FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Shane Scheib – Fast Friends EP
Indie rock. Brooding baritone. Vintage guitar. Modern production.
Shane Scheib is an indie artist based in Nashville, Tennessee. His music expertly blurs the lines between the energy of alternative rock and the verve of indie-pop.
A creative and forward-thinking performer, Shane is known to produce music with an open heart and an open mind, bridging the gaps between clever arrangements and emotional lyrical wit. His distinctive guitar playing is also the result of lots of labor and dedication: when he was 13, Shane fell in love with the mastery and incredible ability of Stevie Ray Vaughn. He watched the bluesman’s legendary live performances on video repeatedly, eventually mastering the blues and rock formula. Later, he took it to the next level as a trained jazz guitarist with a versatile mindset, incorporating influences as diverse as folk, pop and rock into his music.
Shane Scheib’s music is a lot like his humor: it’s witty, playful, and a little introspective at the same time. In his own words, “Fast Friends sounds like Bono Imagined Dragons while playing guitars that had White Stripes and Silversun Pickups; it was Fun.”
One of the most striking and endearing features of Shane’s sound is definitely his ability to create songs that are challenging and diverse, yet extremely catchy and easy to relate to for a broad palette of listeners.
Shane’s upcoming EP, “Fast Friends”, will be released on September 13th, and it will be available through iTunes and Spotify.

If it’s one thing that award-winning Canadian musician Ed Roman can claim, it’s that he puts his money where his mouth is. Known for the socially-conscious messages in his globally-aware songs like “I Am Love,” “Lay One Down” and “I Found God,” the chart-topping artist is not shy about giving back to those less fortunate. In the spring of 2015, Roman and his wife delivered humanitarian aid and taught music to villages in the poorest sections of Jamaica. Later that year, Ed recorded and donated a track to Heart Songs for Veterans, to benefit military and service members across North America. Ed has also donated music and raised funds for childrens’ cancer charities and more. Read More
What better way to celebrate an election year in the United States than with a cheeky, in your face, shut-up your pie hole song? In true punk form Nick DeStefano and The Spiders have delivered a spot on tag entailing their point of view in a ‘patriotic’ (that is sarcasm) depiction in the tune and video called, “Election Day.”
The scraping, the name calling, the stadium of goofiness and the overhaul of what used to be respectable but has now been made a mockery of as the United States looks like the chief buffoon! All of this falderol is tightly wrapped up into a tribute or cheers of sorts to this process very well in the lyrical content and video imagery DeStefano and The Spiders have put together.
