'A Drink Before Going' CD Release and Needle Drop party on November 3rd at the best damn coffee shop in town, Fiona's Coffee and Gifts. Will be playing a solo set, sharing some stories, and then giving the first ever public listen of the completed album!
“It takes a while to get a vocalist as radical as Shawn - A little like the first time you ever heard Tom Waits, perhaps - but when it clicks you have a very worthwhile experience. Bordering on the genius.”
— Dave Gibbons of the Monobandits
“The guitar accompaniment is delicately played, simple, and perfect. The voice sets the songs apart. It is that quality in a voice that you cannot learn – natural uniqueness. The combination makes for a moving, almost uncomfortable experience – but this makes the songs' attraction all the more.”
— Donk Azure
“As always, Shawn Crowle delivers an honest, raw, emotion-felt vocal performance with warm, moody guitar backdrop in this work. There is a yearning in this song… A search for reason… and a light amount of crises… leaves one to stop and reflect.
— Timothy Klugh
“The singing is a total expression of the soul and the imperfections make it perfect.”
— Doctor Trog
“Your narrative voice is such that you sound meditative, introspective, spiritual, reflective and exuberant when you sing. Qualities of prayer.”
— Thane Satyr (former drummer/vocalist of the Naughty Divas)
“Lyrically strong songs, well told as a storyteller should. I feel the weather beaten experienced storytelling. Wonderful songs.”
Van Morrison eat your heart out! Good song. Good luck.”
— Nigel Spencer
“Love this musical world. Your voice sounds like a prayer.”
