How do you best describe the music made by someone referred to by others as "The Villain King of New Jersey's noir-pop scene" or "The Pied Piper of the Garden State"? However you describe it, you wouldn't be doing it justice, that's for sure. If it were a recipe for a musical cake, you'd perhaps need the following ingredients:

- A leaky bucket of Tom Waits styled romping and lyrical storytelling
- A pint of Muse's Matt Bellamy's wails
- A circus clown's car worth of chaos
- Rinse through an old theater's red curtain...twice

Shayfer is a master storyteller and is able to adopt characters and roles that range from the somber to the twisted, from the glorious to the pure evil. There is so much life in his pieces and each and every aspect of each and every song is crafted with care to truly squeeze out every once of musty, beer stained, heartbreaking, philosophical drop. His music is a journey into the dark side and back again...and you'll love every minute once you acclimatize!

His music is available through bandcamp.com - The Band Campaign continues...
