Tight grooves, crisp tones, emotive lyrics, waves of mood oriented improvisation.

Shaman Elect was born inside warehouses turned art studios in Brooklyn, NY. It started as a fusion of styles between Ethan Warshowsky (synths, vocals) and Fredy Garcia (guitar, vocals). Together, they began developing each other’s songs by combining elements of jazz, rock, and electronica.

In early 2017, leading up to their first live performance, Mike Malkowski (drums, vocals) joined the group, contributing his inventive and dynamic drumming. Expressive singer, Sarah Warshowsky (lead vocals) became the group’s frontwoman.

After a series of successful performances in New York City, the band released their debut full-length album, Mind the Ether, on June 15, 2018.


Who were the Shamans of old? No hotter than autumn. Who are the Shamans of new? No cooler than spring.
