“Shawn’s music is a delightful mix of contemporary acoustic rocking, gentle vocalizing and the occasional instrumental freakout. Playing a classical flamenco guitar, he also supplies himself with the long forgotten drum percussion that most acoustic acts leave behind. Hailing from New York City, a town touted for lyrical troubadours, Shawn is of a different breed, concentrating his energy on strumming out the long road he has travelled instead of trying to explain it....Shawn’s grandiose builds are like a weathered truck making it over a mountain pass: his back and forth sway on stage acknowledges this endless effort, as well as the hole beginning to form on his guitar’s unprotected body: a sign of long hours spent strumming and drumming against it. Once the peak is summited, he coasts back down gently with blues picking riffs that settle the mind back to more coherence.”
