Coming from Chester, in the North West of England, Shem Sharples is an acoustic rock artist who writes memorable lyrics and catchy melodies. These are delivered with an alternative and arty, psychedelic twist. He performs alongside bass powerhouse, Thor Brown. Shem’s debut album, And The Train Rattled Along, was released late in 2017, featuring twelve Shem originals. They are currently promoting it online.
The duo have an extensive set of over forty songs to choose from. Their live shows have a broad range, from quiet fingerpicked folky numbers, to driving acoustic rock, to psychedelic improvised moments, all done in service to the songs. (Watch out for the frazzled harmonica freakouts!)
They have also started working on their next recording project, to be released later in 2018.
