Shaman's Harvest is a rock band from Jefferson City, Missouri. Bassist Matt Fisher, singer Nathan "Drake" Hunt, and guitarist Josh Hamler founded the band in 1996. Ryan Tomlinson joined the band on lead guitar for their 2009 album Shine. Shaman's Harvest released their fifth full-length album titled Smokin' Hearts & Broken Guns on September 16, 2014. This release marked their debut on Mascot Records.[1]


The band released three albums in their early years: Last Call for Goose Creek (1999), Synergy (2002), and March of the Bastards (2006). In 2009, the single "Dragonfly" reached #16 on Billboard's Active Rock chart, #9 at Heritage Rock, and #34 on Billboard's Rock Songs chart.[2] The single sold over 130,000 copies and the album sold 33,000+ copies. The song appeared on the soundtrack of the motion picture Legendary.

In early 2010, Shaman's Harvest recorded "Broken Dreams" as the theme song for wrestler Drew McIntyre of the WWE. They continued that relationship, supplying "End of Days" as the entrance track for Wade Barrett and The Corre. They also created the promo song "And Then There Was Darkness" for Bray Wyatt and The Undertaker for their fight at Wrestlemania 31. Their song "Anger" appears in the feature film No One Lives.[3][4][5]

During the recording of their album Smokin' Hearts & Broken Guns, Hunt was diagnosed with throat cancer and received treatment during the recording of the album. Lead guitarist Ryan Tomlinson left the group in September 2014 to concentrate on his band Driving Wheel. He was replaced by guitarist Derrick Shipp for the tour supporting Smokin' Hearts & Broken Guns. Joe Harrington joined on drums following the release of "Smokin' Hearts & Broken Guns". He left in August 2015 and Jeff Nations filled in before Adam Zemanek joined on drums in October 2015.
