Spencer Pheil Band released its new album “Thunder Smile”, which features 11 instrumental tracks, including 9 original works from Spencer Pheil, current guitarist for Stable Shakers, and former guitarist for The Hello Strangers.
Peter Jones at WTJU had the following to say about the album:
"A smile always comes to my face when a great instrumental album arrives at WTJU. The new Spencer Pheil Band album, "Thunder Smile", does just that and then some. These musicians blend jazz, country, folk, roots and a whole lot more with their own wonderful spin."

Stable Shakers has announced that in 2018 they will release TWO full length albums - one pure instrumental album featuring Spencer Pheil on guitar, Tommy Hoy on Bass, Dave Hadley on Pedal Steel, and Jim Aguzzi on drums. The other will feature vocals from Brechyn Chace of The Hello Strangers, who has also joined the band on tour.
Both albums feature original songs written by songwriter and guitarist Spencer Pheil, and will feature several guest musicians from keyboardists, to backing vocalists, and potentially new and exciting instrumentation that you'll hear for the first time in Stable Shakers!
More details, including how to get the new albums when they release are coming soon!
Brechyn Chace, one half of the Austin-influenced, rural-Pennsylvanian, indie sister-folk band The Hello Strangers has joined the Stable Shakers as the featured vocalist. She adds another layer of unbelievable talent, energy, and a remarkable versatility - segueing from country ballad, to swinging jazz, to sultry blues all with an undeniable folky flair.
