Sporting a mane of curly locks, a hilarious sense of humour and a lilting Irish brogue, Pond multi-instrumentalist Shiny Joe Ryan is a wonderous enigma.

Shiny's Democracy is his second solo effort and it's been a long, seven year wait since the release of his solo debut The Cosmic Microwave Background in 2014.

His musical offerings are as unique as he is - a mix of genres encompassing country, pop and rock, all mangled and mashed into something new, strange and tender.

Joe finally found the time to record this new offering between touring as a crew member for Tame Impala and performing with Pond.

He wrote and recorded this second album at Tunafish Studios with his band The Sky Dolphins in Western Australia and as well as mixing it himself along with his Pond bandmates, Jay Watson and James Ireland, it was also carefully mastered by fellow WA musical alumni, Kevin Parker.

Shiny's Democracy is an album for anyone and everyone and a sign of a musician who wants to try everything once (or twice) with no plans of slowing down.

You'll find glimpses of his contributions to his band Pond on the record but Shiny Joe definitely carves a path all of his own.

Written with a perfect balance of grit, wit and expertly crafted instrumentals, this second album from Shiny Joe Ryan will place him firmly alongside the rest of the Western Australian musical mainstays and definitely marks his triumphant return from his initial solo offering back in 2014.

2021, the year Shiny Joe Ryan brings democracy to the people!
