I'm proud to make this my first post here.
Shad is a rapper and guitar player (and possibly singer if I think the singer in one of his songs is indeed him) from Canada. Pretty much, the short of it is that this guy fucking rocks. This one song in particular sends shivers down my spine. On top of being an amazing musician, I had the pleasure of meeting him at a Macklemore concert in Boston, and he is a super friendly guy. So definitely give this guy a listen.
Here is a link to him preforming this song, just to show you that he sounds amazing live.
