You can attach many handles to Shurman's music...country rock, cowpunk, rock-n-roll, alt-country, Americana, but none of them really nails the bands sound.
The hard-touring Los Angeles quartet played more than 600 shows in 2004-2007, headlining clubs and opening for such diverse acts as Blues Traveler, Ziggy Marley, Lucinda Williams, Los Lobos, Cross Canadian Ragweed, the Jayhawks, Ted Nugent, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, Bob Schneider, the Drive-By Truckers, Los Lonely Boys and Sammy Hagar. Obviously, they've forged a sound that refuses to be pigeonholed. Aaron Beavers, shurmans lead singer, guitarist and songwriter, notes, "We just go out and say, This is what we do."
The band self-released it's third CD, Waiting for the Sunset, in 2008 to rave reviews in the US, UK and in Europe. Shurman just returned from their first 50-date UK/European Tour and are touring the US through September. The band has steadily developed a dedicated following through their sweat-drenched live performances, memorable lyrics, and heartfelt delivery-Here's to Rock-N-Roll!!
