SHAG is a four piece rock band hailing from Edmonton AB, but originally all four members are from a rural Alberta town called Kitscoty. SHAG mixes all of the bands musical influences into an upbeat rock sound with catchy riffs, singable choruses and explosive guitar solos. The name “SHAG” originated from the shag carpeted basement where Trevor, Jess and Travis first started jamming in the their early university years then Zack joined the group in late 2014 and added a whole new dimension to the band. SHAG started to hit the local scene in Edmonton and surrounding area and built up their following and made some new pals. SHAG then recorded and released their first EP “SHAG Reinvent’s Music” in May of 2016. Two years later, SHAG recorded their first full length album “Thursday Night Special” at Royal Studio in Edmonton and it was released in June 2018. The lead single “Do Better” gained popularity and scored some local radio airplay and the full album was well-received by fans and critics! Shortly following this, SHAG got right back into the studio to record a follow up EP of brand new bangers. Also recorded at Royal Studio picking up right where “Thursday Night Special” left off, the second EP “All Supply, No Demand” was released from the frozen prairies of Canada on October 17, 2019. Where there is no need, SHAG delivers!
