The Shift


‘The Shift’ is a young and upcoming band from the local area that poses an authentic, energetic acoustic sound that is extremely unique. All members are currently under 17 and have been together since October 2011. They have previously preformed live on KFM with their original song ‘Heart Shaped Tattoo’ and have also just released their brand new music video ‘They Were Wrong’. They busk on Grafton Street almost every Saturday. They have performed in The Sugar Club, The Moate Theatre, The Killashee and Fairways Hotels and Cullen’s Lakeside Lounge among others.

These four lads really enjoy making music. They have recently produced a CD and have been invited to play at the Stadtfest in Bad Lippspringe in Germany in October.
