SHAG is a rock band hailing from Edmonton, AB and mixes an upbeat rock sound with catchy riffs, singable choruses and explosive guitar solos.
SHAG originated in the shag carpeted basement where Trevor, Jess and Travis first started jamming in 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 live local scene in Edmonton and surrounding area and built up their following and made some new local music pals. SHAG then recorded and released their first EP "SHAG Reinvent's Music" in May of 2016.
Two years later, SHAG has recorded their first full length album "Thursday Night Special" at Royal Studio in Edmonton and released the album in June of 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!
SHAG's follow up to 2018's "Thursday Night Special" picks up right where that one left off. Their second EP released from the frozen prairies of Canada: "All Supply, No Demand" was released on October 17, 2019.
SHAG has shared the stage with other great Canadian bands like Captain Tractor, Current Swell, Altameda, Weaves and Girlfriend Material.
