With influences ranging from classic rock and roll to modern hard rock, Shiver combines powerfully written numbers with unique instrumentation, creating a catchy, energetic, yet intricate live show.
Rosalind Darbeau, a Southern California native, is a classically trained violinist that has been playing for 15 years.
