Shiver Canyon is an electronic project fronted by Melbourne-based vocalist/composer Roni Shewan. Compared to a diverse range of musicians including Kate Bush, Radiohead and Scott Walker, her original compositions blend trip-hop, ambient, dream-pop, rock, and jazz; with thought provoking lyrical content exploring history, femininity, desire, mental illness and the avant-garde.
Aided by Roni’s powerful, jazz infused vocals and live visuals, Shiver Canyon has impressed audiences with a dynamic and enthralling live show. She has shared the stage with some of the country’s finest performers, including Aluka, Whitaker, Mijo Biscan, Mushroom Giant and Closure in Moscow.
2017 see’s the launch of Shiver Canyon’s debut EP. Co-produced by Red Black (A State of Flux, Sleep Parade) and Roni Shewan, the recording is an ambitious blend of acoustic and electronic elements, with subtle instrumentation, East-Asian percussion and sophisticated vocal layering. The release also features the talents of local musicians David O’Brien, Benjamin Dalton, Matthew Delaney, Daniel O’Keefe, Matthew Reid and David Robinson.
“Cinematic, evocative and ethereal, Shiver Canyon’s music dances around genre and expectation with surprising virtuosity.” Happy Mag
