Shawn James

Blues,Acoustic

Born on the south side of Chicago, Shawn James had a hardworking, kind mother and a gambling, abusive, drunk father. He grew up singing in church and was drawn to the emotional and ethereal power that music could have over people. It was there that he found his escape and learned how to harness his unique, soulful voice. Shawn now lives in Fayetteville, Arkansas and plays a mix of haunting folk and hard-hitting soulful blues.
