Formed in Butte, Montana September of 2010, "Shellshock Lullaby" is the artistic vision of singer/songwriter Russ Nelson. In March 2011, Shellshock Lullaby released a debut EP, "Finding Our Way" which got Russ on shows and festivals like Rock Fest 2011, The Original Festival 2013 & 2014, Evel Knievel Days 2012 & 2014 (opened for Black Flag and Tim Montana and The Shrednecks) and the IAFF MG Rally 2012, where he opened for .38 Special. In September of 2011, Russ traveled to Lehi, Utah to collaborate with producer, Tyler Monks, and Scot Alexander (the bassist of Dishwalla). The sessions produced 4 new songs and a remixed single, "Backwards," from the previous EP. In 2012, he wrote a self-titled EP which he released in early 2013. Since this record was released, it has shown much promise for SSL and Nelson's career. Songs like “Crimson Sky” and “Backwards” are on regular rotation on sites like: Rokkus Radio, Pulse, Untapped, Suckfree, Emerge and more. Russ has also signed a publishing deal which will lead to even more exposure for these songs. SSL has completed recording a brand new EP entitled, "Shades of Grey" which was mixed and mastered by Stephen Hawkes (Hearts&Hands, Jonny Craig, Closure in Moscow, Tides of Man) at Interlace Audio and the music is grabbing the attention of fans and industry alike. The EP features the single, ‘All I Need,’ which is now available for FREE DOWNLOAD. Tracks from the Shades of Grey EP have received airplay on stations like Underground Pulse Radio, 850KOA, NBTMusicRadio, TRS24/7 Radio, Pandora, and more. Keep your eyes peeled because there is definitely much more to come from this Montana gem.
