Noted by music fans for his blue-eyed soul vocals, freewheeling melodies, and earthy charm, singer, songwriter, and musician Shawn Brown is ecstatic to now be appearing on Spotify. Known largely for his 2007 full length LP, Just in Case, and several EPs, Shawn’s recording output has always been a potent mix of upbeat, radio friendly pop and Shawn’s soul-drenched voice. His sound has fueled comparisons to artists such as Marc Broussard, Gavin Degraw, and Jason Mraz. (“This guy gives Rob Thomas a run for his money!" Away Team. com.) Brown first received attention for his 2005 single ‘Lucky Boy’, which was featured in several television shows, as did his 2007 single ‘The Risk’. He has toured both nationally and internationally in the past, as well as spending time away from touring to write for other artists.
“Shawn Brown's songs have got soul. Not to mention a little rock, pop and a bit of garage grunge in the repertoire of this San Francisco singer-songwriter…His sound is infused by the soulful crooning of Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder, whose songs had been banging around in his head since childhood.”
"Somewhere along the line Shawn Brown turned from a kid with an acoustic guitar into a soulful troubadour of the human condition…these are modern day spirituals, played with fire and heart."
