Drawing straining sounds within alternative pop/rock style, Shun offers flaming compositions influenced by pure rock & roll. Founding in 1997 and comprising a five-member crew headed by vocalist Billy White, along with David Crutcher (guitar), Cris Hawkins (guitar), Richie Glover (bass), and Jac Glenn (drums), Shun portrays the quest for cogent elements of rock's unconventional choices. In 1998, the Nashville-born band edited their first disc, a demo containing most of the their themes at the time. Their unequaled creations set up the way for them to be playing with crews such as Stuck Mojo or Nothingface, gaining considerable airplay on local radio stations, and gathering a considerable following. The EP Michael in Reign was released in 2001.
