The Shades

Equipped primarily with their voices and acoustic guitars, The Shades have developed a signature sound that encompasses elements of popular music from folk & rock, to soul & R&B. Impressive arrangements and tight harmonies are the hallmarks of The Shades’ original music, and critics across generations have taken notice. In 2015, their original song, ‘Take You Home,’ was featured in American Songwriter Magazine as a ‘Daily Discovery,’ and was chosen as one of ten finalists in NewSong Music’s International Songwriting Competition. The group received further honors in 2016 when lead vocalist Andrew DeMuro was selected as a member of Adam Levine's team on Season 11 of NBC's The Voice. Having graced a variety of Chicago’s stages, including House of Blues, Evanston SPACE, Mayne Stage & Navy Pier, The Shades have also been spending a lot of time in the recording studio in 2016 working on an upcoming EP release.
