Saint Jude Avenue
Shawn\'s first independent solo release titled \'Wishful Drinkin\' started to receive airplay throughout the US and the world on Americana and NPR stations .. as well as airplay on Xm Satellite Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio, and reached #11 after 14 weeks while on the Americana and XM \'X-Country\' (channel 12) Charts. He\'s written songs with some of the best songwriters in country and rock and he\'s only getting started. \'I guess being famous and well known started off being important, But over time I've found that fame isn\'t nearly as much of a focus as doing something significant with my music or my songwriting. Not that it\'s significant yet, but at least I\'m getting there... I think.\' Perhaps not surprisingly, \'Wishful Drinkin\' has opened doors nationally for Shawn that are nearly unheard of with an artist who has no record label support, Management or Publicity team. His second solo release titled \'Saint Jude Avenue\' is already creating more \'buzz\' in the industry. Shawn performs as many shows a year he can, insisting he continues to write songs so he can play them in front of an audience. "Inside my own little musical concert act is where I most like to be. And I stay in that place all the time, not just during the show. And that's part of it - That's more than any of it to me, living out these songs and stories. The songs and records come when they want to, but the show never has to stop".
