Shadowplay is a rock/alternative band based in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. The roots of the group can be traced back to playing music in the year 2006, at the age of 14. Together, Lead Singer, Andrew Corkery, and Guitar player, Dan Holden, officially founded Shadowplay in 2009.

Since then they have been going non-stop in the music scene, gaining traction and sustaining success ever so rapidly. In 2011, they released their official "Ghost Train" EP, featuring the respectively named single and 7 other songs. These tracks would later be rerecorded in addition to newer material for the release of their first album "Visions", which would be released in 2012.

The local and personal success of constant performing of the groups early material at the time got them connected with Ted Richardson in Philadelphia, PA, with whom they produced the single "Sandy Eyes" in 2013, in response to Hurricane Sandy which tore through the bands home the year prior. The group then began opening up for such notable acts as Tracii Guns of (LA Guns, and Guns and Roses), and Doug Wimbish of (Living Colour), Hoobastank, even completing two national tours of their own. Now after four years of working on new music, touring, and working diligently, the band has once again teamed up with Richardson to release their second full length LP. The album is titled "Almost Lifelike" and was released on June 21st, 2016. It brings out a much more mature level of craftsmanship in relationship to the band's early work, and they are eager for everyone to hear it. The first single "Empty Skeleton" has been made available for streaming along with the album on Spotify, SoundCloud, and bandcamp.


“The Real Radio Show (Live in Time Square) This band sounds like they are signed to the major... This band sounds like they are signed to the major Label! They are so talented. They are the total package! The Looks, the Sound, the Style. Everything to make the big thing in rock music! Everyone has to know about Shadowplay!”

Henry K - The Real Radio Show (Live in Time Square NYC)

“Set on by the dynamic of Shadowplay themselves, this collection of tracks (called Visions) is fitting for the band as a first release. It truly encompasses the sound the band wish to bring about as their own. With touches of familiarity, yet a new sound that can only be described as Shadowplay music.”

411 Underground

“Shadowplay comes at you with the passion of youth and the talent and sound of well-seasoned rock-and-roll'rs. By honoring the classic rock style, and still expanding on it by incorporating other styles into their sound, this band has what it takes to succeed and cannot be ignored.”


Prog rock with pretty grungy vocals. They cover a lot of ground with this and fans of Eidola (or really any of the blue swan bands) will definitely dig this.
