Homegrown in Austin, TX, musician Chris McDowell is a wonder on the keys. Under his Solar Shield moniker he creates exuberant compositions that elegantly walk a tightrope between modern funk and electronic beat music. Solar Shield kicked off the Austin Boogie Crew Records discography with a bang in 2014 with his "Reesis" 45 - so much so that the label had to press it three times to meet demand. Now Austin Boogie is ecstatic to present his much anticipated self-titled LP. The high-quality nine track release features songs created between 2011 and 2013. Settling into the modern funk cannon of 2018 with ease, the Solar Shield LP illustrates just how ahead of the curve McDowell's sound really is. Unique and timeless, this one is a must own!
