Bastard Poetry / Press

"Shenton's gravelly voice barks out stories of drinking too much and falling in and out of love that make each moment seem as important as anything Tennyson wrote about..."

"Acoustic trio reach top spot on local ReverbNation Alternative charts. Saskatoon’s Bastard Poetry, an acoustic/rock trio, are doing pretty well for themselves..... Aside from the classic tried-and-true lyrics about drinking too much, Bastard Poetry veer between acoustic folk punk howling and fuzzy rock jams. With the songs on their ReverbNation page being labeled as ‘demos’, the band has designs on releasing a full-length album in the very-near future. "
