The members of electro-pop trio SHAED are so tight-knit, you might confuse them for triplets. And actually, you’d be close: twin brothers Spencer and Max Ernst (age 27) met their best friend and the group’s lead singer Chelsea Lee (age 26) in high school. Back then, Lee, who’s small in stature but boasts a mighty voice, was making her own music. She’d heard about a band the Ernsts were in, and went to see them play. They’ve been inseparable ever since. Now signed to the Photo Finish label and based in DC area, the have been impressing listeners with their soulful sound. They recently played the Billboard Hot 100 festival, and just finished a US tour with Marian Hill. They’re currently working on their first album. They hit their Vevo dscvr session with string trio that brought out the drama of "Lonesome" and made Chelsea's incredible voice that much more pronounced.
