Five song Ep- Transition array


Feeling a bit camera shy


In 1997, three friends got together to jam and hang-out. Practicing in lead singer Gerry Lemos’ shed, the band honed their edgy, raw sound. Now six years later, and a few line-up changes, SHEDD seems primed for success.

After the first three years, Gerry’s cousin and percussionist Fern joined the band as well as long time friend, John on bass. The band had finally achieved a solid foundation and continuity that it had been lacking. A five-song EP followed, titled “It’s All Good”. The process was cathartic for the trio as they were able to relate the everyday growing pains of life in small town Bradford.

A strong and loyal following allowed the band to play such venues as Toronto’s Lee’s Palace, the 360, and the Lava Lounge. The band was able to sell over 500 CD’s within 6 months of the release. The EP also ranked 57th on’s alternative chart.

In 2001 the band embarked on a first; a long-awaited tour of the islands of the Azores in Portugal. Playing festivals for three weeks, the shows came off so well, to the point where they were invited back the next year. Touring in a foreign country gave the guys a taste of what they have always wanted, success. This time they were better known and played to considerably more people.

Bolstered by their successful venture to Portugal, the band came back focused and prepared for recording. The result is the band’s second five-song ep, “Transition Array”, which was recorded by the band and mixed at MetalWorks.

Influenced by diverse acts from punk, alternative, and classic rock, SHEDD is entertaining offers from various record labels.
