ABOUT THE BAND A modern, blues infused, groove laden, hook filled melodic rock band that comes from the streets of Los Angeles and New Orleans bringing you songs of salvation to soothe the soul!
Our debut album, SUGARBOWL, was mixed by the certified multi-platinum and Grammy Award winning, Sylvia Massy. (Grammy: Johnny Cash) Shadow and The Thrill’s future is largely dictated by the past of the two men behind the band.
Tony, as a Grammy nominated (Great White), certified multi-platinum Billboard charting writer and musician, and Brentt, as a tireless and sought-after touring and session drummer and producer, have created an album experience that rivals their iconic rock and pop influences.
SUGARBOWL is a diverse mix of songs, which thematically tell a set of stories, which are universally recognizable. The lyrics reveal the trials and struggles every relationship endures as it crumbles. The heartache, the anguish, and the determination to move forward are captured song after song through the incredibly versatile lead vocals and masterful guitar work of Tony Cardenas-Montana, accompanied by soulful sounds of Brentt James Arcement's B3 playing and slinky, sensual drum grooves.

A FABULOUS PODCAST with an Interview with Tony Montana! Listen HERE ... Focus On Metal: Episode 420 I had a series of songs that I really felt that needed to be recorded correctly with the best drummer I knew ... that would be Brentt Arcement. So, I decided to go to New Orleans to work with him and do everything. It went well, and we needed a name for the project, so my partner and manager, Pete Merluzzi, suggested combining some different elements for the name, and that's where Shadow & The Thrill comes from. I am The Shadow (the shadow), and Brentt is The Thrill (the emotion)! ... LEXEL Media
