With a sound which could be described as a mixture of grunge and alternative rock influences, Sheer are a four piece alternative hard rock band formed and located in Shetland.

SHEER | Premieres on Sunday 18 April at 7pm

The set will be premiered across our YouTube, Facebook and Instagram TV channels, and will be available to view online until Monday 31 May.

Sheer features Josh Smith (Vocals), Brydon Sales (Guitar), Ewan Moncrieff (Drums) and Scott Priest (Bass).

Ewan, Brydon and Scott attended the HNC Music course at Mareel together in 2017 and formed the band not long after playing together for the first Student Night. They began as a three-piece, then after coming joint first at Battle of the Bands with Josh in the following year, we asked him to join. The band played at the Big Takeover in 2018, a few gigs in Glasgow and the Orkney Rock Festival main stage in 2019 to name the highlights. Their most recent performance was a busy gig with a few other local bands at the Bop Shop at the tail end of December 2019.

Our goals for the future are to play more regular gigs and establish a foothold in the music scene off-island. We would also love to collaborate with other local bands and arrange shows together once the situation allows.
