The Danish Rock-pop Duo SHADES & PETERS are inspired by Classic Rock Acts like Bryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen and Rod Stewart but they also have a certain influence from the Nashville scene such as Keith Urban, Sugarland and Rascal Flatts who has left a lasting impression which shines through in their music.
Rene Shades and Martie Peters have been friends since childhood and started their first band together before they ventured out on different musical routes. Martie has been lead singer of the Danish hard rock band Push and René is bass player in Pretty Maids and has been musical partner to Mike Tramp for several years.
But now they have teamed up for the first time in many years and ended right back where they started. "It was the right thing to do at the right time", Peters says: "This Band is who we are and what we grew up on. It"s probably the most honest record we could make at this time in our lives".
The debut album features a gathering of the duo"s musical heroes:
Jim Cregan (guitar), Kevin Savigar (Keyboards), Jimmy Z (saxophone and harmonica), Tony Brock (Drums) - all from Rod Stewart"s legendary band from the 70s and 80s.
