The Shimshaws are brothers Todd McCombs (vocals, piano, organ) and Scott McCombs (vocals, guitars, bass guitar). The Shimshaws are based in Colorado and Washtington DC. Their latest release is Ear To The Wire, a follow-up to their 2004 release entitled Subcutaneous. Both CD’s contain guitar-driven, melodic pop/rock songs that reflect a range of influences including the Beatles, Keith Richards, Pete Townsend, James Taylor, REM, Tom Petty, Replacements, Steve Earle, Nirvana, Uncle Tupelo, Radiohead (the Bends!), Black Crowes, and many more.

The songs on Ear To The Wire were written and produced by the McCombs brothers and were primarily recorded at Scott’s home studio in Highlands Ranch. Drums were recorded at Colorado Sound in 2007. The Shimshaws worked closely with JP Manza at Colorado Sound to mix the songs. JP has worked with artists including Yo Flaco, Wendy Woo, Matisyahu, T.V. On The Radio, Yellowcard and Franz Ferdinand. Tom Capek at Colorado Sound mastered the CD.

In the age of iTunes and short attention spans, The Shimshaws still believe in the “album” format and since they are not beholden to a record label, they wrote and recorded until they were satisfied with the end product. We think you will be too. Give Ear To The Wire a few listens and let the hooky goodness get under your skin.
