Be wary of your shadow.
It was from that sentence that Shadowary got its name. It means that everyone has light and dark sides – our choices determine who we are.
Formed by Benny Ng and based in Sydney, Australia, Shadowary makes rock music that is infused with electronic and acoustic sounds. Well-crafted lyrics set to catchy melodies on a backdrop of interwoven sounds – Benny’s soaring and gritty vocals inject raw passion into the songs.
Benny wrote and produced four songs that would form the debut EP of Shadowary. Citing Linkin Park, Trifonic and Disturbed as his influences, Benny wrote the songs based on his life experiences.
When Chester Bennington (from Linkin Park) passed away, Benny was devastated.
Ever since hearing “Points of Authority” on the radio when he was 13, Benny knew he wanted to write songs to inspire others.
“Writing and singing songs is how I deal with my emotions. Music gave me an outlet for my frustration and anger. I want to do the same for others. I want people to be inspired by our music and know that they’re not alone,” Benny said.
After penning “All Alone” and posting the home-recorded demo onto SoundCloud, Shadowary was discovered by renowned Sydney producer, Leon Berger (Hit Music Producers Inc). Impressed by what he heard, Leon offered to produce a 4-track EP for Shadowary.
Three of the tracks have already been completed.
In order to fast track the completion of the EP and to shoot a music video, a crowdfunding campaign was launched to raise $5,000 for the EP, music video and the marketing campaign that follows. Go here to contribute and be rewarded.
What is in store for the future?
According to Benny, when the crowdfunding campaign is completed, the process of member recruitment will begin. The band will have a full lineup. Their debut EP will be released, along with their debut music video.
Judging by the ‘sound’ of things, the future is bright indeed for Shadowary.
