Shayne P Carter and Band on Tour in NZ August 2016
Shayne is about to release a long-awaited new album of piano based songs called Offsider.
My band still includes two of my longtime Dimmer cohorts - trusted lieutenant Gary Sullivan on drums and guitarist James Duncan who's moved over to bass in our new three piece format. On The Offsider: I like the title cos it seems to suggest being out of step or out of kilter with the times which it probably is. I decided to write the songs on piano - despite having never played the instrument before in my life - because I liked the idea of naivety and discovery and having a new angle on songwriting after so many years doing it.
