The quartet known as SHADOWRAPTR has made a great name for itself. Granted, it’s an inexplicable-yet-wonderful kind of name. Heck, that could also be said about their music, too.
SHADOWRAPTR, as a whole, raises a lot of questions. How would the members describe their music? Is there any logical method to the group’s songwriting? From whence did the band’s name come? And why is it spelled incorrectly?
For fans of the Cincinnati band, these unanswered questions are of great importance as a growing audience tries to make sense of SHADOWRAPTR’s newest album, aptly titled Love a Good Mystery.
Winning “New Artist of the Year” at the 2011 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, the group earned early acclaim for its musical efforts, which is not surprising to anyone that’s heard their previous albums or seen the group perform live.
SHADOWRAPTR plays a free show at MOTR Pub 10 p.m. Friday with The Frankl Project. motrpub.com.
