Shawn Z.

About Shawn Z.: Shawn Z. fills the house full of rock, americana, country, folk music and humor.

Influences? "Steve Earle, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Kris Kristofferson, Billy Joe Shaver, Tom Petty and my friend Todd Snider."

His seemingly bottemless song bag provides the soundtrack to observations of life on the thin highways of a Fat America.

Many of the pieces Shawn performs feature tongue and cheek humor sprung largely from his prolific imagination.

Shawn's first independent release titled "Wishful Drinkin" received airplay throughout the US and the world on Americana, Rock, Country and NPR stations .. as well as airplay on Xm Satellite Radio's X-Country 'channel 12' and Sirius Satellite Radio 'Outlaw Country', and reached 11 after 14 weeks while on the Americana XM X-Country (channel 12) Charts.

He's written and continues to write songs with some of the best songwriters in all genres of the music world..

"I guess being famous and well known started off being important, But over time I’ve found that fame isn't nearly as much of a focus as doing something significant with my music or my songwriting. Not that it's significant yet, but at least I'm getting there."

“I’m just trying to open my heart and not be a coward about what’s in there,” he says. “That’s how I make my living. I tell the stories that I know, and if you learn from them, that’s your own fault. Music is fun for me.”
