Garage Bar: Great Deceivers / Shy Guys
Date: Sunday, August 12, 2012 Show Starts: 5:00 pm
The Great Deceivers
The band's second record, available for purchase starting on August 1st, is a much more focused and deeply-rooted effort than the band's initial release. Collaboration in songwriting and attempts to break new personal ground were at the forefront of intentions during the rigorous writing and recording sessions of the album. Upon listening, this focus and attention to detail yields a surefooted sense of maturity too-fleetingly glimpsed on 2010's 'House of Stairs.' Challenging themselves to look beyond preconceived notions of accepted form and function of musical parts the band is very excited to present the fruit of their labor in the form of this 9-song odyssey into self-reflection, frustration, frenzied fear and the insatiable desire to grow and progress. 'Seasons In Reverse' pulls the listener into a realm of harmony, lyrical wit, confused passion and understated melody related in a wide range of musical dynamic.
From Carrboro. Guitarist Sean Neagle and Gavin Welch have been playing music together since the 8th grade. Freshmen year at Chapel Hill High School after several member changes, the group finally acquired drummer Eddie Burgard and bassist Nick Sterling. The group took a fresh start, staring over with new material and creating new songs. The quartet began playing shows under the name Pilot and was later changed to The Shy Guys sophomore year. The group has never played a cover song through out high school. Instead guitarist Sean Neagle writes original lyrics which show influences from Paul Mccartney and John Lennon of the Beatles. The music from the Shy Guys spans a wide range of genres and complexity which they hope can appeal to as many people as possible.
