#TourHappens With…SHAED

Max and Spencer Ernst and Chelsea Lee are the Washington DC soulful electro-pop trio SHAED and are no strangers to making sleek, warm-blooded pop gems of the earworm-kind; fortunately, they’re currently working on new music for an upcoming release later this year. With the rapid pace that their band career has moved since SHAED’s inception, Max, Spencer, and Chelsea are […]

In His Words: Bruno Major

“You know, the craziest thing is having a sold-out show in a place you’ve never been before. That’s mind blowing to me.” Indeed. Bruno is in London and I’m in Los Angeles.

#TourHappens With…The Soft White Sixties
