Individually, the members of theSHIFT are highly sought-after musicians whove recorded and toured the world with music royalty. Together, this powerhouse trio craft vigorous, multi-layered rock as heard on its debut 7th Direction, to be released on April 14. This dynamic sound can be heard through the song Control, recently premiered by Diffuser.
Stream Control here:
theSHIFT is comprised of John Shannon (vocals/guitar), MJ Lambert (drums) and Ben Geis (bass). Having each attended the famed Berklee College of Music, the three musicians come from a wide-ranging music spectrum. Shannon has recorded and toured with top-national acts like John Mayer, Lauren Hill and Ben Harper, and also composed music for comedian Louis CKs live specials and hit FX series, Louie. Lambert and Geis musical roots lie deep in the world of hip hop, having backed legends Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick. Despite continuing to be in high-demand for session work, the trio has made theSHIFT their primary focus, determined to inject rock with the rebellious boldness lacking in todays climate.
theSHIFT is constantly on the road, bringing its vivacious rock n roll spirit to life onstage. The trio will continue to tour nation-wide leading up to the release of 7th Direction, with more dates to be announced shortly.
