Meagan Tubb said, “we pay homage to these souls of a bygone era with a séance of classic rock, blues, soul, Americana, and funk written from the perspective of inanimate objects of nature and creatures apart from ourselves.”
In the past 13 years the band has managed to win a battle of the bands competition, open for Willie Nelson (twice), get 2 guitar sponsorships from both Dean and Luna Guitars and their song, “Let Me Believe” won an Independent Music Award for Best Song in the Blues category.
Their Feb 2011 release “Cast Your Shadow” produced by Stephen Doster has received rave reviews and regular airplay within Austin, Colorado, Arizona, and beyond. Since their new release, the band has toured the Louisiana, Switzerland, Mississippi, Colorado, Utah, Montana, Idaho, and all parts of Texas.
Their song “An Argument with the Moon” was chosen for the soundtrack of the independent film “Distances” which will premier at the 2012 SXSW film festival. The band just released their newest album “Signs and Wonders” in 2021 which has been getting regular rotation on KUT’s “Lone Star State of Mind”. With bluesy-rock vocals, dual lead guitars, slide guitars, 3 part harmonies, and a drum and bass dynamic duo rumored to be one of the most sought-after in Austin, Meagan Tubb & Shady People knock the wind out of you as you just realized you were still breathing.
