Shock Of Pleasure

The Shock of Pleasure originally formed in 2004. The group was created by singer/songwriter Robert Romano of Dallas' Stranger than Fiction along with veteran drummer Brent Irish and bassist Shelley Gaither (who was replaced this year by Josh Curry).

In 2005 the group was joined by Kelley Christian as featured vocalist. In addition to being a classically trained singer, Kelley is also a model and actress in the DFW Area and Los Angeles. Her angelic voice has brought the Shock of Pleasure to the forefront of the Dallas music scene.

The Shock combines trip-hop and down-tempo grooves to create this eclectic mix of textures and sound. This is Electro-Lounge Music - a soundtrack to life in the city.

SOP have just completed their debut CD, 'It's About Time,' with producer David Castell (Blue October, Burden Brothers, Pallor). The first single, 'This is a Test' has been featured on the ABC Family Channel's 'Wildfire' and has garnered regular spins on Commercial Radio Specialty Shows across the country, most notably 102.1 KDGE (Dallas). The CD reached 12 on the CMJ (national college radio chart) in February 2008.

On September 16th 2008, 'It's About Time' will be released nationally via the Universal Music Group's Fontana Label.
