Cincinnati-based ‘Female Power Duo’  The Spear Shakers (guitarist/vocalist Kelly Richey; percussionist Sherri McGee) has received high media praise since forming in late 2018.


Kelly Richey, dubbed “Queen of the Road Warriors” by WHAS-TV Channel 11 in Louisville, has twenty-five years of touring and sixteen albums on her lengthy resume, including a stint as lead guitarist on Stealin Horses, a popular Kentucky-based rock group once signed to Arista Records. Drummer Sherri McGee is an in-demand session musician who previously was a member of successful rock group Velvet Elvis on Enigma Records.

Richey was recently profiled on Blues Highway, whose Host, Garry Goldsmith, wrote, “Kelly Richey may be the hardest-working recording artist in the business. She has a natural Blues voice that she pairs with a Rock ‘n’ Roll soul.  With those two components firmly rooted in Americana, she has developed a unique style.  She has a sensibility about her approach to music, and prides herself in being independent in producing her work.  All of this together is a pleasurable listening experience that one can not get enough of.

What The Press Is Saying… Including Us !

“2019 is shaping up to be a big year for The Spear Shakers…guitarist Kelly Richey and drummer Sherri McGee are one hell of a spirited rock duo, bringing some much-needed revelry and recklessness to blues rock” – ROCKWIRED

“‘Something’s Going On’ is a blues-rock smoker from The Spear Shakers, featuring the incredible guitar licks of Kelly Richey and perfect drums by Sherri McGee. The perfect start to this ‘back to work’ day.” LA MUSIC CRITIC

Leaving It All Behind’ is a marvelous hard rock/blues-inspired piece of music…the video only captures a fraction of the power and is a mere example of the talent of these consummate performers.”INDIE PULSE MUSIC
