Airshow is an acoustic rock and bluegrass band, based in Nashville, TN.
Founded by childhood friends Steve Gallagher (guitar, vocals) and Cody Chelius (mandolin, vocals), Airshow also features Bill Baker on bass and John Rodrigue on drums.
Their combination of acoustic and jam-band music debuted in 2017 with the EP “Lightblub.” Their follow-up, “Up in the Clouds,” was released in 2019.
The band has most recently been touring to support its 2020 EP release, “Anubis,” which is available on all digital and streaming outlets.
“When we were considering the title for the new album and the concept for the cover art, the conversation kept coming back to the final track, ‘Riddle of the Sphinx,’ and it’s Egyptian theme. The second track on the record,’Ruby,’ a song about a sweet, black dog, also stood out in our minds. While researching different Sphinx images,we discovered that some people believed the Great Sphinx was originally a statue of the jackal god Anubis, the god of the Necropolis, who closely resembled Ruby. And thus we had the title and concept for our new record.”
Set to release early July 2021 is Airshow’s fourth studio effort, Shimmer.
