Nick Shoulders
“Okay, Crawdad.”

A cry out against the withering void of listless Americana, ‘Okay, Crawdad’, is the fledgling full length album from Nick and company. A two-step laden dose of indignation, loss and profound elation, the album is inspired as much by the chaos and decadence of south Louisiana as it is the rural sounds of yesteryear from which it sprang. Despite a pandemic inspired relocation to his home in the Natural State, New Orleans and it’s community helped meld the forces at play on the album; pitting an adherence to tradition and refusal to conform against each other with grand results. Embracing the mania of the podunk zeitgeist while seeking to enfranchise the meek, Nick Shoulders is here to stay.

Engineered and mixed by Ross Farbe in May 2019, mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk at Stereophonic Recording, album art and all songs written by Nick Shoulders (except: Ding Dong Daddy (public domain) and Surf De Mardi Gras (traditional fiddle tune arranged for guitar by Cass).
