The Apollo Affair
The Apollo Affair
Formed in the winter of 2013 in a cramped one bedroom apartment in Southeast Wisconsin, The Apollo Affair is an acoustic experience that redefines the expectations associated with the "singer-songwriter" genre. Comprised of guitarist Chris Shanafelt and vocalist and frontwoman Megan Mehl, the duo have been heating up the Midwest with their feverish music and aggressive performances. With 2 EP releases under their belt (sampler "3P" in 2013 and 6-track "FEVER" in 2014) and a darker, heavier full-length release on the way, The Apollo Affair possesses an undeniable drive that borderlines upon obsession.

Chris and Megan are not content to be barstool musicians. While Chris frenetically punches away at his guitar, Megan's swaggering attitude and powerhouse vocals draw listeners in and seizes their attention. The two offer up a rapturous performance centered around their original music, with dynamic and emotionally charged content that ranges from the intimate, the sensual, and the disparagingly vulnerable to the violent, the suggestive, and the seething. As deceptively lush instrumentals pulse underneath, Megan croons, growls, belts, and screams into melodic lines that demonstrate her acumen for impassioned songwriting. The Apollo Affair gives listeners the uncompromising, scintillating energy of a full rock band within the nuanced context of an acoustic duo.

The Apollo Affair are currently booking and performing shows around the Midwest. They are also in the midst of putting together material for a new full-length acoustic album, which they hope to release in Spring of 2016.
