Shark Island, led by the charismatic Richard Black, rose to prominence as the “King of the Sunset Strip” during their tenure as the house band at the renowned Gazzaris. Their journey reached new heights when they inked a deal with Epic Records in 1989, unleashing their debut album, “Law Of The Order”. The band’s unmistakable sound garnered widespread acclaim, with standout tracks like “Dangerous” and “Father Time” finding their way into the cult classic film “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”, alongside “My City” featured in the action-packed “Point Break”. Despite challenges, Black’s musical prowess persisted, leading him to join the ranks of the short-lived supergroup Contraband in 1991, alongside luminaries such as Michael Schenker (Scorpions, UFO), and members of L.A. Guns, Ratt, and Vixen, before the group disbanded following their sole album release.

In 2005, Shark Island embarked on a remarkable resurgence, releasing the acclaimed album “Gathering Of The Faithful” in 2006. Their unwavering dedication to their craft culminated in the creation of “Bloodline 2.020”, a testament to their enduring legacy. Recorded in both Croatia and Los Angeles, the album was meticulously crafted under the guidance of producer Alex Kane (Life Sex Death, Enuff Z’Nuff) and mixed by the legendary Sylvia Massy (Aerosmith, Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers). With each release, Shark Island continues to captivate audiences worldwide, solidifying their status as icons of rock ‘n’ roll.
