Guitarist Shane Theriot’s “Still Motion” covers expansive, soulful musical landscape
GRAMMY-Award winning producer, composer and acclaimed guitarist Shane Theriot’s new album, Still Motion, is a wondrous new collection that only adds to his already eclectic oeuvre. The New Orleans player has squeezed a lot of playing into a relatively short period of time. Since joining the world-famous Neville Brothers at age 24, Theriot has worked with a wide variety of artists in virtually all styles of music including: Dr. John, Boz Scaggs, Rickie Lee Jones, Jewel, Madeleine Peyroux, Beyoncé, Aaron Neville, Idris Muhammad, Chris Squire and Alan White (YES), Allen Toussaint, Ben Folds, Sammy Hagar, Jon Cleary, Larry Carlton, and Harry Connick Jr.
Of course in addition to his funky soulful solo work, Theriot is also the lead guitarist for Daryl Hall & John Oates and the music director and guitarist for Daryl Hall’s series, Live from Daryl’s House. He also hosts the compelling podcast, The Riff Raff, which he and I have discussed before.
Still Motion features 10 original tunes, built around the trio format comprised of some of his favorite players and musical allies: Jim Keltner (drum legend), Johnny Vidacovich (New Orleans icon) and Kirk Covington (Joe Zawinul, Tribal Tech) on drums; James Singleton (Professor Longhair) on upright bass; and Nate Wood (KneeBody) and Chris Maresh (Eric Johnson) on electric bass.
