Rock 'N' Roll from Nashville TN

“We don’t have to buy what they sell.” It’s a lyric from Sound&Shape’s new EP but it could also be seen as an ethos the band has clung to for the length of its career. Starting off in a time where Rock And Roll was seen as almost passe and practically unmarketable, the band saw a point on the horizon and has worked tirelessly to reach it. An artistic vision based on both brutal honesty are theatric artiface, Sound&Shape’s body of work speaks as a testament to the belief in the transformative power of music, Rock and Roll specifically.

A mostly straight line can be drawn from the band’s ambitious debut record, “Where Machines End Their Lives,” through the “Love Electric” EP, to the more straightforward “Now Comes The Mystery” EP and the second proper album, “Hourglass.” With their third full length, 2014’s “Bad Actors” they went further afield in all directions and reached new personal songwriting heights. Now they’ve come to “Peasants,” a 5 song EP that takes the band’s sound and again elevates it to new levels. Tightly packed musically, with lyrics relatable on both a personal and socio-political level, this EP is the next natural step in their evolution.

"IF YOU LOVE AN UPLIFTING BAND, THE COLLECTION IS FOR YOU" -BOB BOILEN, NPR MUSIC
"It didn't take long for David Wimbish's solo project to become a full band. The community that had inspired his music quickly began to embody the songs, wielding instruments last played in middle school marching band, and fulfilling 'the Collection's name. Coming from Greensboro, North Carolina, their songs stem from an awareness of their state's folk roots, and an appreciation of orchestral and world music. After the loss of dear friends and family, the band released their first full length, "Ars Moriendi", featuring over 25 musicians, and wrestling with questions of mortality and spirituality. As the last year has brought more focus to the Collection, both in size and in vision, they released their new record, "Listen To The River," while still retaining their original inspiration and muse - the community of those intrigued by the mystery of life."
