One Gun Shy / Press

“”After the Rain” is the first release from Seattle band “One Gun Shy”. Their sound is inspired by hard rock heavyweights such as Shinedown, Godsmack, Alter Bridge, Daughtry, and many more. It was engineered by Nate Yaccino (Soundgarden) and Dylan Fant in Robert Lang Studios (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie, and Alice in Chains) and One Shot Studios. One Gun Shy come from diverse musical backgrounds, and through their experiences and tastes create unique blend of rock that will satisfy almost any music lovers palate. One Gun Shy will be spending the 2013 year playing shows to promote After the Rain, and hope to expand their geographic and demographic listening base. You can catch them in a city near you on tour this summer! Look for great things to come in 2013!”

“One Gun Shy After the Rain Listen to One Gun Shy If you've got an itch for some straight-up 80s-style hard rock, One Gun Shy may be just the thing to scratch your itch! After The Rain, the debut album from this Seattle-based foursome impresses on a number of technical levels. They deliver a great all-around rock album despite having only been together for a couple years. The amount of polish they show in both their production and their work as a group is excellent. One Gun Shy's vocalist has a deep voice which immediately grabs the listener, low and intense but always melodic. He displays a good range as well, moving up and down while never getting out of the tenor range. Bassist Steven Gough provides solid bass licks. On their best tracks, One Gun Shy builds sparse postrock-influenced soundscapes accompanied by some surprisingly trippy drumming from Chris Womble, such as on Turn A Blind Eye As with the best hard rock acts, there's real musicianship behind it!”

“One Gun Shy, having reviewed one of the tracks that would be released on their new LP, After The Rain. In that review, I spoke a lot about OGS's lead singer vocal style being a great fit to the Seattle music scene. Now, the band, One Gun Shy, have put together a body of work that my previous review cannot do justice for. After The Rain is the band’s debut album, but don’t let the fact that the band is relatively new to the Seattle music scene fool you. These guys have a sound, reminiscent of some of Seattle’s long-time players of the scene, even though the band is only about 2 years old. Produced by Producer/Engineer Dylan Fant and One Shot Studios, as well as Producer/Engineer Nate Yaccino and Robert Lang Studios, After The Rain is anything but amateur work. With influences from some of music’s biggest names, and with the kind of drive, focus and talent that it takes to get anywhere in this industry, it’s not hard to imagine that this band has some great potential.”

“One Gun Shy have a hit album on their hands, with AFTER THE RAIN. The release features the title track, "After The Rain", which runs over four minutes long, and is brilliantly laced together melodically and lyrically. I enjoyed this track from the get-go. I also find this to be my favorite of the thirteen track album. The band, which just began in 2011, sounds to me like a mixture of Breaking Benjamin, Adam Gontier, Godsmack, Shinedown, and Metallica. So, to put it mildly, it sounds like modern rock, lol. The band has a Hard Rock Café Release show set for April 27th, for AFTER THE RAIN this year, in 2013. The band is yet again, another fine rock product from Seattle, Washington. Let's just hope the longevity of this band remains the same as Seattle's predecessor's and we can enjoy many years of great rock, and true talent!! With other smash songs on this record like "I'll Take The Pain", "Answer To Choose", and "Hypnotized", you cannot go wrong with this at all!!”

“I have to admit, I am just a sucker for a good hard rock song and One Gun Shy’s “I'll Still Know”, seems to satisfy my craving. I gave “I'll Still Know” several listens, mainly, because the song is just that good. Also, because I wanted to give each part of the song a fair analysis. OGS's vocalist are reminiscent to the likes of several of the Seattle music scene’s greatest male vocalists. When I tried to put my finger on who he reminded me of, I couldn’t come up with a specific name. There is no mimicking of other singers, he’s just built for this genre of music. The singer has professional control over his vocals, never letting them get away from the rest of the band’s playing. Cohesive, with a clear understanding of what it means to stay within the correct pitch range. Just the right amount of power, never over doing it, or drowning out anyone else...”

"These guys are attempting to climb a very tall ladder with some broken rungs. The music that they love to make has not been popular in these parts for a very long time, but that doesn't seem to bother them one bit. They are creating something that moves them with hopes that it will move you as well. They will sneak as many ripping guitar solos into a song as they possibly can, sacrificing "radio friendly" for the chance to bring the rock just a little longer. They're doing it because they love it and that is where the true soul of music lies…whether you like it or not is irrelevant."

Dylan Fant - One Shot Studios

““One Gun Shy” is up to big things. The band, which was highlighted in an earlier article, has started recording their debut album at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle. Thirteen songs will end up on the finished album which will be for sale on iTunes, at their live shows and on the “One Gun Shy” website. A completion date for the album has not been decided quite yet, but keep your ears and eyes open."”

“I was quite surprised to learn this was the first public performance of One Gun Shy. This seemed to be a well oiled group of seasoned pros. This unit has really done their wood shed homework fine tuning some very well crafted arrangements. Music is heavy hitting as well as melodic. Tunes are radio friendly heavier influenced rock with slight resemblances of Daughtry or Saliva. This can certainly be credited to OGS's songwriting and the vocalist's baritone crooning with the ability to also cover high range belting aggression. I am definitely sure One Gun Shy is about to make their mark on the history of music that has forged the Seattle scene.”

“One Gun Shy, is definitely primed to make a run in this crazy industry we call music!!! Their music demanded my attention from the very first verse in "Turned a Blind Eye"!!! Their music and recording is top notch, and the vocals are extremely catchy!!! I will be playing their songs on my radio show from here on out! Definitely a must listen!!!”

“OGS, “loves crunchy, gritty hard rock.” That love is what drives the types of songs he writes and performs with his fellow band members Chris Womble, Steve Gough and Michael David. These four men make comprise the cleverly named band, “One Gun Shy.” The term is a guitar reference- it means that one guitar is missing from the ensemble. In the early stages of the band formation, the guys wanted another guitar player. They kept placing ads on Craigslist, but to no avail. So they were, as it seemed “one gun shy” and the name stuck. As of recently, they have been continuously practicing their music in anticipation for their scheduled recording session at Robert Lang Studios in early May. Robert Lang Studios is a Seattle-based studio that has produced records with Nirvana, the Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie, Alice in Chains and many other well-known bands and musicians. The work of the studio can be reflected in their awards.”
