The Shaker Hymn Biography

The Shaker Hymn craft sharp and thoughtful pop songs - reminiscent of the lush and warm guitar music of the late 60’s blended with the cavalier approach of acts like Supergrass and Kurt Vile.

The group evoke some of the best characteristics of some familiar bands from across the two ponds but there is a lyrical wit and a bite that is distinctly recognisable from their hometown of Cork. Take Trophy Child or Sucking It Out, the deft hooks and acute observations make the listener appreciate at once that a serious band is at work. There is a sense of glamour to proceedings ­fans of Suede’s early work will be enticed by the nonchalant way that Sherlock spits out the lyrics.

Since the release of their 10-track sophomore record Do You Think You're Clever? in 2016, the band have toured Ireland extensively including festivals; Body & Soul, Hard Working Class Heroes and Knockanstockan. Followed with festival dates in Belgium - while also appearing on the soundtrack to breakout Irish film 'Handsome Devil'.

The band began working on their third album at the tail end of 2017. An unexpected hiatus due to health concerns forced the group to put those plans on halt last year. While the group took a break, songwriters Caoilian Sherlock and Robbie Barron began putting together demos of folk influenced songs inspired by some of the duos favourite artists such as John Prine, Steve Gunn, The Lost Brothers and Joan Shelley. Their new EP 'The Shape of The Sea' is set for release April 10th 2019.
