Punching America in the face with Rock and Roll!!

You guys now know us, the Shields Brothers, from our adventure with Cee Lo Green on NBC’s The Voice Season 2. We brought true Rock & Roll to prime time TV. The massive outpouring of support and new fans got us trending worldwide on Twitter, written up in Rolling Stone magazine and all the major entertainment outlets and high praise from Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and, of course, our coach Cee Lo Green. Now we need YOUR help to start our next big adventure. We want to record our first full length album! We’ve got some great songs and a great mentor/producer in Pete Evick (Bret Michaels’ music producer and guitarist, Paramore, Miley Cyrus, All Time Low, etc.). Let’s punch America in the face with Rock & Roll!

Donate what you can. We appreciate anything you can do to help us! Thank you!
