Dead Shakes is a 4-piece outfit made up of members (past and present) of other Dubai punk scene alumni, Grand Hotel Paradox and Fighting Superheroes. Their brand of gruff, melodic punk rock can be best described as something akin to a three day hangover after a four day whiskey-soaked drinking binge.
Sounding like the off spring of Jamie T and Kings of Leon, Lee has a unique vocal sound, and lyrics that come from the heart, As lead singer of Scunthorpe based band The Marras, he has supported bands such as Reverend and the Makers, Cast, Twisted Wheel and many more, up and down the country, and wowed crowds wherever they playPlaying alongside some of the best unsigned bands in he country, whilst building a large and loyal following their hometown, the last year has seen the Marras go from strength to strength, on a rapidly growing music scene m. The Marras stand head and shoulders above their peers Lee’s songwriting style, shows his influences of Rolling Stones to U2, Bob Dylan and everything in between.
Without a doubt this one man to watch out for in 2015
