Land of a 1000 Dreams
Guitar wizard Shawn Kellerman is poised to join the inner circle of musicians who define modern blues. Traditional forms are reinterpreted - a not-so-subtle union of past and present delivered with ferocious authenticity. Shawn spent 5 years in Mississippi and Washington D.C., living, playing and touring with such notable blues artists as Mel Brown, Deborah Coleman, and Bobby Rush. Shawn was a regular on top draw blues stages playing the Chitlin' Circuit and the Five-Star Touring Scene and has performed hundreds of international gigs in over 20 countries. Over the years Shawn has also earned the status of a highly respected guest artist for numerous live shows and recording sessions. Shawn has recently appeared on stage with W.C. Handy Award Nominee Paul Reddick and Hohner Harmonica World Award Winner Carlos Del Junco. His powerful playing was also featured on Michael Pickett's Juno nominated CD 'Conversation with the Blues' and in 2005 Shawn was invited to play at The House of Blues 80th birthday celebration for B.B. King. Shawn's flamingcheese debut and his 2nd CD LAND OF 1,000 DREAMS is a self produced album of original material that is sure to establish him as one of best guitar players in the country! The CD's title track reflects his southern influences and the first single from the CD "Big Time" is a high energy tune featuring smokin' guitar and Memphis style horns. "Bug And Shawn" takes the blues into today's sound featuring a hip hop vocalist.
