why book the shades?
Equipped primarily with their voices and acoustic guitars, The Shades draw on influences from The Beatles and Crosby, Stills & Nash, to Stevie Wonder and Chance the Rapper, to create an uncommonly good sound. Impressive arrangements, tight harmonies, and creative mashups are hallmarks of The Shades’ live act, which has reached audiences from Chicago’s House of Blues to New York’s Rockwood Music Hall, with nearly a dozen college campuses in between.
Having already received critical acclaim for their first single, ‘Take You Home’, from American Songwriter Magazine and NewSong Music’s International Songwriting Contest, the group received nationwide honors when lead vocalist Andrew DeMuro landed a spot on ‘Team Adam Levine’ in Season 11 of NBC’s ‘The Voice’. In partnership with Green Light Go Publicity, The Shades released their first major recorded effort – a six-song EP entitled, Miles Made of Inches, in October 2017.
