Songs of Shipwreck has been playing its brand of punk-infused rock for almost three years now. Driving guitar and rock-solid rhythms set the pace, while piano and organ melodies provide nuances of early 1990’s anthem rock à la Journey and Europe. Sean Mahoney, guitarist and vocalist, is accompanied by Kent Paulsen on guitar and vocals, Steve Karels on bass, Dave Clark on drums and Matt Sjelin on keyboard and vocals. While they don’t shy away from breaking into Green Day, Gordon Lightfoot or Dr. Dre covers, the primary focus is on playing originals from their debut album, Fortune Favors the Brave, which was released in September. A follow-up album is already in the works.
