What concert promoters have had to say... August 6,2008 Shawn came to play an outreach concert for us in Elgin, SC. It was a GIANT success! I have dealt with several bands, and many that have gone to make it "big" if you will. Shawn is by far the most approachable, considerate, humble, and easy to talk to guys I've ever dealt with. My kids agreed whole-heartedly! They even went to Waffle House with our kids afterwards! WHAT!? That's unheard of from an artist that, in my opinion, is overdue for a recording contract! Shawn Bilton is a must-see, must-hear, must-have artist! In fact, I have already booked him for 2 more events in the next year. Shawn is an amazing leader and lover of God...and if they didn't have that, what would they have? Guys, thanks again! We will see you in October!

To Whom It May Concern: During June of 2007 we invited Shawn Bilton to come and tour Southwest Kansas. Southwest Kansas was unaware of the movement that was about to take place and how God was going to use a Christian Rock singer to start it. After spending just a few short days with Shawn, we knew we had made the right choice in whom we invited to join us in spreading the Hope of Jesus across the Heartland. The remainder of the 10 day tour was just an amazing time of praying together, helping communities and allowing Shawn to lead us in Worship. Since the summer tour, we have received several emails and phone calls requesting them back into our area. I highly recommend and stand behind Shawn Bilton. His leadership and character speak volumes of his personal relationship and love for Jesus. Shawn has chosen the high road. The road few seem to be content with traveling. He is not caught up in the fame of being in music, but is caught up in bringing people to worship with them through their music. They present a quality concert for a fraction of the cost of other bands and spend time getting to know the community.

During our discussion, I told him that I was a Youth Pastor and would love to have him play at a retreat. Long story short, we were finally able to get together for one of our retreats in May of 2007. It was certainly worth the wait. Shawn has a tremendous heart for God and God has truly blessed him with the ability to lead worship. Not only is he a talented singer/songwriter, but he has an amazing testimony that can touch the heart of anyone. The 4 sessions that he led before our Bible Studies were nothing short of amazing. Each time you could feel God's presence through him and God totally prepared our hearts during these sessions. If you have an upcoming retreat or if you're just looking for a band to play at your church/school/event, you would be hard-pressed to find a better worship leader than Shawn Bilton.
