The Shivers

BandFolkSinger/Songwriter

We're a duo (sometimes with supporting players): An Australian girl on an old Yamaha Electone Organ and vocals and a guy from New York on guitar and vocals and sometimes a Dr. Sample. The sound recalls everyone from the Velvet Underground and Nico to Leonard Cohen. Songs are the focus.
