Music: Shiny and the Spoon

By C.A. MacConnell · January 20th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends
When “Simple Song” hits, it strikes with a scorching, heartfelt, catchy melody. The echoing “Canary in a Coal Mine” takes a sweet trip back in time. Listen close, and you’ll become that bird singing from the depths of a deep cavern.

For Shiny and the Spoon, creating a whimsical, old-timey sound involves using subtlety and simplicity as a crafty tool.

Tom Waits meets Ella Fitzgerald with a ukulele in the mix. Americana/Folk/Pop with a ’20s spin. And this duo’s clever style recently earned them a Cincinnati Entertainment Awards nomination in the New Artist of the Year category.

They play a CD release show at the Rohs Street Cafe with Wild Carrot, Mark Utley, Mike Oberst and more. Get show details and read a full interview with the band here.
