel). 16 months in the making, the album promises to be his best yet.
