Shot Silk, from Charlotte, NC was completely formed in March 2011. a good year starting out on the scene and thriving as things change and grow, fly away and return. we know it's all about rocking with the waves and we are united and ever ready to rock.
our sound is a little dark, a little quirky, full of heart and distinctly like no other. tricky twists and turns, a bit off the beaten path. we speak to you from a place of physical, mental and spiritual insight. bringing body, art and soul complete. we are certain to create anomalies that captivate the keen.
Katie Dunn: vox
katie is a fire cracker. she is pure energy full heart on her sleeve. this girl knows how to get down and dirty. the cunning and wise, wild child, woman of your dreams. she owns the stage, though both katie and i are the story tellers, katie has the voice to convey these conceptual realities. she feels everything she sings. and you can see the music penetrates deeply. passionate, wide open, with a saucy sweet and spicy melody and a gorgeous full lipped scream.
Mindy Barker: drums
mindy is a sweetie. witty and peaceful, a fount of pleasant presence. she's really smart and would do anything for the sake of joy and the joy of RAWK! mindy and i started playing together first to just get our feet wet and have fun. mindy makes me think of swirling bubbles and beats. her timing and mine really synch up and yet we would both tell you we are a little bit off. she plays her drum kit barefoot wears her thoughts on her sleeve and seems as if to have her head in some very brilliant clouds. sometimes i think she came from another place. or time. where pure awesomeness is what creates the cosmos. she and i share some sonic tones that lead us to the next space where rhythm plays the tide with give and take.
elf is so weird. silly and genuine, a person i became fast friends with. he is a true artist, a good human being, and the perfect man for my girl band. he has an appreciation for the odd, an affinity for the strange and loves potato chips. this guy has a child's big heart and carries a warm bright light though it may seem surrounded in dark. he's got some funk in his trunk, chunky but spry and easy to create with. our styles are complimentary although our backgrounds are distinctively different. neither one of us take our selves too seriously but have serious passion about making music. elf brings out the giggle in everyone and will happily throw you off by saying something inappropriate. he walks to a buoyant tune off the beaten tangent and knowing him lets you into a wild world filled with wonder, laughter and rock-n-roll.
Hayley Lakeman: guitar
so, i have some odd timing. it works so well with the slight slant my other musicians bring to the table. i like the low end. i wrap my rhythms in the blues but keep the fire hot and heavy. i like a changing groove and i like it a little dirty. i like twists and turns to keep you on your toes. i am a writer of the jam and also a wordsmith, having my hand in the lyrics as well. crafting the content of these songs through the spirit. attuned to intention, dimension and the intricate nature of creation. this project is primarily my baby and i just adore it!
