Shawn Brashear! Born in Columbus, Mississippi in 1981, Shawn lived most of his youth a few miles down the road in Meridian. There he gained a strong understanding of blues. At age 16 he moved to Owensboro, Kentucky and began writing his own music. He received some free recording time at Sunlite Music in Owensboro and recorded to albums ( La La and Apt. B7). His writing continued to blossom and in 2009 he recorded a conceptual album call The Tambourine lion. His latest EP, “Mission”, shows his undying drive to make good music.
