Biography

The Shields Brothers! are one thing, FUN. So fun they recently won the FOX ROCKS Battle of the Bands and appeared on Fox Morning News in DC. The brothers combine solid groves, crisp harmonies, and excellent lead vocals with the showmanship of stadium rock bands. Young, good looking, and experienced – they’ve played parties, corporate events, bars, restaurants, original music venues, puppet shows, city cultural events, horse races, high school dances and bull riding competitions from here to Japan. And they’ve managed to do this all in the span of two years. The most frequent question they get: Are you actually brothers? YES!

Devin, 23, a.k.a the scientist, plays bass and sings lead vocals. May ’09 he was awarded a master’s degree in engineering from UVA. He proudly wears his specially tailored “smart pants” to every show. He’s the tech guru of the Bros allowing the band to play an outrageous range of music (unlikely for a trio). But he’s not just any nerd - he’s a showman and a performer, slinging his bass guitar, singing lead and backing vocals. Devin sings in a low tenor that bridges the gap and makes the three part harmonies the band is known for.

Rory, 21, a.k.a., the blonde, plays drums and sings lead vocals. He is a ball of energy. Rory takes most of his inspiration from Tommy Lee, Keith Moon and Animal from the Muppet show. Showmanship is priority number one with Rory. He is often seen standing while he is playing the drums or running around the stage working the crowd. His high tenor voice has the clarity needed for singing the brothers’ pop rock songs.

Tristan, 26, a.k.a, the captain, plays guitar and sings lead vocals. Tristan makes sure the show runs like clockwork. He plays a blistering guitar but writes the group’s tender love ballads. As a performer Tristan has an incredibly strong stage presence. When he sings and plays guitar you can’t help but listen. He sings in a baritone growl that is perfect for rock.

Lyrics

Hold Me

Written By: Shields Brothers

I’ve been writing down everything I say for about a week or so.
And the road is fine and I don’t mind hanging out after the show.
But they’re in tonight and they’re gone tomorrow
They always tell me about their sorrow
And sometimes I just wish they’d go away.

I want you to hold me
Like you’ll never let me go
I want you squeeze me, squeeze me, squeeze me
And babe I’ll let you know
If you hurt me, Oh darling
Well I don’t think you could
Cause baby baby when you hurt it feels so good.

I wanna leave this bar the smoke is getting to my head.
And I know that when I crawl home I’ll jump right in my bed.
And maybe if I’m lucky that girl will want to stay
And if she does I know just what she’ll say.

I want you to hold me
Like you’ll never let me go
I want you squeeze me, squeeze me, squeeze me
And babe I’ll let you know
If you hurt me, Oh darling
Well I don’t think you could
Cause baby baby when you hurt it feels so good.
I want you to hold me
Like you’ll never let me go
I want you squeeze me, squeeze me, squeeze me
And babe I’ll let you know
If you hurt me, Oh darling
Well I don’t think you could
Cause baby baby when you hurt it feels so good.

I said baby when it hurts it feels so good

Hold me
Hold Me
Hold Me
It feels so good.

Walk of Shame

Written By: Shields Brothers

He said “Who’s that creeping. Creeping up the stairs”.
I said “I thought you were sleeping. I did not mean to scare.”
He said “get your shoes and get the hell on out of here
I if catch you with my daughter you will have something to fear”.

Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)

8 am on my way to class
Saw my good friend walking and she was a mess
She’s got her hair tangled up. She don’t look right
And she was still in the clothes she was in last night!

Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)

Well I know it might sound dirty
I know it might sound crude
But come on people you know you’ve done it too
Early in the morning walk it off
If you wanna have fun then you better do the walk

Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)
Do the walk, walk of shame (WALK!)

Dad Song

Written By: Shields Brothers

Dad we appreciate you
And all the things that you do
We appreciate.
I said Dad we appreciate you
And all the things that you do
We appreciate.

Always there to set up our lights
Always there to get into a fight
All the word you say they inspire
We’ll be there when you retire

I said Dad we appreciate you
And all the things that you do
We appreciate.

Ohh we appreciate
Ohh we appreciate
Ohh we appreciate
Destroy

Punk Rock Girl

Written By: Shields Brothers

3:15 at the High school
No laws ain’t stopping you
Well I know I know that it’s wrong
But girl I’ve been waiting way too long

For this Punk Rock Girl (Punk rock Girl)
I wanna be your rock and roll world (Punk rock Girl)
For this Punk Rock Girl (Punk rock Girl)
I wanna be your rock and roll world (Punk rock Girl)

Punk rock girls look so fine
I just got to make up my mind
Sarah Beth or Linda Lu
I don’t know which one to choose

For this Punk Rock Girl (Punk rock Girl)
I wanna be your rock and roll world (Punk rock Girl)
For this Punk Rock Girl (Punk rock Girl)
I wanna be your rock and roll world (Punk rock Girl)

Won't You Be My Girlfriend

Written By: Shields Brothers

I saw you sitting on the floor watching jeopardy
I wish that you we're over here sitting next to me

Won't you be my Girlfriend
(Won't you be my Girlfriend)
Won't you be my Girlfriend
(Won't you be my Girlfriend)

You're sitting all alone
Staring at the phone
I'll be there for you
You know my love is true

She said you know I always had a little crush on you
But you were with someone and I didn't know what do to

Won't you be my Girlfriend
(Won't you be my Girlfriend)
Won't you be my Girlfriend
(Won't you be my Girlfriend)

I know its sad and all that he broke up with you
But if you think about I'm better looking too

Won't you be my Girlfriend
(Won't you be my Girlfriend)
Won't you be my Girlfriend
(Won't you be my Girlfriend)
