Join Jodie Schell from The Shakers and ON THE ROAD TO ROCK’s David Trejo as they cozy up to CANTER’S DELI’S booth #30 and chat influences, plans for 2013, the worst show of Jodie’s life, Ann Wilson, and more…
"And who is the spider? That would be the ranting metal sounds of Chris Lee on guitar and Nick Woods on drums. They are hard hitting anger drowned by insanity to form a suicidal release. It has a lethal pulse that contrasts yet compliments the vocal life of Schell. This new single from The Shakers is an enthralled mix of soul pop pierced with metal shrapnel."
"Two of The Sunset Strip's sexiest and most ferocious female rockers—Jodie Schell (frontwoman for The Shakers), and Candice Levinson (guitarist for Warner Drive).....recently took a break from grueling rehearsal schedules to do a little window shopping at The Sunset Strip's home furnishings flagship, Diva Rocker Glam, and interview each other, swapping stories and comparing notes on what it means to 'play like a girl.' "
"One of the shining jewels in the tiara of L.A.’s great music scene—The Shakers will take the stage and take no prisoners... ..think Motown vocal sensibilities, meets high energy classic rock; a pairing that has been drawing huge crowds, and plenty of word of mouth praise on The Sunset Strip, and beyond." .
"Jodie sees herself in it as a “shaker,” and a “breaker,” and after couple songs into the album, it’s pretty clear she isn’t kidding. ...The riffs are deadly, and that is expected for The Shakers’ fans, but if you are new to the band, welcome to our church."
“…She coos seductively like Gwen Stefani at one moment and wails like Robert Plant the next, all while Lee’s guitar dances and duets with her. Underneath is the rhythmic rumble of the Barker/Woods machine, often barreling forward like a bullet train.”
This next band is like a super juicy piece of gossip that you know you probably shouldnt share but you cant help it. ....They are too badass NOT to talk about. They are an LA/Philly based band called The Shakers. Their name is not only cute or clever, it literally describes what you will do when you hear their music. People literally leave their shows saying their catch phrase, I love The Shakers!.
"Then I heard her. The moment Jodie began to sing I had a Waynes World moment. I thought of the scene in the movie where Wayne Campbell sees his future girlfriend Cassandra performing for the first time ..."
"The Shakers, easily the hardest working band in L.A., have a new EP out and a new video. I love this band. I love the people in this band and I love seeing a band who can kick your ass night after night after night."
"We called The Shakers gregarious lead singer Jodie and got her to talk about her pink hair, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, her musical influences and The Shakers upcoming show at WMMR's Gobblaroo on Wednesday, November 24 at the TLA."
