5 Albums I'll Never Stop Spinning - Danny
March 10, 2017
There are plenty of exciting happenings brewing here at Shambles headquarters. We’ll get to those soon. Today I want to share five albums from throughout my life that have made a major impact on my love of music. Perhaps you’ll find a new favorite album. I tried to pick some that go beyond the obvious (I love the Beatles and I assume you do too). We would love to hear from you about some of your favorites too, so reach out on Facebook if you’d like! In no particular order, here are five albums that really “do it” for me.

Hey everybody! After a short break for the holidays, we made a new home for ourselves in the Rubber Room recording studio in Chapel Hill. We instantly felt the history of the space, a studio which has seen many of our favorite artists. North Carolina favorites from Carolina Chocolate Drops to Mipso and Mandolin Orange have all recorded in the same room. Jerry Brown of the Rubber Room ran the sessions alongside the Wolfman himself, Noah Adams of New Orleans’ Dirty Bourbon River Show. Their combined experience and a fresh batch of Shambles songs made for a very exciting mix.
The Shambles Return to New York
December 10, 2016
As winter starts to roll in, we have made the logical decision to trudge up into the great northern tundra. That’s right, we are returning yet again to New York City for the biggest one yet. Join us at "Rockwood Music Hall" on the Lower East Side (while tickets last) on Saturday, December 17th at 7:45 PM. We love nothing more than seeing familiar Carolina faces alongside New York natives. And once the show ends, the after-party begins. We will be schmoozing in the bar at Rockwood where fans can enjoy $2 off drinks. Don’t miss this chance to see some world premiers of our newest tunes. Be sure to snag your tickets here soon, as they're nearly sold out!
A Letter from the Rooster's Nest
November 11, 2016
Rarely do I take time to stop and reflect, to turn inward and evaluate what makes me myself. We’re busy, all of us are. So busy that we wear our workload like skin and our happiness like the embarrassing sweater that grandma knit. It’s easier that way, only because it’s damn hard to be happy. Today, two things happened that made me turn inward. Not just for a moment, but for hours.
