**************Shawn’s new album; “Rollercoaster” is really just that!
A beautiful variety from the soft, mellow and wise “Time” to the rock-ish and exciting “One Last Horizon”, to the catchy upbeat tempo of “Eye of My Storm”, to the calming and insightful “Peace of Mind” and finally, with the sensitive and heart-felt “My Star”. The album brings the listener to the exciting top of the ride and then hurtling down to the depth of the soul.
Shawn’s lyrics are extremely mature and contain engaging melodic phrasing. The emotions of his words fit perfectly with the feeling of the guitar. His voice quality is powerful and dynamic and at the same time comforting and relaxing. He is an extremely talented guitarist and continues to grow more so by the day!
Shawn was raised in the beautiful countryside of upstate New York which undoubtedly contributes to the soothing feel of his music. At an early age, Shawn knew he loved to sing. As he said as a tot: “music is in my soul”. He first played the drums, then piano, and began singing the National Anthem at sporting events in his school district at the age of 8. He was in the Select Chorus of his High School for several years. Then at age 15 he picked up a guitar and it was love at first sound! At 17, he began playing in local restaurants, and at birthday and graduation parties. Then he moved on to local concerts, fund raisers and amusement parks. Shawn is currently attending Villanova College, majoring in Chemical Engineering, but still finds time for his music whenever possible.
He has been influenced by John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Michael Jackson, and the Beatles, among others.
His crystal clear young voice is awe inspiring! He creates a dynamic synergy between the music and the acoustics and the lyrics. His music is empowering and captivating and it all comes to him so naturally. His passion is contagious!
There is definitely a bright future on the horizon for this talented young artist. It will be a fun ride from Rollercoaster on....***********
