SHIM (formerly of Sick Puppies) Announces Release Date For Self-titled Solo Album

Platinum recording artist, SHIM has announced a release date for his self-titled solo album, SHIM  – September 14 on BFD, distributed worldwide by The Orchard.

After creating a worldwide fan base as founder and former lead vocalist for Sick Puppies, the Australia-born singer, songwriter and producer found himself back at square one, and after a couple failed attempts at collaborating again, decided to bet on himself.

“I set out to make the best music of my career – which I’ve done,“ Shim says. “For better or worse, I put everything I had to give into this album, and for the first time in my life it doesn’t matter what the outcome is, because I couldn’t have bled anymore than I did on this music. “

It’s impossible not to feel Shim’s blood running through all 11 tracks.  “The theme of this album is about someone digging themselves out of a hole,” says Shim.  “It’s the whole journey of doing the work to create the life you want, despite the obstacles.”
