Meet Your June Feature Artists | SHAG ROCK

24 May 2018

There's no denying. WE LOVE SHAG ROCK. The Brisbane boys have been absolutely killing it lately. They just wrapped up a regional QLD tour with The Rubens and Tia Gostelow and they're just about to release their new single 'Double Life' as well as embarking on an East Coast Headline tour. We're pretty chuffed to welcome them to the family as our JUNE feature artists. 

We caught up with the band to find out a bit more about them ahead of their upcoming tour.

So Shag Rock, tell us a bit about yourself... 

Shag Rock started in high school when Nick Cavdarski (Bass) Jacob Reed (Guitar, Vocals) and Alex Wilson (Vocals, Guitar) started jamming together, Max Beech joined later between albums. We describe our sound as Dance Party Surf Pop as it is quite broad in terms of genre. We are very much a Live Band and yearn for the road and touring, We have supported bands such as Ocean Alley, The Rubens, Lime Cordiale, as well as played numerous festivals around Australia and America. 

What's your go-to playlist and do you have a favourite track off it?

We have just created our tour playlist, which includes everything we listen to on tour and long drives, its mostly the creme de la crop of exciting new aussie music plus a few old faves. 
 
 
 

What's the thing main piece of advice you wish someone had told you before you entered the music industry. 

Get yourself out there playing gigs, just play and play and play. Our best friend in the Industry Ian Haug said once that a show is worth 10 practices so just get your mates together with whatever gear you have (don't stress if its not the best) and start playing, and have as much fun as you can in the process :)
