Sharpless returns with shows at Shea Stadium (09.30) and Baby's (10.06)

Sharpless returns with shows at Shea Stadium (09.30) and Baby's (10.06)

We covered pop rock duo Sharpless in this blog in 2014, during the CMJ Music Marathon, after the release of the band's debut album 'The One I Wanted to Be.' Comprised of Jack Greenleaf and Montana Levy, the band at the time was based in Chicago. Two years later, we find them back in Jack's native NYC, involved in the community of artists called The Epoch. Even though they have no new releases under their belt, they have been gigging regularly in 2016. Their electronic power pop's epic sound is intentionally derailed by Greenleaf's entertainingly zany inclinations, found both in the vocal and production department. Single 'Greater Than (>)' (streaming below) finds the perfect balance between anthemic power, eccentric production and vocal incisivity. You can catch them live at Shea Stadium on September 30 and at Baby's All Right on October 10.
