We are Shaded


An alluring blend of hard-hitting modern pop-punk and poignant rock, complete with R’n’b-driven vocals, Surrey-based SHADED formed in the spring of 2017, product of vocalist Matt East and guitarist Callum Irons. Drawing influence from artists past and present, a definitive sound was established and debut EP The Better Man In Me took shape. With the desire to project their art to an audience, the pair acquired the talents of bassist Dan Bradberry before taking to the road. With extensive touring experience under their belt, gained in such a short period of time, SHADED have shared stages all over mainland UK with the likes of Mallory Knox, The Bottom Line, Homebound, Junior, Coast to Coast, Catch Fire, Why Everyone Left and many more.

They already have an awesome sound and have been hard at work playing shows up and down the mainland, which makes them one U.K. pop-punk band to keep an eye on

The fact that I already think that SHADED are chronically underrated, despite this being their first release is surely only a testament to how bright the future is for them.
