Biography

Shaun Holton isn’t your traditional artist. Essentially a one man band, the 24-year-old from Adelaide (South Australia) formed PROJECTED TWIN in late-2006. After spending his earlier years in bands, it became apparent his frustration in having to please the other members in the band stymied his growth creatively as an artist.

“I had got to a point where I felt like I wasn’t really given a proper opportunity to create music without having to worry about 3-4 other people’s opinions or artistic flare being trampled on,” said Shaun. So was the birth of Projected Twin that allows Holton to create ‘band’ orientated music as a solo artist.

“I’ve always known what I wanted to hear. And beat boxing the drum part you hear in your head to your drummer doesn’t often get the results you were aiming for. So I just hit sticks together and plucked strings until I started hearing the sounds I wanted to hear”.

After spending the most part of 2007 and 2008 performing full time all over the world including Oman, Thailand, Iraq, Indonesia and USA including a six-month residency at Dubai’s Hard Rock Café, Shaun returned to Australia with a renewed focus to cement his own blend of rock in what is to be his debut album.

The first taste of that was introduced in the form of debut single ‘We Know It’s True’ which was made available for release on iTunes and quickly made its way into the top 50 charts of MP3.com.au and the top 5 of Triple J Unearthed!

The single had already started to attract fans in America when world famous YouTuber Cory Williams and Ryan Cyr flew Shaun to Los Angeles to direct an accompanying music video.
