AUSTIN, TX. (Top40 Charts/ Ross Shifflett Official Website) - Somis Sound presents the Tuesday, January 5, 2010, digital release of Ross Shifflett a.k.a. "Shiffy the Kid's" Chasing Bullets, the singer/songwriter's follow-up project to his highly downloaded self-titled album. Chasing Bullets is available for $9.99 on iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, and other digital music stores. Shifflett's first new single, 'What Would You Say,' is a soulful acoustic guitar-laden track. The album also features such radio gems such as 'Alabama Dance' and 'Dancin' Like A Devil.' The 11-song collection of classics bridge modern Rock and classic Blues.
The buzz began the day 'Shiffy the Kid' arrived in California and caught the ears of producer and Somis Sound CEO Erik 'E-Rok' Richards, who quickly captured the first batch of songs. Shiffy's debut received over 300,000 hits on SomisSound.com in its first month. Soon after, club owners and industry executives took notice. Ross took over the Ventura, California music scene in a flash.
Richards says, 'Not only does Ross write and sing his songs, he does things with a guitar that would make the most seasoned musician stop and want to play along. The passion and energy with which he plays flows directly from his soul to his fans.'
Best known for his fresh new blend of Southern Rock and his authentic Texas sound, Shifflett's new tracks "Story of You and I" and "20 lb Hammer" are already fan favorites on MySpace.
His debut album, Ross Shifflett: Shiffy the Kid, was released in 2005 by Somis Sound and Attack Music in Canada. The project was distributed by Universal Music, and quickly garnered attention from fans across the country that welcomed the young star's compelling sound. Due to the album's overwhelming success, especially on college radio, Shifflett went on tour in the Southwestern United States. He most recently headlined the Easyriders Magazine conventions in Portland, Oregon, and San Diego, California.
The 20-year old musical renegade was born in Graham, Texas, and has been playing guitar since the tender age of 14.
