23 Shades is the newest project from acclaimed singer-songwriter Aaron Cuadra. The band’s honest and personal brand of rock ‘n’ roll boasts spacey ambiance, meaningful lyrics and memorable hooks imbued with a radio-ready edge. Cuadra’s refreshing originality is a rare find in an industry full of copycats and knockoffs of the “next big thing.” 23 Shades defies the temptation to follow suit or worry about what’s hip and new, while remaining catchy and accessible.
A former graduate of Bear River High School, Cuadra’s credentials are impressive, including honors such as Los Angeles Music Awards “Best Male Vocalist” award, second place at the Hard Rock Café Battle of the Bands, and semi-finalist placement in the International Songwriting Competition. Cuadra also boasts placement of his music on the popular TV series “Party of Five,” and has previously shared the stage with industry greats such as Train, Five For Fighting, Jason Mraz, Floater.
