“Influenced as much by Old Man Luedecke as by Arcade Fire, it is as if Pete Seeger met up with the Smashing Pumpkins for a ski and a jam. The different musical influences collide with intention and precision and avoid hipster cliché.” – Exclaim
This five piece, alternative folk rock band that emerged from Fernie, BC in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in 2009 has taken their highly energetic live show from humble beginnings to the international stage.
The band’s striking and energy-packed sound has evolved from their eclectic musical influences and their unique experiences as individuals. Their progressive pairing of acoustic instrumentation with electric counterparts, harmonies, and driving rhythm, continues to develop and reach new heights.
They were recently nominated for Rock Artist of the Year at The 2021 Western Canadian Music Awards and their song ‘Looking For’ was on the long list for the International Songwriting Competition.
Shred Kelly are: Tim Newton – Guitar, Sage McBride – Keys, Jordan Vlasschaert – Bass, Ty West – Guitar, Ryan Mildenberger – Drums
