“Voted Best Vocalist...”

Asbury Park Music Awards

“He sounds like a garage band version of CHEAP TRICK.”

Music Nation

“Amazing songwriter!”

Anthony Justice - Facebook

“I totally love the DIY approach, crunchy guitars meet great songs!”

Rick Kent - Music Paper

“Found this CD on my desk last week and haven't taken it out of my car stereo yet!”

Canadian Music Network

“Shawn Mars, is a culmination of everything he’s learned so far. Blending the solid analog sounds of heavy ‘70s with the commercially slanted presentation of the ‘90s, Mars ploughs through the current trends like a bull in a china shop.”

John Pfeiffer - ARTS WEEKLY

“One of my favorite singers! You f***ing rock!”

Jimmy Lee Wirt

“Shawn Mars has that glam rock guitar crunch down, plus he can sing verses like spray from an AK-47...but he is really T. Rex in American clothing! Bang a Gong and rock on.”

Gabby Martinez

“The mastermind behind the New Jersey band Mars Needs Women, he’s stepped out on his own and the results are overwhelming. He has an uncanny ear for great hooks. Think Bowie meets The Beatles meets The Rolling Stones and you’re getting close to the kind of rare blood that pulses through Mars’s veins.”

John Kereiff - The Blog

“One of my favorite singers in the world!”

Charlie Mills - Steppin' Out

“Guitar and melody-driven rock music, flavored by past but built for the future.”

CD Baby

“‎If Bowie and Iggy had a child...he would be SHAWN MARS”

Diane Vocaturo - FETISH

“Shawn Mars was the mastermind behind Mars Needs Women...the difference with his solo work, is that Shawn writes and records every note himself. He says the concept is to challenge himself at every turn. Mixed in with Shawn's usual golden-touch for power-pop, he takes on garage rock, ballads, retro-rock, dance and arena rock. What holds it all together is Shawn's ear for a great pop hook.”

Main Man Records
