Bazz and the Shiretones: The Story
How It All Began
For the first time ever, Bazz has created a solo album that reflects his personal life and thoughts while growing up on the West Coast of Scotland.
He is a distinctive singer song writer, who has been covertly influential in the Ayrshire music scene for nearly 40 years. Yet his music retains a timeless appeal.
The ShireTones are not a band; rather, they are an ever changing musical collective, brought together by Bazz to express his thoughts and life experiences through song.
He seeks to collaborate with other musicians to achieve the correct mix of creative energies for each song he records. This means there is a forever changing line-up of inspired talent in the Nicolsound studio located in Central Scotland.
Bazz has played in various bands from glam rock to punk to pop. However, privately, he has always written folk style country music because he felt that was befitting his baritone voice and it was a genre that best suited his desire to express his inner feelings.
Currently, Bazz and the ShireTones are back in the Nicolsound studio working on a second album. This will be a more stripped down, bare bones affair that they can take on the road.
Bazz and the ShireTones have a clear vision, to bring those who enjoy their music together to form a collective. He feels they should have an input rather than be passive observers and listeners. So join the ever growing circle of like minded lovers of this brand of folk country. Tune in, take part and chill out.
