Shane Everett and Shane Barnard formed the duo, Shane & Shane in the late 90s. Since then, the acoustic-guitar wielding pair has become a college-circuit favorite. This, their 10th career project Bring Your Nothing, is released May 14. The album is a community effort, featuring friends and fellow musicians, Jason Hoard (Third Day), Tyler Chester (Fiction Family), Josh Moore (Caedmon’s Call) and Shane & Shane’s own drummer, Joey Parrish.
A theme of grace weaves its way through the track listing with poignant lyrics that grew out of Shane & Shane’s weekly songwriting class where they teach students songwriting principles and theology. The title track, based on Isaiah 55, has a Stevie Wonder groove accentuated by colorful horns played by a brass section. Lyrically, the song speaks to what we have to bring to Christ—absolutely nothing.
Musically diverse in styles, this album will have wide appeal for anyone who enjoys contemporary Christian music. For more information on Bring Your Nothing, see www.shaneandshane.com or http://www.youtube.com/shaneandshanemusic.
