Shaggwell / Bio

This down and dirty band is on the pursuit to sweep Chicago off its feet. Comprised of Columbia College students Rudy Bless, Ben Dacoba, Mich Shirey and Corbin Howard this band pleases the soulful ear with Funk and R&B sounds like that of John Mayer, Stevie Wonder and Prince. Their inspiration comes from other eclectic sounds from Motown and The Funk Brothers. Lyrically, they romanticize the ideals and battles between love, sex and everyday life. Making comical sense of the world’s political matter is also something you will find in their most recent work. Shaggwell is, by nature, pushing the boundaries on mixing all styles and genres of music and not being contained by any one. Shaggwell's main goal is to create a groove that is purely infectious and informs and inspires the lyrics in which they are sung. In the midst of all the music being put out in the world, Shaggwell stands to make their corky romantic mark in an ever-changing industry.
