Shaw explains: “After touring behind two Shaw-Blades albums [made with Jack Blades of Night Ranger, the most recent, Influence, came out in 2007], we discussed a second album of covers and actually recorded a few more, but we never officially set a project into motion.
“Styx would soon get back together and hit the road with the Return to Paradise tour. Will Evankovich and I decided to cut Going to California and did it at my home studio in the Hollywood Hills.
“We recently gave it a listen and when Styx manager Charlie Brusco suggested we release it now to help fill the musical void that the lockdown had created, it suddenly had a new purpose.
“We had it mastered here in Nashville and created some artwork and got it placed on all the streaming platforms. Robert Plant’s original vocal is stellar, but I tried to make it my own while honouring its essence. I hope you enjoy it!”
