The Shudders combine their melee of influence to produce a refreshing brand of indie-country-rock.
Vocal harmonies, screaming guitar, warm acoustic and a commanding rhythm section with which to weave their rich tapestry of noise. It’s a tapestry which could be a described as a ‘Crazy Horse - Bright Eyes – Wilco’ for those weaving enthusiasts out there.
After a succession of live performances, sharing the stage with the likes of Miles Hunt of The Wonder Stuff, Chris Helme of The Seahorses, The Young Republic and Ox ~ to mention just a few ~ The Shudders soon found themselves headlining festivals such as The Radio 1 Big Weekend Fringe Festival and the Swindon Shuffle, and playing in venues across the country, including The Borderline (London), The Troubadour (London), The Cavern Club (Liverpool), The Hobbit (Southampton) and The Fleece (Bristol).
Their debut album, produced by Nick Beere at Mooncalf Studios in Wiltshire, was released in December 2009. “The Unfortunate Career of Stede Bonnet, 1688-1718” enjoyed a 3rd place spot in the Amazon folk download chart and established the band as one of the hottest up and coming UK bands.
The band continues to play shows across the region.
