Formed in early 2010 the Shackle create a rustic old time sound that conjures up imagery of Mississippi steam boats, seedy show girls and bar room brawls.

Their sound draws influences from Bluegrass, Folk, Celtic and Old time Blues; throwing together guitar, fiddle, banjo, bass, drums and percussion to give the natural ingredients for their contemporary folk music.

High energy live performances and boundless enthusiasm make sure you'll leave exhausted with their tunes swimming around your head for days after.

The Shackle were signed by Kissan Productions early in 2010 and have been recording at Acapela Studios ever since. The boys have been creating quite a stir on the Welsh music scene with the release of their debut EP 'Hounds of Justice' which is a taster for the release of their first album, expected with growing anticipation in January 2012.
