Shawn McDonald

After a rebellious childhood, songwriter Shawn McDonald found God and began to clean up his act. He also started writing songs that combined his faith with elements of contemporary pop/rock, which led to a contract with Sparrow Records and a string of album releases. Simply Nothing marked his debut in 2004, followed by a handful of live releases (Live in Seattle, Scattered Pieces: Live) and studio efforts (Ripen, Roots, Closer). ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

I've been listening to Shawn for a fee years now. thanks for making good music. I love his vibe it's laid back and He's got a little soul! He's not trying to sound or be like everybody else. I also like the fact that his lyrics are from the heart and he genuinely loves God.
