Biography[edit]

The Bridge[edit]

Shaye's debut album The Bridge (produced by Bill Bell and Jay Joyce) was released in 2003 on EMI Canada. The album features songs by Ron Hynes, Sinéad Lohan and Crash Vegas. Support for the album included shows in Canada and Japan. "Happy Baby", the lead single, was nominated for Single of the Year at the 2004 Juno Awards. This was followed by "Beauty" in January 2005.[1]

Lake of Fire[edit]

Their 2006 followup, Lake of Fire was released on EMI Canada. It was exclusively available on iTunes in November 2006, then released physically as a cardboard Digipak in February 2007. It was produced by Jay Joyce (Patty Griffin, Tim Finn, Chantal Kreviazuk) and features songs by Van Morrison, Mike Scott of The Waterboys and Ron Sexsmith. Two singles were released from the album and the band toured Canada opening for Willie Nelson.

Disbanding[edit]

On October 8, 2007, Tara MacLean announced that she was leaving the trio.[2][3]

After MacLean's departure, Stockwood and Doyle announced on their website they would continue making music together as "Shaye". In 2009 Shaye's official website was redirected to MySpace where it was announced the band was officially no longer together. Kim Stockwood and Damhnait Doyle thanked their fans for all of their support.

Stockwood returned to a solo career while Doyle has formed a new band The Heartbroken which features three of the former members of Shaye's band.
