Following the success of his last single, 'Keep Holding On', Matthew Shad has teamed up with Grammy Award winning Producer/Engineer Bob St. John.

Best known for his work with Extreme, Collective Soul & Duran Duran, St. John has also been behind the mixing console for Sir Elton John, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Journey's Steve Perry.

Shad & St. John hit the studio this past summer to begin recording songs for a new SHAD album featuring Extreme's Kevin Figueiredo on drums. Completing the quartet is bassist Ryan Bruder and guitarist Saxon Kennedy.

'Matthew is a brilliant artist and I am SO looking forward to working on this project with him and being a part of his lifelong dream. These are amazing melodic rock songs... timelless and unforgettable. Great things will be coming from us soon!' - Bob St. John
