SHAED has garnered a growing fan base and attention after the release of their debut EP, Just Wanna See, last September via Photo Finish Records. The trio from Washington, DC, comprised of twin brothers Max and Spencer Ernst and lead singer Chelsea Lee met during high school and embarked on individual music projects before forming the band last year. Lee has been singing since a young age and signed a record deal with Atlantic Records at 18 years old. Meanwhile, the Ernst brothers had a publishing deal while performing as The Walking Sticks. In less than a year, the combination of their talents led to industry recognition, tours with Marian Hill, Bishop Briggs and Sir Sly, along with appearances at numerous festivals that included SXSW 2017. Admist time in and out of the studio for touring, the band is working on their debut full-length.
SHAED took time to speak with B-Sides On-Air host, Pete Mar, during their tour stop in San Francisco about their backgrounds, plans for the album and more. Check out the interview:
