Shane Meade & the Sound

Shane Meade

Now playing: Little Love

"Meade's music, a hearty concoction of soul, blues rock, adult contemporary pop, bluegrass and even some jazz, has traces of Sting's solo career, Bob Seger and singer-songwriter Ben Harper. His latest release, Candle Lights & Conspiracies offers a double-disc dose of social-political consciousness and intimate themes, and it's one of the most refreshing listens and meticulously produced CDs of 2010". - - - Julie Garisto, Tampa Bay Times

“An evening with Shane Meade, is an evening well spent for music lovers seeking a refreshing and soulful twist to the singer songwriter realm. One may draw immediate comparisons to the likes of Ben Harper, Dave Matthews, or Peter Gabriel. His stripped down acoustic set is inviting and thought – provoking, touching on the darker side with songs like Self-Portrait and Wander, while bringing us back to the light with songs like Spring Break Over Lunch and Counting Clouds. This unique blend and cross-genre pollination is evident when accompanied by his band - the SOUND. The gritty rocker Cleveland Street, foot tappin’ Carolina Boogie, and island groove Sail Away, make this up and coming artist and Tampa based group a must see”. - - - James Heath, Atlanta Metro Review

"The music of Shane Meade & the Sound should be served with a glass of wine and a long exhale, barefoot and beachside. It is an escaping yet personal sound that makes it possible to flee the stresses of everyday life. His latest album, Candle Lights & Conspiracies, is as natural and intimate as it sounds. The album melts into your eardrums and leaks into your soul. Meade's smooth and warm vocals are inviting and enticing, and all of the musical elements swell together in perfect harmony. The album is full of intrinsic value and forms the most relaxing and intuitive soundtrack to wherever your wandering life leads you". - - Raubi Marie Perilli, Music/Managing Editor – Dive In Tampa Bay
