Central Arts, Sunday 19th May & doors open at 9:30 p.m.


Take one listen to Shawn James’ music and you can hear his roots in the Mississippi delta by way of growing up on the fabled South Side of Chicago, his authentic, gutbucket blend of blues, folk, and soul music running the gamut of ecstatic joy and painful anguish.

The singer-songwriter has previously released four full-length albums, including his debut, ‘Shadows’, a live record ‘Live at the Heartbreak House’, a covers EP ‘The Madrid Sessions’ and the original songs of his most recent effort, ‘On the Shoulders of Giants’. Shawn’s latest offering, ‘The  Dark & The Light’, was released on indie label ‘Parts + Labor Records’ and produced and recorded by Jimmy Messer (AWOLNation, Kelly Clarkson, Kygo, The White Buffalo).

James is a road dog, the hellhounds at his heels, performing more than 200 dates a year. James’s songs have been featured on HBO, CBS and Sony’s game ‘The Last of Us2’. James’s track, ‘Through the Vallery’, topped Spotif’s Global Viral Charts, while generating more than 60 million streams combined on Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube.
