After crafting eleven tracks Reminiscent of Hole, Garbage, Elastica, L7, and Green Day, and bringing on Roger Travassos (drums) and Mark McIntyre (bass), the album was recorded at several studios across Ontario. The result is grinding riffs, melodic and catchy vocals, grungy rhythms, and some tasty guitar solos. Thematically, Maverick is about Shafey’s personal experiences over the past three years culminating into a full-length album. A fast paced journey into the behind the scenes of her life from the multilayered opening track “Swim” to the quiet lullaby of the last song “The Infinite Possibility of Sea Feet”, Maverick is story unfolding. Shafey is clearly comfortable singing in this genre, “it was a natural transition for me to get into this.
The only barrier that was stopping me in the past was not being able to play the guitar. I rented some ‘how to’ dvds for guitar and got to a point where I could create template tracks to pass onto Donna to make better”. Look out for the video for the album single “Paranoia” to be released in February 2013 and the full album to be released in May 2013.
