Local lad Shinny seems to have cornered the market when it comes to seasonally appropriate releases. Following on from his success with Christmas Number One and Took You for Granted, a release that focused on Valentine's Day, Shinny's back again. This time his new track is a tribute to his mother. Fittingly, it will be available in time for Mother's Day.
The new tune, simply entitled Mother, will be the second single from SHINNy'S RECORDs -The People's Label. Earlier in the week he was keen to give his backing to National Women's Day and he continues his homage in the song.
The former fighter isn't guarded about his sensitive side. In Mother he sings, 'Those little things you do you do. That's what makes me love you. I taste the air you breathe; I never want it to leave...'
Mother can be found on You Tube with an accompanying video that features shots of Shinny's family*. It a good tune with a message of respect and togetherness. So, does Shinny have any songs for other occasions? "I could probably do one done for Father's Day, too" he laughs "Maybe a summer song, but we'll see."
However, Shinny really wants to concentrate on a serious song called You Let Them Walk The Streets that will be released later this year... "The video to that will be shocking", he informs.
Shinny has recently been taken on by Deus Management after they became aware of his online popularity. Deus Management represents fellow ex-boxer Michael Gomez and actors Chelsee Healey and Cairan Griffiths. They are keen to expand The Shinny Show and even promote some branded items of merchandise.
Strangely, for a man in recovery, this week saw the launch of a new ale named after the Salford singer. Shinny's Gold Rush even features one of his catchphrases on the label and beer pump... 'he just makes it up as he goes along'.
