Childhood friends hailing from Walthamstow, East London - SHANGHAI BLUES are Chalky (Vocals, Bass), Reece (Guitar), James (Guitar) and Mike (Drums). Although having only formed under two years ago, SHANGHAI BLUES have already traveled the length and breadth of the UK and continue to sell out shows to their insatiable fanbase. Known for their raucous live stage presence, they have already made a name for themselves with slots at The Great Escape and City Sound Project alongside tour dates with Marsicans, Glass Caves, Theme Park, Palace, The Rifles and Judas with their shows drawing the attention of Music Week, The Evening Standard and NME.
The band have already featured on several taste-maker playlists including Indie List, Hot New Bands & Fresh Finds, plus support at Apple Music (BOTW), Abbie McCarthy (BBC Intro/Radio 1). CLASH, Madison Square Gardens, It’s All Indie, Punktastic, WTHB and a swathe of other blogs have also recently lent their voices to the band’s lengthy list of early champions.
