"A great player. The secret is out!" - Paul Barrere, Little Feat

"(Hwy 90) is a CD that I'm real proud to have been a part of - a great record" - Victor Wooten

"He hops from quasi-bop to shuddering drop-D crunch to bogus Baroque to slippery country licks, to pina colada acoustic with the seamlessness of spandex!" - Guitar Player Magazine

"A master of accessible melodies that always take an unexpected turn. A player in the big picture category; Shane commands interest from his intro all the way to the fade-out." - John Stix, Guitar for the Practicing Musician magazine

"Harmonic underpinnings run deep in Theriot's hands- even a simple blues becomes a canvas for colorful extensions and unique voicings" - Guitar Player Magazine (Dec. 2000)

A solid album of good progressive jazz-blues with fusion, and some New Orleans style funk in the mix. Shane is a terrific guitarist who doesn't need to rely on meandering mind numbing guitar solos to get his point across. He is a classy, subtle, stylish and polished guitarist with a great sense of thematic development. Some of the great musicians on this album include Victor Wooten, Art Neville, Johnny Neel, Tom Reynolds, Randy Hoexter, Adam Nitti, Kim Stone, Paul Chapman, J.D. Blair, David Northrup, "Mean" Willie Green, and Jim Roberts. Some of these musicians have played with bands of the calibre of the Neville Brothers, The Meters, Govt. Mule, The Allman Bros, Spyro Gyra, and the Rippingtons. " Highway 90" is a class album and HR by A.O.O.F.C. Buy Shane's "Dirty Power" or his fusion influenced "The Grease Factor" album, and support great music [All tracks @ 160 Kbps: File size = 67.1 Mb]

Guitarist/composer Shane Theriot (pronounced Terry-o) hails from the New Orleans area and has been playing guitar since age 11. A top honors GIT grad that was recommended for a teaching position by Scott Henderson at age 20, Shane briefly taught at the Atlanta Institute of Music before making a move to Nashville, where he lived and worked for 8 years before moving back to New Orleans. Theriot’s versatility in both the studio and stage have led to work with many artists in virtually all styles of music. At age 25, he joined the world-renowned Neville Brothers, touring and performing internationally as a member for 8 years, all while continuing to work and record with other artists.Some of the many artists that Shane has recorded and/or performed with include The Neville Brothers, LeAnn Rimes, Willie Nelson, Jewel, Boz Scaggs, John Waite, Idris Mohammed, Leni Stern, Dr. John, Sam Moore, Nick Nolte, Shannon McNally, Aaron Neville, The SYN (with Chris Squire and Alan White from YES), Little Feat, Forest Whitaker, Harry Shearer and Madeleine Peyroux. All of his acclaimed solo records (Hwy 90, The Grease Factor and the most recent Dirty Power) feature burning guitar lines behind the hottest rhythm sections in New Orleans while showcasing his great compositional abilities. (Dweezil Zappa recently chose the composition ‘Shrimp Boots’ from The Grease Factor the winner hands down of the Broadjam Solo Contest out of nearly 500 contestants.) Shane has also authored several instructional books (New Orleans Funk Guitar Styles – Alfred Publishing) and columns for many publications including Guitar Player Magazine. As an emerging composer for TV and Film, his credits include MTV, Discovery Channel, A&E, CMT, VH1 and ESPN.
