Shiny Red Nothing is an arts and music collective based out of Northern Kentucky, originated by former (indie/punk band) The Minni-Thins' singer/songwriter/guitarist Jeremiah Strickland.
Currently, SRN is releasing a free single a week for thirteen weeks; the culmination of which will be the Nothing's sophomore album, "Handmade Shelter." This week marks week eleven. Check it out! Cheers!
Shiny Red Nothing is the umbrella under which you'll find musician, Jeremiah Strickland. Strickland is also an artist, writer, actor, filmmaker, lay philosopher, and eccentric weirdo. He lives and works in Northern Kentucky with his wife, Elizabeth.
"Silk of Red Esteem" was recorded in his living room, utilizing a shitty acoustic guitar and Garageband on his Macbook Pro. The music is an eclectic mix of fucked-up folk, heavy blues, indie rock, and punk that would best be classified as "Blackgrass."
Melissa Bingle provided the lovely back-up vocals.

That is all.
The Minni-Thins burst onto the Independent Music Scene in 2005 with their debut album, “In Black Cause I Asked,” which, thanks in no small part to the strength of the single, “Let Me Be Your Liquor Man,” inspired rave reviews online, in print, and internationally. After recording their sophomore effort, “That Old Kentucky Blackgrass” in the winter of 2007, the Minnis split up, leaving “Blackgrass” unreleased. Now, four years after the band played their final show, the Minnis are returning from the dead just in time for Halloween to release the single, “Chorus of the Zombie Apocalypso,” as well as two new EPs, titled: “The Nonbeing EP” and “The Devil Can’t Dance EP.” The twelve songs that comprise the releases are all culled from the Blackgrass sessions, recorded and produced by (Austin based band) The Quiet Company’s own Matt Parmenter.
All three releases are available for free online at archive.org.
