Roadgeek' music is a core creation of local artist / musician Michael Shanks, fleshed out ‘live’ with friends. Michael’s first Independent album, 2012’s "Sugarloaf" took him 53 weeks to record in his spare time. This between paid gigs as a digital game designer, clip creator; Michael sang, played and Produced every instrument from Guitar to Saxophone.

The highly individual engaging material on this record was critically well received more-so, being equally matched in Michael’s creation of an inordinately original clip.

The confronting clip was the dual 2012 / 2013 Soundkilda Winner- 'Best Music Video' and 'Best Independent Video', in a field of over 90 clips including those of Gotye and Alpine.

‘The Strangler’s’ have selected Roadgeek to open for them at their forthcoming Melbourne show.

Michael Shanks / Roadgeek are something to look forward to ....

The more you listen to this album, the more pretty unique things you pick up on ....’

"A brooding slab of driving rock with a heavy QOTSA vibe, perfect stuff in time for Summer." - DIY Magazine
