Shaved Hamster
About Us Shaved Hamster
A gifted singer song writer, a cherry red Gibson ES 335, a local artist, a Spooky kid and here’s Johnny are the elements in the big bang that formed Shaved Hamster late in 2009.

Amy T Baxter, former singer of Alternative/Indie bands Black Janet and Betty at the Station decides to take a “cool down” period from performing while she earns her master’s degree in Physical Therapy. During this cool down period however, her ever expanding musical universe continued to bend and shape within her soul till it could no longer contain itself.

Enter local artist. Stewart Jennings at the time was in a phase of high productivity turning out painting after painting. This luckily set in motion a spark that set ablaze an inferno within Amy to get back to her love of writing music..

Enter a cherry red Gibson ES 335. After expressing her desire to getting back to her true love of writing and performing, Stewart decides to buy Amy a new guitar and asks her to start a band with him. With no experience in playing or writing music, it was more a playful gesture to become involved creatively for support and be her #1 fan. Soon it becomes very apparent that they make an excellent writing team and take it to the next level. In early 2010 Amy and Stewart start a music project they name Shaved Hamster (the name is another story and it’s probably not what you’re thinking).

Enter the Spooky kid. Amy enlists long time friend and musical icon Scott Putesky co-founder and former lead guitarist of Marilyn Manson to help form Shaved Hamster’s sound in the studio.

Enter Here’s Johnny! Musician and recording engineer John Mahoney graciously lends a helping hand to record Shaved Hamster’s first four tracks in his studio to get the hamster wheel in motion.

Amy and Stewart enter studio with over 30 songs and record twelve of them for their debut album “Somewhere Between Fuzzy and Clean”.

Shaved Hamster’s debut album is scheduled to be released in January 2011. You can currently find several single releases from Shaved Hamster on Amazon and other popular music download websites. Amy T Baxter and Stewart Jennings recently formed a band with some of the best musicians available to play out live so keep an eye out for Shaved Hamster!
