16: Shane Renfro of RF Shannon
1 day ago
Shane Renfro grew up in Grapevine, Texas. It’s a religious town of about 1,400 people who refer to it as the piney woods. He considered himself a late bloomer in his middle school days. He found himself not growing as quickly as his brother and friends, making him less interested in sports. Needing a new outlet and an escape from small-town religion, he picked up a guitar. He was in a hardcore Christian band in high school. When he was nineteen, he moved to Nashville. After becoming homesick, he moved to Austin to be closer to home and his friends. After spending most of his twenties farming and learning trades like landscaping, he felt compelled to pick up a guitar again and RF Shannon was formed. Their second full-length album - Trickster Blues - will be out on Cosmic Dreamer Music on May 4th. Eight tracks and 28 minutes long, the album is the perfect escape from day-to-day distractions. It’s earthy and romantic. It’s a little ephemeral and most definitely dreamy. It’s groovy but accessible. On this episode, Shane shared how RF Shannon got started, the songwriting and recording process, Austin, LA, Trickster Blues, social media, heritage, psycho magic, and more.
