Shad has quickly become one of Canada’s most respected young artists — period. His 3rd fulllength album, titled TSOL, hits stores on May 25th, 2010 and will be accompanied by a CrossCanada tour starting May 27th in Winnipeg.
Fans can expect more of what Shad does best on his forthcoming release. TSOL is a carefully crafted mix of hardhitting, clever rhyme schemes and soul searching social commentary, but it also exudes a new confidence from Shad, who the National Post praised as “Canada’s Best Rapper” in 2008.
Shad’s sophomore record The Old Prince (2007) was received with top reviews by music critics across the board, snagging him a Juno nomination for Best Rap Recording of the Year and securing a spot on the coveted Polaris Music Prize shortlist.
Completing three national tours in 2008 and performing in 46 cities this past summer on the 2009 VANS Warped Tour, Shad has over 200 live shows under his belt and looks most comfortable when he’s in front of an audience. From the Hillside Music Festival to Warped Tour to opening for Common and Lupe Fiasco, and headlining his own Canadian tours, Shad is able to connect with music lovers through his remarkable showmanship.
Shad’s skillful wordplay and smooth flow on The Old Prince, combined with his engaging live shows, and four outstanding music videos (The Old Prince Still Lives at Home became YouTube’s #1 featured video World Wide and Compromise was featured on Kanye West’s Blog) have allowed Shad to develop tribes of devout fans right across the globe.
With two slowroasting classics under his belt, Shad continues to walk the humble path. He appreciates the chance to make and share his thoughts through music.
