Our band is a pure rock band with no gimmicks. Charger writes original and inspired music that goes against the grain of trend music. We hope to influence people with our music and give them a great rock show at the same time.


Charger’s roots began to form in the year 2002 when Jay Shehi and Zach Sheffield recorded "Throw Your Colors". This collaboration allowed Jay to join the band on vocals. After bassist Philip Hall and drummer Chris Sims joined the group, Prophecy was finally complete. The group played consistently for roughly two years in both Birmingham and Gadsden until they broke up in 2004. After a short break, the three high school classmates, Jay, Zach, and Philip decided to reunite and re-create their band in the city of Birmingham. The new band, now known as Charger, was accompanied by drummer Eason Franklin for the next year and a half. After Eason's short time with Charger, Chris Long has taken his place on drums, putting a new spin on the Charger originals. The band has achieved much success including performing at City Stages and River Fest in Alabama, as well as competing in the Emergenza semi-finals in Atlanta. Charger has also enjoyed an outstanding response to their new EP that has circulated through the music world creating a powerful buzz. With the band fresh and creatively on the same page, Charger is ready for total domination in the music industry.
