Pedestrian is a Band and Art Project from Los Angeles, created by guitarist/songwriter, Joel Shearer in late 2002

Pedestrian has nothing to do with walking or being ordinary so put those thoughts to rest

Pedestrian is lyrical, poetic, chaotic, dirty, beautiful, loud, dynamic and we like David Bowie, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Nick Drake, The Cure, U2, Nirvana, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley to name a few

Pedestrian consists of musicians who have contributed to the music of Fiona Apple, Gnarles Barkley, Shakira, Alanis Morissette, Damien Rice, Our Lady Peace, Annie Lennox, Carly Simon, Lindsey Buckingham, John Cale and Richard Thompson to name a few. Pedestrian does not sound like any of the above

Pedestrian did not meet on the streets of Philadelphia

Pedestrian does not believe in war

Pedestrian toured with Damien Rice most of 2003 and Our Lady Peace in 2005 and 2006

Pedestrian has 4 independently released cd’s:

the Electric and Acoustic EP’s-2003

Ghostly Life-2006


Pedestrian recorded Sidegeist independently at the band’s studio in Los Angeles
