Shy Mascot are a Dublin based quintet that combines funk, jazz, and hip-hop styles to create a uniquely provocative sound.
Drawing influence from artists such as The Fugees, Weather Report, and Lianne LaHavas Shy Mascot’s music lives in a realm where complex jazz harmony, free flowing melody and interlocking grooves meet. Varying between boisterous, fast-paced songs to minimalist, spaced-out jams, the band has performed at a range of venues around Ireland. From the intimate setting of the curated sofa sessions in Kilkenny to the rowdy, rain-soaked grounds of Knockanstockan, Shy Mascot are notorious for their ability to impress audiences in any setting.
The rhythm section, led by Keith Tobin, act as a dynamic improvisational trio, and lay the perfect foundation for both Jamel’s fast-paced, hypnotic rhymes, and Fiadh Rua Gregg’s soulful vocals. The end result is an versatile quintet that weaves between melodious, ethereal spaces, and deep, filthy grooves. 4 LIGHTS is out digitally May 13th
"(Jamel) Franklin confounds the MC stereo-type - bashful rather than boastful -but that just makes this elision of rap and electric jazz all the more engaging." - Cormac Larkin, The Irish Times
"A melding of rap and jazz that combines the murky, spare grooves of Wu-Tang Clan with the invention and harmony of fusion." - All About Jazz
