When Welsh singer-songwriter Danni Parsons found harmonic delight in the raw vocals of Kiwi rock and roller Lance Shepherd.... Wellington based Folk Rock - Indie Pop band 'In The Shallows' was born.
This unlikely duo offer up an exquisitely silken sound that weaves together soaring harmonies, mesmerising vocals and acoustic guitars with relatable lyrics about intricate tales of love, loss, connection, redemption and empowerment. They will be doing a limited number of intimate shows this Spring in celebration of their new single release 'Let's not start a war', that are not to be missed!
‘Superb vocal harmonies’ - David Maclennan – 13th Floor
‘The music coming from the instruments is simply an accompaniment, it is the vocals which transport the listener, all so effortless and easy.’ - Kev Rowland – Muzicnet.co.nz
‘They’ve got some amazing songs. Their album is simply stunning and to hear two people just really capture an atmosphere, I was just entranced. It was very, very special. I felt very fortunate to be there to experience it.’ - Kev Rowland – Tracy’s prog World Podcast on Spotify.
Their 5* rated debut album produced by Steve Rokosh (Calgary, Canada and Nashville, USA) released in Nov 21, won over the ears, heart and soul of muzic.net.nz's Kev Rowland who states "..anyone who enjoys acoustic music, performed by some wonderful singers, containing songs with a purpose yet so varied that the album never gets tiring, will find this simply essential".
W/support from Colette Rivers
Colette Rivers is an American-born, New-Zealand raised, self-proclaimed 'Kiwi', with a deep connection to the earth and sea and has named her debut album ‘Memory Lake’ after her hometown, Lake Taupō.
Rivers unpacks a powerful voice- Country Americana at its core but packed full of hooks and effects. Her roots are in folk and singer-songwriter, yet while the acoustic guitar is always very important to the sound, she is not averse to bringing in other instruments to create soundscapes which mean the songs are very different to each other. The anchor for the album is her wonderful vocals, which are full of depth and passion, as musically this can often lead in directions one simply does not expect.
