Listen to Gashouse Annie Music

Take a little time to sample some of Shirley's songs from her CD "He's A Rambler". This album is full of amazing performances from veteran, local musicians. Nationally-known singer-songwriter, Irene Kelley also shows up a couple of places to lend some backup vocals. Gashouse Annie has gone through many, many personnel changes over the years, but the one constant has always been Shirley. She has paid her dues over the years and has played everywhere from little hole-in-the-wall bars to large venues opening for artists like Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, Brooks and Dunn and many more. Shirley wrote, or co-wrote all of the tracks on the album and performs on them as well. The album was engineered and produced by TJ Wilkins & Robin Leachman Baluh in Gamut Productions studio in Latrobe, and later in Complex One Studios in Indiana, PA. It took 20 years from first session to CDs in hand. But, we think it was worth it and we hope you will, too.
