The Shelters
The Shelters
The Shelters released their debut LP in June 2016 via Warner Bros. Records, a
blast of Southern Californian rock and roll from a four-piece like they used
to make them, when the factory was still up and running. Co-produced by
Tom Petty, this album comes at you from behind, nothing you were
The Shelters had just banded together when Petty heard them and got a gut
feeling about what they could be. He gave the Shelters the keys to his home
studio and showed them a few things. Though mostly he left them alone,
Petty had enough sense to leave the gear powered up. Maybe they were
determined to show him he hadn’t made a mistake. Maybe they just liked the
way those old tube amps sounded. They seized the moment and got to
work, insistent on becoming a band. A real band.
One listen to their singles “Rebel Heart,” “Gold,” or any other of the ten
songs on their debut, and you’ll know they pulled it off. Led by the songs,
harmonies and twin-guitar sound of Chase Simpson and Josh Jove, and
powered by drummer Sebastian Harris’s and bassist Jacob Pillot’s groove
obsession, the band has put together a collection of recordings that have an
immediacy, an emotion, and a musical intelligence that suggests these boys
are beyond their years.
People are going to reference some of the great rock and roll bands of
yesterday and today. But this is no tribute show. The sounds they’ve made
seem to have been dragged from the vaults and forced to fit the present. It’s
all a beautiful reminder that rock and roll may have slipped out of view for
minute, but it’s still out there, alive in the hands of the ones who need it the
The Shelters are closing out a busy 2017 touring schedule which included
dates with Royal Blood, Kaleo, The Head and The and The Lumineers – plus
festivals such as Lollapalooza, Forecastle, British Summertime Hyde Park,
Spain’s Azkena festival and Poland’s Open’er Festival.
Mrs. Henry
Mrs. Henry
Burnin’ nitro soul all for the sake of rock n’ roll, Mrs. Henry is a live band. An electric baptism more likely to draw converts than appease convention. Every time the beat drops, the organ swells, the guitar squeals and the bass charges through the mystical into an intergalactic boogie, it’s only the reckless moment that you hear - in all of its murderous triumph. On a torrent of improvisation, Mrs. Henry penetrates the pandemonium. Endurance is their vocation and bringing live music into a new era is their occupation. Landing heavy on the one, leaning hard into the two, Mrs. Henry is a constant reminder that rock n’ roll - seething, bleeding, living rock n’ roll - is always relevant.

Since 2012, Mrs. Henry has shuffled, swung and boogied their way into cult status, earning an unrivaled reputation atop their already well-established individual credits. Based in Otay, California, and fronted by guitarist, Daniel Cervantes (Howlin’ Rain, Creature and the Woods), the quartet features keyboardist and crooner Jody Bagley (The Blue Moonies, Cathouse Thursday), drummer Chad Lee (Elijah Ford, The Silent Comedy) and bassist Blake Dean (Happy Ron Hill, Boss Run).

With their latest release Vol. II, Mrs. Henry completes the second half of their ambitious two-volume debut. A thunderous roar across the aesthetically driven rock landscape, Vol. II was recorded straight to tape without second-guessing or second chances. The 3-LP debut is a seminal battle cry and collective manifesto, combining in-studio and on-stage live recordings, proving once again that spontaneity will never die and that the art of abandonment will always belong to rock n’ roll.

Mrs. Henry’s Mothership is ready for lift off and all you got to do is climb aboard.
