The Tweed ✪ / Bio

The Tweed is a Moscow / LA rock duo. The band was formed in 2009 by lead singer and guitarist Greg Pekk and drummer Matt Shepard, and was initially intended as a quintet. However, after a long hard search and some member changes The Tweed became a duo in May 2014.

By the summer of 2015 the musicians had accumulated tons of musical material, and The Tweed began to bring it to life. In April 2016, the band released their first single - “Someone I Know”, which quickly received airtime on plenty of radio stations around the world (US, UK, EU, including major KLOS 95.5 and Cambridge University Radio) and scored 77% of “Market Potential” on SoundOut (professional music platform).

In September 2016 The Tweed became a winner in the Unsigned Only 2016 competition. The band has been selected among over 6000 entries from over 100 countries by the judicial committee including The Killers and The Struts.

The Tweed songs garnered the attention of several media including Niji Magazine and was highly rated by such industry professionals and musicians as Rick Krim of Sony Music, Don Griffin of Village Studios, Haydn Bendall of Abbey Road Studios and guitar monsters Steve Stevens and Pete Thorn and more.

At the moment two band members are responsible for all phases of song creation (songwriting, arrangement, recording and mixing, production, release, promotion, etc.). So, The Tweed are constantly looking for a Team/Record Label ready to be involved in the creation of wonderful music.
