Little Stranger

Born and raised in Philly and crash-landed in Charleston, John and Kevin Shields are

the minds behind the quirky indie hip-hop group Little Stranger. Performing as a duo,

Little Stranger is a fresh hybrid of John’s singer-songwriter magnetism and Kevin’s

hard hitting, in-your-face delivery. Stylistically reminiscent of Gorillaz and Twenty One

Pilots, Little Stranger inhabits a relatively unexplored niche at this point in time.

They’re all about originality, every song is a separate work unto itself with all the

strangeness that their name implies.

John and Kevin Shields bring years of experience to the table. With previous bands,

they’ve played with names like Slightly Stoopid, Del the Funky Homosapien, Grace

Potter, Papadosio, The Heavy Pets, and John Brown’s Body. Little Stranger was

quickly recognized at home, named “Hip-Hop Act of the Year” in the 2016 & 2017

Charleston City Paper Music Awards and listed jointly as one of “17 People to Watch

in 2017” in the Charleston Indie blog, Out of the Wood- work. They’ve toured up and

down the East and West Coasts and recently released a string of eclectic music videos

to their fans. With an ever-increasing arsenal of new tunes, Little Stranger is poised

and making 2018 a big year.
