Local singer-songwriter Trevor Stout got his start a couple of years ago at open mic nights at places such as Brothers Lounge, the Winchester, Kelley’s Pub and Stella’s Music Club before forming the indie rock act he calls Shelter Pup.

The band released the single “It’s Your Funeral” back in 2020, and just today, it's released Pack Your Bags, a five-song EP that’s be accompanied by a short film about being “wholly in the moment.”

“[Pack Your Bags] is a time capsule that highlights some of my personal struggles, interpersonal relationships, getting a grip on getting older, breaking habits/routines and the bit of self realization/emotional intelligence I've learned through the first few years of being out on my own as a fully independent human,” says Stout in a press release. “It feels like the most honest piece of art I've been able to create in my life so far.”
