Shawn James

Shawn JamesBorn in 1986 in the south side of Chicago, Shawn James had a hardworking, kind mother and a gambling, abusive, drunk father. He grew up singing in church and was drawn to the emotional and ethereal power that music could have over people. It was there that he found his escape and learned how to harness his unique, soulful voice.

Shawn now lives in Fayetteville, Arkansas and plays a mix of haunting folk and hard-hitting soulful blues. You might catch him playing on the street in the rain some night, rockin at a bar while you get rowdy, or you might just find him performing an intimate set for friends at a house show. No matter where you see him, just make sure you have your eyes and ears open, his performance will be one you won’t forget.

2013 will be busy for Shawn.

The Wolf is the first in a set (The Shapeshifter Trilogy) of 3 concept EPs that Shawn James is releasing in 2013 under the name Shawn James & the Shapeshifters.

The Wolf is a haunting, folk story of a man who was raised by wolves. Shawn’s unique, powerful songwriting mixed with the beautiful, orchestral layers of the Shapeshifters makes for an unforgettable musical experience.

He plans to release The Bear in the springtime and says that it will have more of an old, rowdy, blues sound with swampy, slide guitar.

The Hawk is planned for the fall of this year and will be written on piano.

Shawn James is definitely one to watch in 2013.
