AT THE DOOR
"Old Towns is the moniker of singer-songwriter, Robbie Shirriff. Blending the raw energy and driving force of punk, with the simplistic beauty of folk, Shirriff’s love songs will have you stomping along, and his drinking songs will make your heart smile. In addition to playing this year’s Pouzza Fest in Montreal, he has been featured in Dying Scene, Bucketlist Reviews, and Punknews who place him to the tradition of such acts as Chuck Ragan, Joey Cape, and Andrew Jackson Jihad. Raised in Saskatoon, SK, Shirriff has three releases to date, including 2014’s Leaving Songs and 2015’s The Northey Sessions. He has a forthcoming split EP with Vancouver musician, Bryan Michael and plans for a full-length release in the future. At just 23 years old, his talent as a singer is magnetic, and perfectly accompanied by the warm, robust chords of his acoustic guitar, his harmonica, and his boots on the floor. If folk is said to be '3 chords and the truth', then Old Towns is that with a nosebleed and a three-dollar pint." -Cole Mash; Author/Reviewer
"This strapping guitar player cut his teeth in Calgary Alberta, bringing his finger lickin' pickin' to the poetic punk rock outfit THE RUMBLE, while at the same time releasing his own sad bastard ballads with a band of buds called THE HOWL. His powerful voice and big swing/big miss guitar work makes for some fun rock and roll, keeping the music tough and the lyrics tender.”
