Shawn James & The Shapeshifters / Press

“Shawn James deserves to be famous. His songwriting is clever and deep, his singing is superlative, and his songs are well-crafted and faultlessly executed. The production is top-notch, capturing atmosphere and the nuances of each instrument, without managing to sound overproduced or canned. In any review that I’ve done so far, I’ve not ever gone so far as to encourage anyone to spend money. Times are tough for everybody. But if you love music that can stir your very soul, buy this album.”

“Shawn James has soul.  It’s in the haunting baritone that rises from deep within him.  It’s in the way his guitar pick hits the strings, a little hard, a little soft, but always complimenting the song. It’s a musical style he’s been shaping since his childhood, singing from the church pew.”
