Hey, I'm Shawn!

Because of your love, support, and encouragement, you've enabled me to chase what feels like magic. As this magical thing evolves and changes, I hope to always be in the pursuit and never quite catch it. Thank you!

I'm an independent musician in Annapolis, Maryland. I play original music on stage and also cover song gigs at bars and restaurants.

Using a 5 track loop station, I record multilayered vocals, keys, and guitar live on the spot.

Stage shows are full of original music ranging from sad songs about loneliness to funny songs about loneliness. Just kidding, though some songs are about that, other songs are about Vampires, being immature in my early love life, and viewing my past relationship through the eyes of my ex. I'm often joined on stage for a few songs by my friend Nick Gladstone, and most nights I like to save a segment for music improv.

Music I Play at Cover Song Gigs:

-The Black Keys

-Amy Winehouse

-Ray Charles

-Justin Timberlake

-Hall & Oats

-Childish Gambino


-Dolly Parton

-Nina Simone

-Mike Posner

-Mayer Hawthorne
