OUT ON JAN 19 2024
Shiny Brian Crayons invite you into their world: dressed from head to toe in Crayolas finest palette, infectiously shout-singing with a child-like enthusiasm. Their music laces fuzzy guitar and bass over driving synth loops. Listen carefully and you may just feel your vibrational aura rise, a feel good smile singing along with their catchy riffs.
Shiny Brain Crayons have been firing earfuls of musical joy in south London since 2023. Producer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Stergin heralds from the Austrian mountains. He’s been signed to major & indie labels, composed music for Olympia 2020, worked for human rights organisations in Amsterdam & Los Angeles and also was part of InHouse records – the world’s first label operating in and out of prisons. He’s also the founder of The Mindful Ukulele Method combining the teachings of mindfulness with the learning of how to play the Ukulele.
Vocalist/bassist/songwriter Marianne Canning emigrated to the city from the calm suburbs of Reading. As well as embracing the multi-instrumentalist life on keyboard, guitar and voice, Marianne is a trained classical violinist. Cutting her teeth touring nationally and internationally in violin, bass and keyboard she has been busy playing as a session musician with multiple acts. Career highlights include supporting Die Toten Hosen and The Subways in Germany with The King Blues to a 50,000-person crowd in 2018 and playing Reading and Leeds Festivals 2011 with A Genuine Freakshow.
They’ve been making music together for the past 5 years morphing into Shiny Brain Crayons to release a new untended energy. SBC love to get their crayons out and create, experiment and connect to their inner child: “when your mind is open and free, songs and ideas come more easily to express yourself – let your imagination run wild.”
