Shybaby

Shybaby are four friends with more experience than they may care to admit, who love great rock songs and have heaps of fun sharing it around.

Lead vocalist Shiney cut her teeth on seminal Sydney rock bands such as the Modern Primitives but found enlightenment (and much more) in Byron Bay.

Guitarist Mick is also a product of the Sydney rock scene and a guitar-blaster of the highest order.

Drummer Mel comes from Toowoomba by way of Newcastle, but that could just as easily read The Palladium by way of Detroit. Hitting harder than most and channelling the spirit of John Bonham, Mel locks, loads and delivers, on time, every time. She is loved!

Bass player Greg combines with Mel to make a rhythm section that just keeps on giving. With a pedigree including the Vinyl Dolls and Shake Appeal alt-country act Thujone, Greggy is the quiet one of the band, laying down with no frills but attitude simmering under the surface.

If you like rock and roll and good times, you’ve found the right band.

See Shybaby at the Billinudgel Hotel New Years Eve.
