"Review of the Chicken Coop Chronicles"

With their fusion of college friendly eccentricity and traditional simplicity, the Blue Shield Band writes Roots Rock with a dash of personality. Whether you call it alt-rock or jukebox country, The Chicken Coop Chronicles embodies the trashy aesthetic of ol' fashioned rock n' roll. While every song is worth of praise, I must say that "Peppermint Store" is my favorite track off the album. This little ditty freewheels via rollicking cadance and gritty disposition. We here at Shut Eye Records dig the music - Ryan Hoffer, A&R Shut Eye Records

"“Done & Gone”"

“Done & Gone” (track 1 off C.C.C.) is “very folky – I picture myself driving down the highway with the wind blowing through my hair, I definitely hear the Mellencamp influence” - Mindy Novotny 95.1 WIIL RADIO

"Crystal Lake, 11:50 p.m."

Duke O'Brien's near the Crystal Lake Metra station was hopping.

The place was packed with people in their early and mid-20s enjoying a night out with friends and songs from the Blue Shield Band.

As the band continued with original material and songs by the Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and John Mellencamp, the place filled with a happy vibe.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Influenced by John Mellencamp, Wilco, Rolling Stones and Steve Earle; Blue shield band began performing in the late summer of 2000. Brothers Joe and Chris Fisher handle guitar and bass duties along with drummer Kevin Hinterlong as they delve deep into folk, country, rock & Americana traditions. Dan Carty (piano) provides a lush landscape of melody and noise over the solid rhythm foundation. Last year’s independently released “Chicken Coop Chronicles” captures the sound and feel of the modern Midwest. Simple stories of simple pleasures trailed by lonely lamentations fill the first album released under the bands’ own label; Chicken Coop Records.
