Blending anthemic choruses, musical builds and releases with heartfelt and personal lyrics, C. SHIROCK delivers with a vulnerability, urgency, and an aching vocal that is uniquely his own. Driving rhythms and bass are anchors to the soaring melodies, layers of keyboards, and programming that call to mind the emotive, intelligent pop music of artists such as Peter Gabriel and David Bowie.
The cultural influences of C. SHIROCK’s upbringing, both musically and melodically, can be heard in his new work and the collaborations with producers, programmers, artists, and instrumentalists. Raised in the Philippines and Scotland, before relocating to Detroit, and later Nashville, his new work blends seamlessly, his refined melodic and pop sensibility, with world rhythms, his classical training, a modern pop sensibility, and hints of Phil Collins, New Order, Prince, U2, and The Cure.
This new music from C. SHIROCK marks the beginning of a new chapter for the Nashville and Los Angeles based artist, and the continuation of his catalog of music that has brought so much joy, hope, and solidarity to many fans before.
