Jasin Todd, very nice...

"With the release of their 2003 debut "Leave A Whisper", Shinedown joined the ranks of modern metal bands taking their cues from the major league success of Creed. Namely they played crunchy guitar nu metal with unprecedented amounts of melody. The band's 2004 single, a cover of the great Skynyrd, "Simple Man," was surprisingly true to the original, and also successfully fused real Southern rock elements to the trappings of radio metal. Shinedown proved itself a band that was able to change with the times."

Shinedown, rockers from Jacksonville, FLA

Melodic hard rockers Shinedown hail from Jacksonville, Florida and feature vocalist Brent Smith, guitarist Jasin Todd, bassist Brad Stewart and drummer Barry Kerch. Snapped up by Atlantic Records during the early ‘00's flurry of post-Creed and Nickelback signings, the group released their debut album Leave a Whisper in 2003. Whisper ended up doing doing quite well for the band, aided by its single "Fly from the Inside." Shinedown also supported it with a heroic slate of live shows, remaining on tour for most of 2004. The following year the band issued a live album documenting those shows, then returned in October 2005 with their sophomore effort Us and Them. Ed Rivadavia, All Music Guide.
