Biography

"He doesn't just draw a crowd, Shane Scheib gets feet in the seats" Michael Cliffton, Daddio Records.

"It's like Steve Vai got kicked in the nuts jamming with Eddie Van Halen having inhaled an ounce of the weed Clapton smoked"-Isaac Wriston, Roman Lights

“The first time I learned how to play with one hand was from a hippie guitarist who would cut the crotch out of his leather pants and sew in a different color leather patch. One week’s lesson when I was 13 consisted of going into the guy’s teaching room alone, pressing play on the VCR and watching a video of Stevie Ray Vaughn live. That changed everything for me.”

With influences ranging from Abba to Zappa Shane founded various bands including Native Born Alien and Fall Away Façade. He received training in Jazz guitar at Jeff Berlin’s Player’s School of Music in Clearwater, Florida and studied guitar theory under jazz guitar guru Yuzuru Tanakura. In 2005 Shane left the United States for missionary work and held several odd jobs including being a chauffeur, milking cows, and teaching guitar lessons. While overseas he started a Guitar Club in the Maori village of Waharoa, NZ, performed for troops at Yokota U.S. Air Force Base in Fussa, Japan, and recorded music in Auckland, NZ for a YWAM compilation album.

Upon returning stateside he worked on a salmon fishing tender in the Bering Sea, and the skipper, a retired Nashville song writer encouraged Shane to make the move to music city. Shane took that advice and now resides in Nashville where he recorded the Genrelicious EP, an avant-garde blend of influences fashioned together by a master craftsman of guitar music. Some songs are instrumental, others have vocals, all produced with the intention of highlighting the unique abilities of one of Nashville’s most versatile up and coming guitarists.

Shane currently plays for and writes with several Nashville artists, and headlines the Genrelicious Showcase in various cities featuring artists of all styles and backgrounds.

Lyrics

She Died

Written By: Shane Scheib

From the day that she left me
Till the day that she died
I ain’t had no sorrow
I ain’t even cried

From the day that she left me
Till the day that she died
I ain’t felt no heartache
I ain’t even cried

From the day that she left
Till the day that she died
Ain’t had no regrets
Oh I been satisfied

I do not remember
Just what was her name
But that doesn’t matter
Cause they’re all the same

I do not remember
If that girl was fine
But I guess that’s required
For a girl to be mine

I do not remember
Just how she died
They start with base color
Then add blonde highlights

I hadn’t noticed
That she was gone
Up until one week later
When she died her hair blonde

I hadn’t noticed
She wasn’t around
Up until one week later
When she died her hair brown

I didn’t want her
To ever come back
Up until one week later
When she died her hair black

Could not remember
Cruel words that she said
Up until one week later
When she died her hair red

Fee Free

Written By: Shane Scheib

Well I found it hard used a credit card
To pay a fee online
Was an extra charge to use a card
To pay this fee of mine

So I paid a fee just to pay a fee
And that seemed a little bit strange to me
And if I ever start a company
Well I know just what my slogan’ll be
We ain’t fee free but the fees are free

We ain’t fee free but the fees are free (to pay)

So if I put out my shingle one day
Now you know just what the sign’ll say
And all the folks are gonna come my way
Cause no one wants to double pay a fee

And if you’ve gotta pay a fee to me
Well it’ll be fee free I guarantee
Nine out of ten consumers agree
That’s just the way that it oughtta be
We ain’t fee free but the fees are free

Fees are free the fees are free
We ain’t fee free but the fees are free
We ain’t fee free but the fees are free to pay
