Shane Piasecki / Bio

Nashville based singer/songwriter Shane Piasecki’s new release Set You Free, his debut label recording on LandStar Entertainment, showcases his explosive, rootsy blend of R&B, pop, rock, folk and blues.
Produced by versatile producer, Nathan Meckel, Set You Free features top Nashville session players including bassist Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakum), drummer Jerry Roe (k.d. lang, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell), and keyboardist John Deaderick (Patty Griffin, Dixie Chicks).
“While Set You Free reflects my growth as a songwriter, it also marks a breakthrough because it’s my first recording to feature me playing lead guitar,” says Shane. “I’ve been working towards this style of Americana where I can play lead in everything for a long time. If I’m on my acoustic,” he adds, “I’m doing something folky and poppy, but put an electric guitar in my hand and I’m doing blues and rock. Set You Free combines the best of all my styles.”
While his career is in a different kind of overdrive since signing with Landstar, Shane has been building towards success for awhile. His 100-150 gigs a year (many solo acoustic, some duo, some electric fronting his backup band, The Cuts ) may seem down from his early days in Toledo, Ohio, when he’d play 300 local shows a year, but he’s been busier than ever.
His first indie album, All For Coffee, earned him a spot opening for Hanson at the House of Blues in Cleveland. Local critics took notice after hearing he had sold more albums in a single night than any other band that had ever opened up for the platinum pop trio.
Flushed with confidence, Piasecki self-released a second album You’re Here and I’m A Mess. Two of his singles, “My Two Cents” and “Sweetest Thing,” blew up on YouTube, with views and downloads of over one million. All For Coffee would eventually move 10,000 units.
“All of my life experiences before and since I moved to Nashville have really helped me grow as a songwriter,” Piasecki says. “To me, songwriting is really about chronicling the world as you see it, and that’s always been the essence of truly American music. I’m following in a storied tradition that starts all the way back with Hank Williams, Sr. in the country world and carries on to this day. At the end of the day, I’m trying to be a good American songwriter.”
