Shaded Grace is Alternative/Hip-Hop band from Hartford, Connecticut consisting of three members: Antix, Alphawolf, and Ronnie Champagne.
The three musicians met in high school back in 2006 where they formed a strong friendship. They all soon decided to start a band together, fusing all of their favorite types of music. All of them did vocals as well as played multiple instruments. At this time in their life though this was all more of an idea than a reality. Eventually they split up and Alphawolf and Antix went off in their own direction going with a more generic hip-hop sound. They formed the hip-hop duo known as Unseen Presence, which they released two mixtapes under from 2009 to 2010.
In 2011 they decided to leave Unseen Presence behind in hopes of creating a more “original” sound. Thus Shaded Grace was founded. They went back to their original idea of trying to do different musical styles all under one umbrella. They went on to release some compilations, EP’s and their most recent piece of work entitled, “The Coming Storm” which was released in May of 2012. They started playing shows all over the east coast but found that they we’re being thrown into categories with other artists that they felt they shouldn’t have been in. So in late 2012 the two emcees began to brainstorm on how to break this label that they had been put under. They decided to approach guitar player and long time friend Ronnie Champagne and once again see if perhaps he would join Shaded Grace.
Ronnie instantly agreed and the trio was formed. The three went to the drawing board and began to sketch out their plans for 2013. Now they are all working in the studio on a new EP consisting of new versions of older SG songs and new material. They also plan to release their debut studio album in 2013 featuring all brand new material.
Shaded Grace is now a whirlwind of their favorite music consisting of: Rock, Hip-Hop, Electro, Metal, Reggae, Funk, and more! Be on the lookout for their new EP, and the debut studio album coming in 2013! Time to GET SHADED!
