Shawn James

Singer/songwriter Shawn James is releasing his new album, A Place in the Unknown February 25 on Parts & Labor Records.

Best known for his multi-octave powerful voice - a combination of the gospel choirs he sang with growing up in the South Side of Chicago, and later on his training in classical music and opera. Shawn James’ music is steeped in blues legends like Robert Johnson and Son House, forever at the crossroads of damnation and redemption, the two inextricably woven into the fabric of his songs.
