Shawn Cannon is absolutely the real deal. He is a throwback to the real art of music making and is a phenomenal writer, singer, producer and musician. Classified as neo-soul (which is just a fancy way of saying real old school music) he is absolutely da bomb. His accomplishments include winning The Budweiser Super Talent Showcase, being on BET's 106 & Park, being on The Michelle Wright (locally well known DC DJ) Show, performing at The Black Family Reunion (Nationally Renowned Yearly DC event) and performing at The Stone Soul Picnic (Nationally Renowned Yearly DC event). As soon as you hear his music, you are instantly transfixed and immediately feel the soul, passion and sincerity in his lyrics. Then once you go a little deeper and actually listen to the beats and melodies intertwined with the intricate guitar lines and riffs, you are immersed in a world of life infused sound that compels you to move with the rhythms and become one with the universe and all that's around you, Then, and only then, you open your eyes and ears and truly hear the messages in the music and you are transformed into a newly conscious being that is acutely aware of the world around you. And through all of this, you are amazed by the clean and simplicity of the songs that make you laugh, dance, cry, think and reflect.... all while having fun and enjoying the beauty of life.
