Shawn Harvey / Press

“First acts that we caught were British outfits The Roseville Rockers and Shawn Harvey & B-57. The first mentioned was a more than capable rockabilly outfit whilst Shawn and company certainly knew how to play rock 'n' roll music - albeit with a contemporary edge on some tunes but this only served to enhance the rockin' feel. Certainly a band to watch out for and I hope to see them again.”

Americana International 2012 - A review by Tony Wilkinson at the Rockabilly Hall

“This month's very deserving winner is guitarist Shawn Harvey. Unsigned artiste Shawn has been around the block a fair bit but he is still pursuing his dream and actually doing pretty well as it happens, having recorded and played with the likes of guitar virtuoso Albert Lee and Morrisey's right hand man Boz Boorer. A strong Country influence runs through Shawn's brand of Americana influenced Rock, plus you can pick up faint echoes of the Boss himself Bruce Springsteen, in Shawn's big choruses and widescreen tales of life on the road. We like Shawn because he is a guy who hasn't lost sight of his passion for music and the musician's lifestyle. He isn't a spring chicken but we aren't ageist at Playmusic and so we reckon he'll make good use of his spanking new Vintage v6. Keep on rockin' son.”
