Songs about life to help make yours a little better. Strong male vocal, great songs supported by an exciting some times even funny live solo/band shows.


Barf! Are you sick of reading band bios? I am I much rather talk to you in person. Here are some key points:

latest record was made by grammy award winner producer engineer

Based out of Boston, Shadwell is a five-piece whose sound falls somewhere between contemporary Brit-rock and straight-ahead American rock. Its recently released first full-length album, Clarity (produced and engineered by Ducky Carlisle), has received local corporate airplay and college radio spins across the country as well as been licensed to TV networks including MTV, E!, and Oxygen.
Along with continuous club gigs throughout the northeast – from Boston’s The Middle East and Paradise Rock Club to New York’s Piano’s and Arlene’s Grocery – the band has been selected to play at high-profile music festivals including South By Southwest and the WXKS-FM Kiss Concert. Among other recent accomplishments, Shadwell was named winner of Boston Music Spotlight’s 2009 Battle of the Bands and selected as one of their “Top 10 Local Bands to Watch in 2010.”

“It wouldn’t be shocking to see Shadwell make a breakthrough
step in the near future.”

“They know how to write great songs, have superb melodies, gracefully powerful vocals…They have every element they should have and I can see them selling tons of CDs and packing venues with happy, screamy fans.”
The Noise (Boston)

"A band with loads of talent.” 
Boston Music Spotlight 

“Shadwell must practice somewhere huge and epic, like the edges of cliffs or something. This would be the only way to explain the large, unbound sound of "I Don't Believe"…You feel half-exhausted and half-enervated after this song - both in a good way.
