Shawn James

Saturday, August 10
Show | 8pm // Doors | 7:30pm
$19.50 to $29.50

Shawn James’ voice is a force of nature, a combination of the gospel choirs he sang with as a youngster and his training in classical music and opera. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, James’ timeless sound is steeped in blues legends like Robert Johnson and Son House, forever at the crossroads of damnation and redemption, the two inextricably woven into the fabric of his songs. James annually tours more than 150 dates around the world and has released some 70 songs over the past five years, both on his own and as part of his “more raucous rock” band the Shapeshifters. Transcending any and all genres, James’ songs speak as much to these tremulous times as they do the eternal human condition. Pointing to authentic performers like Tom Waits, soul singers like Otis Redding, Sam Cooke or Bill Withers, and the old blues icons who inspired him, James explains, “I want my music to be respected…my goal is to make music that stands the test of time.” Don’t miss Shawn’s first show in Sellersville!
