SIR SLY [website
with The LateShift [website] 

Sir Sly
Since forming in 2012, Sir Sly have forged their singular sound by drawing upon each member's long-honed musical talents: Jacobs's introspective yet infinitely searching lyricism, Suwito's in-studio ingenuity, and Coplen's sophisticated musicianship and sense of songcraft.

The LateShift
Rooted in rock, blooming in melodious consonance The LateShift can be described as a blend of soulful melodies moved by riff-driven rock. By combining elements of old school rock & roll and modern pop, these guys have a distinct sound that is not to be missed.
