The next few years were spent crafting their songs and developing an identity that is truly theirs and theirs alone. The genres of music that inspire Upshot run across the board and it's clearly evident in their music. After a few years of the ever-so-predictable up's and down's, personnel changes, and several cross-country relocations, Upshot settled down back in the Midwest to record their debut album, City Noise, in March of 2011. An eclectic mix from the genre-defying band, City Noise illustrates what Upshot is all about.
Socially conscious lyrics combined with elements of rock, blues, reggae, funk, hip-hop, and many other styles to give you a truly remarkable experience. Upshot is Sara Hall (Vocals/Guitar), Matt Zimmerman (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Jared Manker (Bass/Guitar) and Derek England (Drums/Beats/Vocals). Read more on Last.fm.
