Passion for Raw Instrumentation

Shy Harry is a Canadian rock band with a passion for raw instrumentation. After adding keyboard/organ into the mix, and in keeping with their live-off-the floor sound, Shy Harry is now creating a brand new catalog of original music.  Their brand new and bigger than ever rock EP, ‘Another Year’, is out NOW!

The new music video for the title track, ‘Another Year’, is also now out!   CLICK HERE to watch it!

Classic Rock Mixed Modern Alternative

The band has just released an experimental rock concept EP, exploring a deeper passion in their roots…stemming from classic rock then combining modern alternative music. Delving into their new sound after adding a fourth member, Shy Harry continues to push the envelope in developing as a group and in their writing. Shy Harry balances self-reflection and self-doubt, while simultaneously presenting a positive message through love and unity, attempting to bind a community of listeners who feel passionately about their own lives, and world around them. Their sound – while still evolving – combines melodic groove atmospheres with heavy hitting hooks.

You may also find Shy Harry at various corporate events, private functions, and weddings showcasing a large repertoire of cover songs. Look out for this band in the Canadian music scene.

Canadian Musician Magazine:

“Shy Harry is a rock and roll band in the purest sense – one with a passion and penchant for raw, organic, and gimmick-free performances in the studio and on the stage. Boasting an undeniable chemistry, tight grooves, and seemingly effortless multi-part harmonies, the band borrows the best aspects of various eras of rock and blends them together for a sound that’s sure to appease the purists while welcoming new ears to the party.
The band dropped a pair of new singles – “She Never Sleeps” and “Wild One” – in 2019, setting the stage for a big 2020 that promises plenty of new material and a packed show schedule. The tracks represent Shy Harry at their best, both as individual players and as a collective. The aforementioned penchant for vibe-loaded, live-off-the-floor swagger is palpable on both, and ultimately, they build anticipation for what’s to come from Shy Harry in the (hopefully) not-so-distant future.”
