Shining is a Norwegian band that started out as an acoustic jazz quartet in 1999. Their sound has since become more experimental and extreme, incorporating elements from metal and progressive rock as well as 19th and 20th century classical music.[6]

Stuck Underwater

In 2005 a group of Chicago-area musicians came together to talk about music. They talked about thrash and soul, punk and funk, hardcore and jazz. Not content with playing the same old heavy music they threw together all that noise into the sonic explosion that is STUCK UNDERWATER – music made with no rules at all.
After toiling on stages in the Chicagoland area (Double Door, Beat Kitchen, Logan Square Auditorium, Mutiny, Abbey Pub, etc.) as well as road shows throughout the Midwest (opening for The End recording artist Tub Ring), STUCK UNDERWATER has seen their fan-base growing with each high energy live show. No stage, no line-up, and no crowds have been too far out of reach for the band to connect with. The 2008 release of the band's first full-length album, No Script To Follow, unleashed their diverse sound on new ears. No Script To Follow, produced by Christopher Wolff (Chapter Seven, Trials, Drawing A Blank), pummels listeners with the thrash of "Mr. Skeptical," the eclectic sounds of "Red And Left Behind," and the fun groves of "Licky Lollygagging University" and "My Great Obsessions." No Script To Follow combines intelligent lyrics with heavy blasts of aggression, smooth groves, and instrumentation not normally associated with heavy music.
The 2009 addition of drummer Jim Svoboda to the already solid line-up of Chris Shern (lead vocal, trumpet, harmonica, percussion), Chris Teter (bass, backing vocal, percussion), and John A Beavers (guitar, backing vocal, percussion) has further enhanced the already diverse sound STUCK UNDERWATER has to offer. Future plans for STUCK UNDERWATER include further touring in the Midwest as well as the development of a second album that will crush the rules even further.
