River Shook is a queer non-binary artist most known for fronting country rock band Sarah Shook & the Disarmers. Taken off the road and facing an indefinite postponement of the next Disarmers release due to the pandemic, River dove headfirst into making an album almost completely on their own; writing, composing, performing, producing, and engineering their debut album Cruel Liars (Kill Rock Stars 2022) a riff-centric wading in the indie rock shallows. While the album brims with pop and new wave brushstrokes Mightmare is a different animal live: darker and sleeker, more psych rock. Mightmare is River Shook on guitar and vocals, Blake Tallent on guitar and synths, Ash Lopez on bass, Ethan B. Standard on drums.
