Product Notes

Chill. That's Shawn's style and sound. That's the best way to describe it. Whether he's lightly finger picking and singing falsetto or violently strumming and screaming apparently angered at the microphone, he brings his emotions of relaxation, energy, love, aggression, peace and struggle simultaneously to the surface for all to see. The passion is undeniable, creating a sense of repose. Shawn is releasing his first solo EP project January 27. It consists of all original material written by Shawn on various topics of life, love, pain, joy, loss and much other subject matter that relates to all our lives. He's hosting a CD release concert at Carnegie Hall of West Virginia in Lewisburg, WV on January 27 and has received great buzz in the surrounding region, receiving calls to do interviews and guest spots on WVMR radio and multiple print outlets. He plans to follow it up with regional touring to promote and sell the album. He performs regularly around Annapolis, MD and the surrounding region as a solo performer and fronting the Shawn Owen Band. The SOBs perform original songs and some well-timed rock reggae covers from various artists from Sublime to Bob Dylan, Bob Marley to Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers to Tom Petty to John Denver and everything in between. His early musical appreciation years were consumed by classic rock, 80's pop (collateral damage consistent with having an older sister in that era) and early 90's alternative. He credits what truly changed his musical life was the first time he heard Bob Marley. The energy and message he conveys with his relaxing vibe resonated with Shawn. Bob, along with Sublime and Jack Johnson, are acknowledged as Shawn's biggest musical and dispositional influences. Along with many other inspiring artist, these icons have helped shape Shawn's unique sound. Shawn began his professional music career by forming Stolen Element in 1999, playing a home brewed style of punk rock reggae music while manning guitar and vocals over the past ten years. Stolen Element toured through beach bars and college parties throughout the east coast, selling over 3000 copies of their original EP. As the band dissolved, Shawn took to the solo route and has excelled in Annapolis, MD where he now calls home.
