Growing up in Athens County, Ohio, Sxip Shirey listened to old-time and Appalachian gospel music with his grandmother on Sundays, and dreamed of becoming a folk musician. Then one day he stuck paper clips on his guitar-strings and they bonged like gamelan bells. That was the beginning of Sxip's journey into his own unique music, evoked on a variety of traditional and re-imagined instruments, such as Mutant Harmonicas, the Industrial Flute, and the Obnoxiophone. He has appeared as a solo artist in NYC at Joe's Pub, the Knitting Factory, Washington Square Church, HERE Theaters, and numerous underground parties, as well as at the Odeon in San Francisco.
