While growing up in Chicago’s south side, Shawn James experienced the power of soul music. His blend of blues, folk & soul music contrasts dark and light, anger and joy, gritty and authentic.

Shawn James launched his career with his first full length album “Shadows” and since then he hasn’t stopped. He’s constantly on the road averaging 175 shows per year. He’s toured extensively across Europe and the United States headlining sold out shows and independently building his loyal faithful fan base.

Along with Shawn’s extensive roadwork, his songs have been featured on network and cable TV shows (CBS, HBO) and in Sony Playstation’s blockbuster game “The Last of Us 2”. His track “Through the Valley” garnered the top spot on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts. Shawn’s streams have topped 65 million across Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and continue to rise.

With three full length works + a live album under his belt, Shawn James is set to release new music throughout the remainder of 2018 and all of 2019. Beginning in the fall of 2018, Shawn will release new work on Parts + Labor Records produced and recorded by Jimmy Messer (Awolnation, Kelly Clarkson, Kygo, The White Buffalo). Check back on his socials for updates and new releases.

    Folk-Blues

    Born in Chicago in 1986, singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Shawn James discovered the power of soul in music he experienced while growing up on the south side.

    His blend of blues, folk & soul music is full of contrasts -- dark and light, anger and joy, earthy and airborne - while remaining gritty and real.

    Since releasing his first album in the fall of 2012, his music has reached millions of people. His songs have been featured on CBS, HBO and most recently in Sony Playstation's trailer for their upcoming blockbuster game "The Last of Us 2".

    Shawn James brings extreme passion to his music. You feel it in the imaginative, highly nuanced songwriting and see it in the powerful live shows where there's never the slightest hesitation and nothing is held back. And, most importantly, you can hear it resonate in Shawn's most powerful instrument: the unique, soulful voice that sounds like it is literally being torn out of his heart...and it is something you won't soon forget.
