"Gang harmonies a la BSS, balanced out with Dan Mangan's earnestness and you are closing on on Shred Kelly's new track, "Archipelago' from their forthcoming album. Its as if each island in the archipelago had its own voice and they all raised them to the big sky. It all begins with a killer banjo riff and its all up from there." -

“Shred Kelly wowed the audiences throughout the weekend with their high-energy performances.” - Orillia Packet



Soaked in electric crescendos and folk tinged sing-along anthems, Shred Kelly is known for their high energy live show that ignites dance floors with their alternative folk sound. Over three albums and countless tours, the five British Columbians have developed their signature sound by taking inspiration from the mountains they hail from and the people who inhabit them. Shred Kelly has seamlessly fused traditional instrumentation with modern rock, presenting a sound that is both unique and compelling.

Shred Kelly has produced their most ambitious project yet with their fourth album Archipelago.  The collaborative song writing of Tim Newton, Sage McBride, Jordan Vlasschaert and Ty West have pulled inspiration through individual experiences and musical influences. The result is a dynamic and cohesive collection of dreamy, yet explosively exciting songs dipped in themes of relationships and the world in the modern age. Using traditional instrumentation at the base of the songwriting, the album explodes into a symphony of sounds incorporating banjos, ukuleles, synthesizers, guitar hooks, harmonies and pulsing beats.
