Shad Returns To New York City

Shad ( is quickly becoming one of Canada’s most respected young artists.
His sophomore record, The Old Prince, was received with top reviews by music critics
across the board, snagging a Juno nomination for Best Rap Recording of the Year and
securing a spot on the coveted Polaris Music Prize short-list. Shad will return to New
York on Wednesday November 4, 2009 to rock a show at Pianos (158 Ludlow).

Completing three national tours in 2008 and performing in 46 cities this summer on the
2009 VANS Warped Tour, Shad has over 200 live shows under his belt and looks most
comfortable when he’s in front of an audience. From the Hillside Music Festival to
Warped Tour to opening for Common and Lupe Fiasco, Shad is able to connect with
music lovers of almost any genre through his remarkable live show.

Shad broke ground with his 2005 independent debut When This is Over, earning praise for
its honest and clever lyrics and its distinct musical aesthetic. His sophomore release, The
Old Prince became an Internet hot-potato, received 10/10 on, and
equal comparisons to Kanye West and Common on

Shad’s skillful wordplay and smooth flow on The Old Prince, combined with his engaging
live shows, and four outstanding music videos (The Old Prince Still Lives at Home became
YouTube’s #1 featured video World Wide) have allowed Shad to develop tribes of
devout fans right across the globe.

With two slow-roasting classics under his belt, Shad continues to walk the humble path. He
appreciates the chance to make and share his thoughts through music.
