Since their inception in 2016, Shak & The Baits has seen their following in Singapore grow steadily. The band is led by Shak’thiya (or Shak), a Singer-songwriter who chronicles his life and struggles through self-penned lyrics and crafty melodies. Inspired by Soul, Blues, Motown and Hip Hop; Shak’s only real aim is to connect with the everyday people and their daily existence.
Shak & The Baits has performed on both local and international stages like Fringe Manila (2018), Singapore Night Festivals (2016, 2017) and Singapore Writers Festival (2017). A regular at the Esplanade stages; the band had been invited to play Countdown 2018 at The Promontory last year with Shak also being one of the featured artists in the 2018 National Day theme song “We Are Singapore”.
Shak & The Baits are currently sitting on their 5 track debut EP entitled “Sitting At Home”. They are also not fond of being spoken of in the third person.
