    Shawn has once again blown me away with his songwriting craft. His commitment to production value is evident in the multitracks he delivers, and his performances are bar none. With all the layers that go into a hard rock song that includes an orchestra, one would think it would be difficult to manage everything as an engineer, but Shawn's arrangement skills make all the parts fit seamlessly.

    Really happy to work with Shawn again! His latest tune shows his versatility as a songwriter, turning one of his heavy rock tunes into a piano and acoustic based ballad. Coupled with high production quality and performances, the song was a joy to work on!

    Working with Shawn has been an awesome experience! His latest song Dead Leaves is simply amazing rock songwriting craftsmanship. It goes through so many phases, creating a 7+ minute epic in which every section blends into the next perfectly. Simply put it's a great song that I'll be listening to frequently even after it's done (spoilers: I already have been)!

    Was very happy to work with Shawn again. In our latest collaboration, he found a new way to revitalize previous work: added orchestration, new vocals, new rhythm guitars. It was really cool to see the creative process applied to an existing song that already rocked and bring something fresh to it.

    Working with Shawn again has been a pleasure. Love the energy he brings to his music, particularly his vocals. He's got a great modern rock voice that has lots of emotion and feeling in it. Couple that with his epic layers of harmonies and background vocals and it's a mix engineer's dream.

    Working with Shawn again was a joy! Loved the work he put into his vocal production. So many well arranged layers added immensely to the production value. I can't stress this enough, but if anyone gets a chance to work with Shawn, take it! His talent as a performer and songwriter is immense and versatile. His vocals, guitars, and arrangements have all been very impressive.

    Working with Shawn was a pleasure from start to finish. First off, his vocals on the recent songs we did together were awesome. It's always a pleasure to work on quality vocals. There were so many great guitar solos too! It seems to be a dying art in modern rock music, perhaps as some kind of backlash against the excess of the 80's, but Shawn is bringing solos back and rocking out! If you get a chance to work with Shawn, do so!

    Shawn had me play on his 3 song EP and I was so pleased with the quality of songs and his communication skills. He was able to give me solid quality guide tracks so I knew exactly what he needed me to play. He also allowed me to stretch out a little bit on each song which was a lot of fun.
