Born and bred in Austin Texas, Sheri grew up on the road with her father-country hit maker from the 60’s Ray Frushay. Her own songs have the same simple honesty that makes you want to cry, or laugh, or just get up and dance!
“Sheri is a rockin’ whirlwind of a songwriter & performer, and even as she battles through health issues, this lady has no shortage of pipes, soul, and rebel attitude. Not only is she the daughter of famed country troubadour Ray Frushay, but she cut her musical teeth under the wing(s) of Townes Van Zandt, Calvin Russell, Blaze Foley, Rich Minus & the like. -Jerry Clayworth
“For all you Austin fans & followers of the true old-school outlaw roots-rockin’ scene of yore, you’d do yourself some serious good to stop in at Carousel Lounge TOMORROW – THURSDAY 2/22, for an evening with Sheri Frushay & Keith Kinkle. Sheri is a rockin’ whirlwind of a songwriter & performer, and even as she battles through health issues, this lady has no shortage of pipes, soul, and rebel attitude. Not only is she the daughter of famed country troubadour Ray Frushay, but she cut her musical teeth under the wing(s) of Townes Van Zandt, Calvin Russell, Blaze Foley, Rich Minus & the like.
Keith is a veteran Texas roadhouse roots/bluesman & guitar slinger, who is celebrating his recently self-released “Kaleidoscope Menagerie” CD. It should also be noted, that this show is Sheri’s Birthday celebration, so show her the LOVE! When these two take the stage together, they’re like the smoke to each-others’ fire! DIG, SHARE & EXPERIENCE!” ❤

—A few people were sent RUNNIN OUT ..Bedford was one of them …
Wow… love the deep and subliminal story… reminds me of a Dylan song or a Hunter Thompson book/story… the dark truth to much of the life of many artist during the days of “sex, drugs and rock and roll”- Benford Standley”

“I’d like to share with you my full review of Sheri Frushay’s new song, Runnin Out. I was especially honored to get to put a preview of it out last night on the show.
Visual and Tactile –
Some people are said to be born with the ability to “see” music’s colors and shapes. Then, there are those with the gift of being able to make any listener see and feel the music they play,. A few songwriters can craft a song that takes you on a visual and tactile journey with their words, Then, there are those with voices that have such rich and deep texture that they seem to cut through the skin and plant the music in the heart of the listener. “Runnin Out”, written and performed by Sheri Frushay is a song that shines a big bright spotlight on those rare and elusive qualities that are sought after by most, but found by very few. Sheri’s almost mystical voice sings of a tale of desperation, while her poignant rhythm guitar lays down the groove in an arrangement which was co-produced by Sheri and Matt Hubbard. Matt Hubbard also accompanies Sheri Frushay on multiple instruments on this stunning studio production. Matt’s accompaniments help paint the three dimensional drama that unfolds in the course of three minutes and fifteen seconds. An eerie blues harp, rock solid bass guitar, subtle Hammond organ and some shaken percussion, shaken at just the right time is all the extras the song needed, nothing more and nothing less. The song was mastered by Jerry Tubb. In this day of overproducing and pushing compression to the limit like a contest to see who can take all the dynamics out of music, Jerry Tubb did just the opposite. He left all the dynamics in, and polished this song like a master jeweler would a fine diamond. Chills, hair standing on end and feelings of breathlessness may occur while listening to Sheri Frushay’s new single, “Runnin Out”. Don’t worry though. It’s all good. It’s all real good. One of the best songs I’ve Felt in a long time. – Shawn Howard, Host Songwriters Across Texas Radio FM 107.9”
