Formed in 2009, the ToneShifters energetic live show melds
their individual musical tastes into a danceable freestyle fusion of blues,
rock, swing, rockabilly and honky tonk, otherwise known as
“Swinginrockabluesabilly.” They released
the single “Lena” on the Good Sponge label “Good Sponge Volume 1” compilation
in March 2012 followed by a full length debut “Picture on the ‘Fridge” in April
2012, which will be re-released in a new format this spring. Most recently
their single “Go Speed” was released on the Good Sponge label “Volume II”
compilation, which is now available for download and will be available as a
hard copy shortly.
