The brain child of singer/ guitarist Lance Shepherd, Super Electric was born into this world mid 2017 following Shepherds return to Wellington, New Zealand after several years working in the UK and Europe with Martina Topley-Bird (Tricky) “I wanted to put a dream project together – playing the kind of music I’ve always loved, with the players I wanted, then getting it out to live audiences.” says Shepherd.
The addition of guitarist Ben Fulton (ex AHORIBUZZ, Jan Hellriegel), Drummer Steve Bremner (The Adults, Rhian Sheehan) and bass player Kyle Mosley (ex Jacky Tar, Subduction) completed the picture.
What started as a solo vision swiftly became a group project, collectively sharing writing and arranging duties.
“It’s about finding a “perfect storm” “ says guitarist Ben Fulton “The perfect balance of shared vision, aesthetic and attitude – and it’s like we’ve hit the jackpot with this group. When you have that sort of synergy and commitment it means two things – amazing rock music and incredible live shows!”
The band is currently recording their debut album which is set for release on vinyl in Feb 2019
