Shaun is a modern folk singer/songwriter following in the tradition of romantic troubadours such as Joshua Radin, Jason Mraz and Damien Rice. Inspired primarily by love and relationships, his songwriting explores joy, excitement, doubt, insecurity and longing with a gentle and endearing honesty.
Shaun's recently released solo album 'Silence', (produced by James Seabrook) features vocals by Emily Coulston, percussion by Jeff Hicks, delicate pianos by Victor Kwan (Island) and a beautiful sound-scape of strings (cello, viola, steel) by renowned Nashville multi-instrumentalist Troy Engle.
Since the tender age of 1 month it was clear that Shaun would change the world through music. By 1 he had mastered the piano, recorder and harpsichord (parts of this bio are fictional). Following in the footsteps of his idols, the California Raisins, he decided it was time to learn guitar, so his dad made him a guitar out of plywood and fishing line (other parts of this bio are completely true). It looked cool but didn't really work. At age 11 Shaun's uncle bought him his first real guitar. He took lessons for a year and learned popular chords such as the C chord, and the D chord. However, Shaun quickly became discouraged with the guitar as it was not the choice instrument of new musical idols - The RZA, The GZA and the Method Man. In 2006, roughly 16 years later, Shaun found himself amidst change. He simplified, grew, learned and listened. He spoke. He disconnected and reconnected. He fell. He got back up. He found an acoustic guitar and they quickly became best friends.
