SHOTGUN MISTRESS

Shotgun Mistress

Australia


Released on July 16, 2021

Debut album


I've been absolutely spellbound by this album since its release, back in July. A sleazy, modern, fast rock 'n roll album - admirably written, recorded, and produced! Totally delicious! Shotgun Mistress's self-titled debut is an explosive, pure contemporary indie hard rock opus & 2021 Rock Album of the year!
