Biography

It’s that sensation of suspension—whether tucked within the elusive emotions of love, longing, or fear—that’s the underlying theme throughout all of Gamble’s work, including his latest release, Behind The Blue. Gamble has created a signature sound that’s centered on colorful guitar work, intriguing pedal-steel counter lines, and thought-provoking lyrics. On Behind The Blue, which was crafted during an extensive two-year tour throughout the northeast, Gamble strikes a fine balance between classic songwriting sensibilities (“The Story Of Mary,” “All Or Nothing”), rootsy Americana rock (“Highway 16,” “Cold Elixir”), laid-back grooves (“Already,” “Free Ride”), and stark introspection (“War”).

But there’s more to this burgeoning artist than his formidable singing and songwriting skills. A good portion of Behind The Blue was recorded and produced by Gamble in his Frederick, Maryland home. Says Shane, “Producing this record was as much about the process as it was about the end result.” He brought in famed engineer and Maryland neighbor Jeff Juliano (John Mayer, Lifehouse, O.A.R.) for a majority of the mixing, while also enlisting the help of several renowned sessions musicians. “Working with musicians like drummer Matt Johnson and bassist Gary Grainger was amazing,” Gamble recalls.
