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

Shawn, My name is Jason and have similair problems. I feel like I have nothing inside me. God knows I want to follow him and the devil will get out of me. I hope to learn how far life took you and how you got out of your hell and make you saved, I know the Word. I follow in my teachers whereever they have been. Some fade away, some come back, and some just want to see you fall. Too many times has that happened and I forgot who I am. I don't know myself, my motions move but not me. Help

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.
