*Together John Shannon (vocals/guitar), MJ Lambert (drums) and Ben
Geis (bass) craft earth-shattering anthemic rock. The powerhouse trio’s
defiant yet atmospheric sound is perfectly captured on its debut 7th
Direction where “Kobra” the first single received it’s world premiere on
Loudwire. “Dreams” the second single off of 7th Direction landed the #1
spot for several weeks on Lima, Peru’s top rock radio station Radio Doble
Nueve. Topping the Charts for a total of 7 weeks eventually being voted #5
best song of the year out of a list of 150 international mainstream
acts.*

*The Huffington Post recently premiered the video for the third single
“Consecrate” and reported, “Together, the music and the video provide a
spiritual aura that is subtle, unpredictable and claims no specific
religious color. But still, it’s there, like a curious field of suppressed
energy. It’s almost shamanistic.” 7th Direction was recorded at Brooklyn’s
Mission Sound and Manhattan’s JRock Studios produced by Jamie Siegel
(Taking Back Sunday, Santana). Referencing the Native American concept of
directions, the album title further reflects a deeper meaning behind
Leaders of the Shift’s approach to music. “Our music is about altering your
conscious through the sheer power of rock n roll,” declares Shannon. “Our
lyrics tend to question the nature of your reality.” *

*In the fall of 2016 Leaders of the Shift approached by the record label “Reimagine Music”
to do a full album of original versions of songs by The Police, a band they
have often been compared to being a high energy and inventive trio.
Recorded at Brooklyn’s Trout and Copperfish Studios, the resulting album
entitled “Leaders of the Shift Reimagine The Police” was released on
October 13, 2017 featuring original arrangements of songs such as
“Roxanne”, “Bring on the Night” and “Spirits in the Material World”.*

*The band is currently involved in studio collaborations of new original
material with Counting Crows’ guitarist/producer David “Immy” Immergluck
and legendary songwriter and co-creator of the famed Woodstock Festival of
1969, Artie Kornfeld.*

*A couple of fun facts about the band–Well…Last year went down and
toured South America following our success in Peru with our song “Dreams”.
While we were in Peru we participated in a Native American led San Pedro
Ritual and sweat at the base of Machu Picchu in a 4,800-year-old town
called Ollantaytambo. Looking at the Sun God Temple on our Left and the
Eagle God Temple on our right…it was one of the most awe-inspiring
moments we’ve had as a band. The next day we hiked Machu Picchu. Absolutely
brilliant! And the best part…..it all goes into the music. *
