Shaun Barrowes EP
Shaun Barrowes Biography Shaun grew up in a musical family, performing with his family from the age of three as a singer and instrumentalist. At the age of six, he took to the piano. At 15, his piano teacher encouraged Shaun to experiment with composition. This led to the discovery of his true passion and purpose in life. Shaun cut his first record at the age of 16, selling a few hundred copies to his fellow high school classmates. He then went on to record a series of albums and demo CD's to develop his musical voice and style as well as establish himself as a professional musician. This journey brought Shaun to Southern California, where he recorded, collaborated and trained with some of the best musicians and music producers in the country; musicians with artist credits such as Madonna, Michelle Branch, Destiny's Child, Stacie Orrico, Joe Cocker, ZZ Top, No Doubt and many more. During his own development process, Shaun has written and produced songs for other artists signed to various record labels including Sony and Universal Records. During this time, he developed an interest in jazz and the American Songbook, listening to artists such as Nat King Cole, George Gershwin and Frank Sinatra. Throughout the years, the musical artists who've had the biggest influence on Shaun's career include: Sting, Billy Joel, Elton John, Michael Jackson, George Gershwin, Danny Elfman, John Williams, Thomas Newman, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Cole Porter, the Beatles, Elvis, U2, and many more. With these influences, Shaun Barrowes has fused together a sound that's very unique and yet very soulful.
