One Way Ride
Twenty-eight year old singer/songwriter, David Shehane, picked up a guitar at the age of 14 and never looked back. Originally from Dallas, TX, he has been in several bands throughout the years, mainly hard rock, but his true passion has always been his acoustic guitar. David was discovered by his producer, in the sleepy mountian town of Manitou Springs Colorado, where was playing an "open mike" at the Ancient Mariner, a notorious local pub. Coercing David to leave Colorado and return to Dallas to record his first solo album was no easy task. He was passionate about his day gig at the Cave of the Winds, leading people into the abyss and bringing them back safely... or so he says. When not on the clock, he was able to spend his time exploring uncharted and little used areas of the cave, even taking his guitar into the chambers for some acoustic enjoyment. Finally convinced to trade the darkness of the caverns for the darkness of the studio, David returned to Dallas and started production of his first solo album. Utilizing some of Dallas' top band and session players (including a guest vocal by the wonderful Beth Wood on 'Goodnight Amarillo'), "One Way Ride," is an eclectic mix of rock, pop, blues, jazz and even a touch of country. David's wit, passion and love for music spill over the songs on One Way Ride, a perfect showcase for his voice and guitar. He currently lives and works in north Austin. When he's not playing around, he can be found at his Innerspace Caverns day gig, leading people into the abyss and bringing them back safely...or so he says.
