Shane Smith and The Saints
From the outset, they set their sails for deeper seas, not knowing exactly where they would land. On Hail Mary
(Geronimo West, 2019) producer Mark Neeham
(The Killers, Imagine Dragons
) sought to capture these Austinites’ high-energy, folksy, roots rockin’ country live act—with outstanding four-part harmonies—unadulterated in the studio.
“If I’m going to be singing something every night,” said Shane Smith
, the band’s main songwriter, “I like to sing with an honest conviction.”
