Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown Releases Anthemic New Album, Electrified

 Rock n’ roll is loud, reckless, and all about the moment. Few modern bands know this like Nashville, Tennessee based  Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown. On the band’s exhilarating new album, Electrified, out May 10th on the band’s own Rattle Shake Records, the group raises a glass high to its wildly fishtailing journey. 

“I view our little rock n’ roll band as underdogs every now and then,” says lead vocalist/guitarist Tyler Byant. “You go through years when you’re playing clubs, loading in and out, and then suddenly you’re playing concerts with AC/DC. It’s really amazing.”
The aptly-titled 11-song album crackles with onstage rock n’ roll energy. The band recently gave people a taste of the thrilling album with the leadoff single, “Snake Oil,” a sleazy Sunset Strip strutter with dirty-sweet hooks, soaring lead guitars, and snarling lead vocals. “Trick Up My Sleeve,” Electrified’s second single, out on album release day, is a classic power-ballad, showcasing a more vulnerable side to the band in its underdog moments. Here, Tyler sings: Well Im used to the world throwing punches/Dont mind if you laugh in my face/It wont bother me, Ill get where I should be/Aint lost just a little out of place
Electrified also swaggers into the roots of rock n’ roll with the country-twanging “Movin’,” and the Delta blues-flavored “Mona.” “We love sneaking in a little blues every now and then,” says guitarist and backing vocalist Graham Whitford. Electrified also features cross-genre collaborations with other artists, such as the powerful “Happy Gets Made” featuring veteran blues artist Ruthie Foster, and “One and Lonely,” featuring Grammy-winning duo Larkin Poe.
