’92 in the Shade is a new alternative rock band that blends grunge and classic rock with a touch of cinema. Based in Los Angeles, there are only 2 members: Multi-Instrumentalist and Vocalist Michael P. Naughton and Keyboardist, Donna Novak.

We’re very excited to announce the release of our new single, Giving Sorrow Words (How Does It Feel)!

It’s been said that revenge is a dish best served cold, but this song is service with a smile or a grin.
