Abram Shook

Abram Shook

 Austin, Texas, USA

New-tropical, bedroom-soul, slow jams from Austin, TX. Abram Shook, formerly of 70's art-rock band The Great Nostalgic, takes tasteful pop grooves and blends in an eclectic mix of influences from psychedelia to Tropicalia.


After heading the successful Bowie-inspired rock band, The Great Nostalgic, Multi-instrumentalist Shook is set to release his debut solo record. The LP hints at Abram's roots in jazz and soul, showcases his appreciation for Brazilian pop, while maintaing some of the energy of his previous band.

Shook has toured Europe as keyboardist for Athens band The Low, Lows, contributed heavily to the early sound of The Laughing as saxophonist/bassist, and currently holds down bass duties in new Austin band Feverbones featuring members of Dana Falconberry.
