The Galahad Blues

There is a storyline to be found within The Galahad Blues that makes this part concept album, part fantasy, and, most of all, a fascinating collection embroidered with richly detailed micro dramas.

Here Shad reimagines the Knights of the Round Table recast as gangsters, King Arthur’s Camelot as a 1940's Chicago nightclub, and rather than focusing on gallantry and chivalry, Shad explores the potential of finding honor among thieves.
