Formerly a DIY venue in Bethlehem, Shards lives on as a recording studio, occasional practice space, and home to Tape Swap Radio's Shards Sessions. Each session features a four-song performance and interview. To capture the energy and feel of a live show, sessions are recorded live in front of a small studio audience. These sessions are then aired on our syndicated radio program. Our goal with each Shards Session is to provide a unique live snapshot of bands that call the Lehigh Valley home as well as the bands passing through on tours. The audio and video of our sessions are archived here on this page, so dig in and explore the Lehigh Valley's DIY music scene.
Philadelphia four-piece experimental glam rock band Cerulean Blue don masks and rarely talk to the audience when they perform. This visual should be the first clue that you're going to be hearing something unexpected--or at least, outside of the norm in the Philadelphia music scene. Formed by guitarist, singer, and songwriting Kevin Brusha, Cerulean Blue (ex-Walking Distance) imbues his music with his love of bands and artists like the Beach Boys, Big Star, T. Rex, and David Bowie.
