Shadow & The Thrill is a modern blues infused, groove laden, hook filled melodic rock band that comes from the streets of Los Angeles and New Orleans bringing you songs of salvation to soothe the soul! Their debut album, SUGARBOWL, was mixed by the certified multi-platinum and Grammy award winning Sylvia Massy (Grammy: Johnny Cash).
Shadow & The Thrill’s future is largely dictated by the past of the two men behind the band. Tony, as a Grammy Nominated (Great White), multi-platinum, Billboard charting writer and musician, and Brentt as a tireless and sought after touring and session drummer and producer. Together they have created an album experience that rivals their iconic rock and pop influences.
SUGARBOWL is an eclectic mix of songs that thematically tell a set of stories that are universally recognizable. The lyrics tell a story of the trials and struggles that every relationship goes through as it crumbles. The heartache, the anguish, and the determination to move forward are captured song after song through the incredibly versatile lead vocals and masterful guitar work of Tony Cardenas-Montana, accompanied by soulful sounds of Brentt Acrement’s B3 playing and his slinky and sensual drum grooves.
