ShortWave RadioBand started in 2018 as an acoustic duo with Lonny Eaton and Andy Scullin. After 2 years of doing that, they decided to add drummer John Woods. They played cover songs as a power-trio for a year, before deciding to write original songs.
They released “Don’t Care” in October of 2021, which received considerable attention from local radio stations as well as multiple streaming stations in the UK, cracking the Top 20 countdown for 3 weeks on Prospect Radio. Their next single “SomeDay” did even better. This time it received dozens of plays on WEXT and WEQX and made it to number 5 on the UK’s Prospect Radio, They quickly realized that to replicate the full sound of their singles, they needed a couple more members.
So they added Abby Stone on trumpet and Ryan Shaw on rhythm guitar and thus ShortWave RadioBand were complete. They played extensively around the 518 for all of 2022. They were in the final four of Nippertowns March Music Madness and for that they got to play the WAMC Performing Arts Studio: The Linda. They recorded a live EP at Jive Hive Live that they released in July, with an accompanying video. They work tirelessly to put on the best show that they can. Whether it is a ShortWave show, or they are a supporting act, you can guarantee that they will be giving it their all!
