The Shindellas - the emerging Nashville trio blending soul, R&B and pop into what they call New American Soul - present their anticipated new album, Shindo.
Produced by Louis York - the Grammy-winning duo of Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony (Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Jazmine Sullivan) - the Shindellas' Shindo is a modern take on the beloved girl group genre that taps into R&B and soul, bringing forth their New American Soul sound.
The album features nine new tracks including their irresistible single, “Last Night Was Good For My Soul,” which was released earlier this spring and is currently Top 20 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart. Of the song, Music Row praises, “This Nashville female trio harkens back to the glory days of the ‘girl group’ era. Over an addictive funk/disco groove, they harmonize and emote marvelously on this sunny thumper,” while, You Know I Got Soul declares, “‘Last Night Was Good For My Soul’ is that feel good music we’ve been craving. It has an undeniable groove that will have you nodding your head from the first listen,” and Rated R&B proclaims, “In true Shindella fashion, the three vocalists soar over the disco-inspired production with their silky smooth harmonies.”
Known for their energetic live shows, the Shindellas recently performed a tribute to Evelyn “Champagne” King at the 8th Annual Black Music Honors followed by selected dates across North America.
The Shindellas - Tamara Chauniece, Stacy Johnson and Kasi Jones - made history as the first R&B band to perform at the CMT Awards in 2021. In addition to widespread critical acclaim, the trio has tributed Missy Elliott at the Café Mocha Radio Show 2022 Salute THEM Awards ‘My HBCU Joy’ Presented by Toyota Motor North America and AARP, performed at the 2022 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting, Disney’s Dreamers Academy, ESSENCE Festival of Culture, TEDxNashville Women and the 2021 CMA Country Christmas.
Already receiving widespread critical attention, the Nashville Scene asserts, “The trio is a true vocal powerhouse, and they eschew the idea of a lead singer in favor of trading verses and singing in glorious three-part harmony,” while NPR Music praises, “Girl group vocal pop has evolved across many generations, without always getting its due as a legitimate musical tradition…As a sophisticated girl group rising out of the Nashville music-making community, the Shindellas are positioned to defy all these perceptions and more.”
