Joining forces from the ashes of former metal and rock bands, Keith and Steff Caffrey unite to form alt-rock/acoustic two-piece Shock Sorrow. Their distinctive signature of impassioned vocals balanced with poignant guitars has earned them their reputation as emotive songwriters in Ireland’s acoustic rock scene.
The group’s debut EP The Heart Bleeds demonstrates Keith’s honest and profound lyrics, which reflect on love, loss, and grief, while Steff’s blend of acoustic and electric guitars creates a rich and textured auditory atmosphere. Recorded, mixed, and co-produced by the duo in Steff’s Oirialla Production Suite, the EP is inspired by and dedicated to the memory of Aoife, Keith’s soul mate. It is a brooding and haunting journey through profound grief. Mastered by Siegfried Meier at Beach Road Mastering, Ontario, Canada where it stands proudly in the company of bands such as Kittie and Woods Of Ypres.
Armed with their powerful EP, dual guitars, and years of collective experience Shock Sorrow is now ready to bring their sound to live audiences.
