Mick Shedd

Mick is a well known musician from both the local and national scene. He plays bass as well as delivering a very recognisable lead vocal. He is an immensely powerful and expressive vocalist, at home bringing his approach to most forms of material including rock, blues and soul/funk. As he puts it he loves to sort out the “stops, starts, farts and barks” in the music, a task he is eminently suited for, as he has a very famous set of tonsils on him.

He has performed extensively in the South Yorkshire region in such bands as Shedd's on Fire, Shedds the follow up band to that and in the past Equinox and Fixer.  The latter band also worked in Europe. Pete and Mick had a short sojourn with the Jazz Rock Fusion band, ToshRollo back in the late '80's and renewed their musical partnership in the formation of ChinWig before kicking off the jam-band line-up of Pig’n’aif. ChinWig’s debut album ‘Be Upstanding’ featured Mick’s inimitable vocal stylings to great effect.

Mick works with the Pig’n’aif family as a session  vocalist and sometime songwriting  partner to Pete. You can also hear his vocal output on ‘The Jester... Thinks...’  and the ‘Musicalis Grumpiosa’ albums. Mick has also been helping Pete with completing the soon to be released Phoenix Rising album ‘After The Fire

For bass performances Mick uses Trace Elliot, Crate, Boss equipment with his customised Fender Bass.  Live he uses Shure microphones for his vocals.
