Shanty are a seven-piece reggae collective from northwest London; they describe their sound as ‘stomping bass, soulful hooks and party vibes’, with cross influences ranging from Soul, Electronic and Hip Hop embedded in the shanty sound. New to the scene and making a significant impact after the online release of ‘Waiting’; Shanty’s third ever show was at last year’s Secret Garden Party and the following week they opened up the main stage at Leopallooza festival.

Keeping the momentum of their debut going, Shanty spent the rest of 2013 appearing at a number of UK festivals and filling out well-known venues across the UK. The boys we’re play listed on Gary Crowley’s show on BBC London as part of BBC Introducing.

2014 is set to be a big year for Shanty, with a vast amount of confirmed shows and summer festivals already under their belt, there is nothing slowing these boys down. Shanty are set to release their debut single ‘Blackout’. The track comes of the back of their 2013 autumn UK tour, which they kicked off by supporting Neville Staple from The Specials. Due to release in March 2014, Blackout will be available for free download as a thank you to the fans that’s have waited patiently while Shanty work on their upcoming EP – of which the band promises; “the EP will be out later in the year, we’re just waiting for the sun to come out”.

Shanty has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with the likes of Bastille, The Skints, Neville Staple, and Prince Fatty.
