The Shades are a trio of Chicago's top singer-songwriters: NBC The Voice's Andrew DeMuro, & brothers Phil & Mark Jacobson. Equipped primarily with their voices and acoustic guitars, The Shades possess a signature sound that encompasses elements of popular music from folk & rock, to soul & R&B. Impressive arrangements and tight harmonies are the hallmarks of The Shades’ original music, and critics across generations have taken notice. In 2015, their original song, ‘Take You Home,’ was featured in American Songwriter Magazine as a ‘Daily Discovery,’ and was chosen as a finalist in NewSong Music’s International Songwriting Competition. The group received further honors in 2016 when Andrew was selected as a member of Adam Levine's team on Season 11 of NBC's The Voice. Having graced a variety of Chicago’s stages, including House of Blues, Evanston SPACE, Mayne Stage & Navy Pier, The Shades have spent much of 2016 in the recording studio working on an upcoming EP release.
