SHAKESPEARE AND THE BIBLE is a six-piece band based in Hamburg, Germany, playing
original music written by the Welsh singer/songewriter Owen P. Jones. The style is eclectic, ranging
from joyful punk romps and angry protest chants to folk-tinged ballads, with elements of country and soulmusic thrown into the mix.
This is independent music in the truest sense – hand-crafted and heartfelt.

Please Keep To The Left – 2018

So here it is – finally. As ever, with SATB, the music eludes pigeon-holing. That’s not something we’re ashamed of; on the contrary, it’s an essental part of what this band is all about. In general terms, though, the album can be divided into three parts: the pop-rock / folk-tinged songs of the opening section; the darker, more introverted mood of the middle part; and finally, the somewhat anarchic, prog-rock flavour of the Himalayan landscape in the finale. We had a great time making it, and we hope you have a great time listening to it…

Ladies and Gentlemen: we offer you ‘Please Keep To The Left’.

Available as CD or download on Plattenbau, from Broken Silence ( ),
