From both his own name and the name of his album as well as the album’s cover, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that Shane Torres’ Established 1981 might be an hour of honest comedy tapped directly from Shane’s life that may snake its way through dark subject matter.
For this debut album, Shane indeed goes through stories and observations of a life that has been run through the ringer more than a few times. However, Shane has an unmistakable air of optimism in his comedic perspective, which left us with a smile on our face and the notion that maybe, things/life/etc. might be OK (eventually).
Get a taste of that here as he discusses a victorious way to quit your job.
