Biography

Richmond, United States

Shy, Low was founded by four members of post-metal outfit VESSEL from Richmond, Virginia in January of 2011 — Gregg Peterson (guitar), Zakk Bryant (guitar), Ian Currie (bass), and Sean Doody (drums). In an experimental switch of genre comes what the listener hears today: a creative blend of instrumental compositions coming from the diverse and varying influences of Shy, Low’s four discrete members.

Immediately after the band came together, Shy, Low began writing songs for what would eventually become their debut self-titled record. The first track they completed was “Farewell: A New Beginning,” a song that signifies the end of their post-metal career and the start of their experiment with entirely instrumental music. Quickly, they began pumping out five more tracks that would become the body of their first record. In May of 2011, Shy, Low entered the studio with Allen Bergendahl of Viking Recording in Richmond, Virginia to begin production on their record. After releasing the self-titled debut album independently in the fall of 2011, the band officially rereleased the record with European based indie label Fluttery Records on January 20, 2012.

After their first tour and mild success with their debut, the band began to contemplate what direction they wanted to take in their future musical endeavors.
