By performing globally across five continents in twenty-five countries, Shane has used his music as a culture-crossing mechanism to simultaneously create opportunities where he’s been able to work with a number of not-for-profit organizations to strive for positive change in the world.
His folk-music stylings have even earned him an invite to preform his original music as a cultural representative to China, as well as an order for a commissioned album for the Tanzanian government.
With nine studio albums to date, his previous efforts include 2010’s Going Places, 2011’s Songs From Pretoria, 2012’s Good Times, 2013’s Live From The Trocadero Theatre, 2014’s Emerging, 2015’s Seaside, 2016’s Seventh Story, 2017’s Madison Drive, and this year’s Pick Me Up, from which comes the lead-off single, Captain Dan, described as the, “…boyish bliss of an adventure gone wrong…”
Shane is officially on our radar now—and we are better for it—as fiddle, acoustic guitar, keys, light percussion, and his subtly-classic and folksy vocals all culminate to tell the tale of Captain Dan, a man who is away often, loved from a distance, and wanted at home. It’s a gentle and timeless composition which I can’t help but think just may be autobiographical in nature…
“When the journey’s through
You’ve got lovin’ arms to gather you…”
Storyhill meets Patchouli…
