“Just listened to "It Ain't Easy (May As Well Be Me)"...That's one awesome cut...totally loved it!...There's good music, damned good music, and then a rare gem like this. I don't just say nice things to make people happy. I give you all the props on this without even a sliver of a second thought..."”
"I approached Shawn after hearing his music and being blown away by his craft as a songwriter, performer, and engineer. His songs are invariably strong, with great hooks and immaculately recorded. He generously permitted Abrazos (a breast cancer benefit) to feature one of his songs in Abrazos 2011 and I am forever grateful for his gesture."

“Truth from my heart. Your music is beautiful to hear, and inspiring to listen to."”
"OMG, Shawn! You sound totally amazing and so do all of your songs. You've got a new fan in this songwriter! I can't believe you don't already have a major record deal. You sound better than anyone on the radio right now, for sure."
"Dream World [pop/dance track for the next record] = AMAZING! The whole song sounds incredible, would love to know how you do the music!! The beat, the tune, the lyrics are all AMAZING.

"Listened to your stuff...thought it was really well produced, arranged and quite unique yet keeping with some sort of pop format so that the listener is not completely thrown off...familiar yet completely different...a good thing!"
