Static Shift

We are a Calgary based, multi album power trio made up of Mitchell Brady (Guitar / Vocals), Keone Friesen (Bass / Harmonica), and Isaiah Stonehouse (Drums / Background Vocals). We have recorded and released two full albums (Windsor Street (2014), Common Bliss (2017)) and an EP (At Odds (2015)), and are always working on new material. Our music is described as a mixture of classic rock and blues, with romps of alternative, indie and psychedelic rock. Our original music carries the audience back to the hey day of rock n' roll, while adding a new and unique modern twist to the mix.

Some of our more notable achivements over the years include:
•National Semi-finalists in CBC's 2017 Searchlight Competition (Top 25 out of thousands of entries)
•Winners of the 2016 and 2017 YYC (Calgary) Music Awards for Rock Recording of the Year, nominees for Group of the Year at the 2016 YYC Music Awards, and winners of the Zachariah and the Prophets Memorial Award at the 2017 YYC Music Awards
•Named into Forksters 2014 Top 100 Bands of the Year with our debut album Windsor Street
•Three time finalists in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 International Songwriters Competition (out of more than 18,000 entries each year). 

We have played venues from as far as the Whiskey A Go Go (Los Angeles) and The Roxy (Vancouver), to as close as Flames Central and MacEwan Hall at home in Calgary. We have also had the privilege to play many other venues and festivals across Alberta and BC such as The Lilac Festival (Calgary), Beaumont Roots and Blues Festival (Edmonton), and the Steamboat Mountain Music Festival (BC). Sharing the stage with artists such as Trooper, Colin James, The Sheepdogs, The Odds, The Northern Pikes, Tim Williams, and others has been an honour. 

e're old souls with young minds, with a goal to share music to people around the world. If you consider yourself to be a live music enthusiast, we'd love to see you at a show.
