Shadows of the Cloud (Shadows for short) is a Los Angeles based alternative / progressive rock band made up of four experienced musicians who come from all over the country. Shadows fuses influences from various rock, metal, progressive, experimental, and even classical genres to create original music; however, they are known to sneak in a cover or two at a show. Shadows began in 2010 as a side project for guitarist and lead vocalist, Tom Pena, who at the time was in another band as lead guitarist. In deciding to leave his previous band due to creative differences, Tom decided to put all creative efforts towards Shadows and in doing so found himself working with various different musicians over the years including current member Lucas Ellington (Drums & Percussion) and releasing an EP titled “Mixed Signals” in 2013. After undergoing a change in members, Tom and Lucas met Dylan Neuens (Guitar and Keys) in 2016, and Max Cary (Bass & Backup Vocals) in 2018 through various avenues. Since then, the four have been working on revitalizing Shadows by putting their various influences together to not only rework the songs already written but to create what will become a new direction and sound for the band.

Shadows of the Cloud is currently in the studio writing and tracking new releases for 2019 as well as preparing for Sound The Groove’s “Sunday Funday Bash” at The Study in Hollywood, CA on January 20, 2019.
