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 band's 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 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 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!
Hooking up with Arnel again at Royal Studio SHAG re-recorded a set list staple and released a fan favourite in August of 2019... MEGALODON. Shortly following this, SHAG recorded an EP of brand new bangers. Also recorded at Royal Studio, SHAG's follow up to 2018's "Thursday Night Special" picks up right where that one left off. The second EP released from the frozen prairies of Canada: "All Supply, No Demand" was released on October 17, 2019. Where there is no need, SHAG delivers!
During the pandemic, SHAG headed into the studio and started tracking songs for a new EP. The first single to be released from this upcoming EP is called "Lying Through Your Teeth Doesn't Count as Flossing" and is set to release on August 20, 2021! SHAG has shared the stage with many great Canadian acts such as Captain Tractor, Current Swell, Altameda and Weaves.
