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.
Somewhere between touring with Tame Impala as a trusted crew member and writing and recording with the members of prolific psych-trippers band, Pond, Joe Ryan wrote and recorded his second album Shiny’s Democracy at Tunafish Studios in Western Australia, mixed by Ryan, Jay Watson, and James Ireland and mastered by Kevin Parker.
Shiny’s Democracy is an album for anyone and everyone and a sign of a true musician who wants to try everything once (or twice) with no plans of slowing down. Written with a perfect balance of grit, wit, and expertly crafted instrumentals, this second album from Ryan will place Shiny Joe alongside Western Australian mainstays and mark his return from acclaimed 2014 album “The Cosmic Microwave Background”.
Fresh off a successful set at West Australian legendary festival, Waverock, Shiny Joe Ryan is poised to bring his sky dolphins to Out of the Woods 2023. An experience all it’s own – don’t miss your chance to catch Shiny Joe Ryan & The Sky Dolphins, live & in-person!
