About

Rusty Shipp is a nautical Rock'n'Roll band that got its start in Nashville, TN, in 2013. Characterized by its dark, underwater sound, haunting vocals and unconventional, heavy riffs, the music is a perfect fusion of grunge and surf rock, though it is most memorable for the Beatlesque chord progressions and vocal melodies at the core of every song. At the forefront is the singer-songwriter and guitarist, Russ T. Shipp (literally his birth name), followed by Jake Adams on bass, and AJ Newton on drums. Russ T. has his own signature sound, weaving his raspy voice in and out of falsetto and vibrato; at times sounding like a “higher-pitched Kurt Cobain”, as one music critic put it, and other times like a ghost. He was once asked in an interview why Rusty Shipp was worth listening to in an industry already so crowded with bands. He responded, “I really think what we have are the best songs on the market, because I'm convinced that I outwork and outthink the average songwriter. I've put over 10,000 hours into songwriting, and now I have a vast arsenal of interesting music fragments to choose from when assembling songs. So you'll never, ever hear any filler on a Rusty Shipp recording. Every part of every song is meticulously plotted out with the best bits of music and ideas I've accumulated for more than a decade.”
