Shawn James & The Shapeshifters
Shawn James & The Shapeshifters
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.

Band Bio:

Shawn James & The Shapeshifters are a 4 piece heavy blues rock band from Fayetteville, Arkansas. Their brand of hard hitting electrified dirty delta blues rock combined with Shawn's soulfully roaring vocals make for an intense listening experience whether playing the records or seeing them live.

With their busy tour schedule, you can catch them playing festivals and shows all over the world or hear their music featured on Discovery Channel, NBC, and other media platforms.

They've continuously gained momentum every year since they formed in 2013 and show no signs of slowing down.
Black Dog Friday
Black Dog Friday
Black Dog Friday is 4 guys with epic beards making dirty, swamp-blues rock in the heart of the Big D. BDF has been fighting to stay alive and kicking since 2010. What started as a dream of making music has turned into something other worldly. With the hopes of turning out simple amazing tunes still on the horizon, they're striving to be heard and be known. Piece by piece, they've fallen away or were struck down, but never gave up. With twangy melodies, muddy slide, a pounding rhythm section and catchy riffs, they've come to turn the music world on it's ear and redefine what Southern Rock is.
