Biography
Taylor’s 3rd original song collection, “Home,” blends Americana sounds and perspectives through the deeply personal (yet widely universal) stories of a cast of 21st century characters. It runs from solo guitar tracks with thumping thumb, dancing fingers and wailing harp; to economical band tracks with cello, steel slide guitar, Telecaster, bass, percussion, and layered harmonies.
The songs’ characters are a slice of this decade’s American pie. Corrupt bankers and politicians. A pregnant woman awaiting her love’s return. A soldier saying good-bye. There are those who’ve lost their homes on paper, and those who’ve lost them in their hearts. And then there are those just glad to have each other, and those content to sit with good company and a cup of coffee, to laugh at their own foolishness. And all these characters are connected by the underlying theme of the ephemeral nature of ‘home.’
“Shawn is a masterful balladeer and troubador,” says Remo Ricaldone of American Roots Radio in Italy. “The real deal,” says Jim Dubinski of WUVT, Va.


With a thumping thumb, dancing fingers, deep gritty soul stirring vocals & poetic blue collar lyrics; Taylor's songs ooze American roots. His voice has been compared to Tom Waites, Bruce Springstien, Chris Smither, Bob Dylan & Eddie Vedder. His original songs draw from the deep Americana muscial well, & his lyrics are colored by the experiences of his own working class wandering, and family roots. He's been an oysterman, carpenter, hitchhiker, homeowner, father, husband, 'Thru-hiker' (Appalachian Trail '96, Long Trail '97, & John Muir Trail '06 - visit his blog "Short Stories From A Long Walk") & full time musician since his '08 debut release "Wandering Roots."
