-- Shantytown, the Van Zant legacy continues...
Any true fan of Rock & Roll can tell you about the Van Zant family of Jacksonville, Florida (known as the "First Family of Southern Rock"). They have produced three-major bands: "Lynyrd Skynyrd", "38 Special" and the "Johnny Van Zant Band". Now there is a proud new addition from Southern Rock's first family, a great new band called "Shantytown". And the Van Zant legacy continues...
"Shantytown" is widely known across the US for their explosive live performances and lyrical song styling. Wherever the band has played, they've left the audiences with a sense of fulfillment rarely seen or offered by any of today's entertainers. Jacksonville based Southern rock four piece "Shantytown" successfully captures their powerful live sound in the studio to bring you their debut album "Shantytown"
ShantyTown is led by Robbie Morris (Drums) and "Lil Ronnie" Morris (Lead vocal/guitar). Both are nephews of the late Ronnie Van Zant, and Donnie & Johnny Van Zant from "Lynyrd Skynyrd" and "38 Special". Robbie and Ronnie's musical roots are deep, and like their uncles, they are the real deal.
Shantytown 's musical influences are so diverse that the sounds created when they come together are truly unique. As musicians they excel, as writers they push the very boundaries of Southern Rock, with astonishing results.
This remarkable album is a treasure of contemporary southern rock propelled by a blistering vocal performance, Marshal stacks and Les Pauls all driven by a dynamic rhythm section, producing an original contemporary masterpiece titled: "Shantytown".
This stunning collection of original Southern Rock is being released worldwide on the American Independent Label " Garage Door Records".
