Shawn James & The Shapeshifters Heavy Blues Rock (band) Blues Folk Soul (solo) Biography Born in Chicago in 1986, singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Shawn James discovered the power of soul in music he experienced while growing up on the south side. His blend of blues, folk & soul music is full of contrasts -- dark and light, anger and joy, earthy and airborne – while remaining gritty and real. Since releasing his first album in the fall of 2012, his music has reached millions of people. His songs have been featured on CBS, HBO and most recently in Sony Playstation’s trailer for their upcoming blockbuster game “The Last of Us 2”. Shawn James brings extreme passion to his music. You feel it in the imaginative, highly nuanced songwriting and see it in the powerful live shows where there’s never the slightest hesitation and nothing is held back. And, most importantly, you can hear it resonate in Shawn’s most powerful instrument: the unique, soulful voice that sounds like it is literally being torn out of his heart…and it is something you won’t soon forget. Band Bio: Shawn James & The Shapeshifters are a 4 piece heavy blues rock band from Fayetteville, Arkansas. Their brand of hard hitting electrified dirty delta blues rock combined with Shawn's soulfully roaring vocals make for an intense listening experience whether playing the records or seeing them live. With their busy tour schedule, you can catch them playing festivals and shows all over the world or hear their music featured on Discovery Channel, NBC, and other media platforms. They've continuously gained momentum every year since they formed in 2013 and show no signs of slowing down.

I  didn't like you when I first met you
But then you grew on me
I've got a tendency to like the wilder ones
Haunted by demons you were going through hell
I wanted you to be free
I didn't know if I could help or not but I wouldn't flee

Now when I reach out in the dark, I don't feel you
Have we crossed the point of no return?
I wanna be loud and clear in that I miss you
But now I guess I understand that
To truly love you I had to let you go
My brother
My brother

Do you remember that night in the basement I walked in on you?
Gun at your head and finger on the trigger
I knew what you would do
We talked for hours and the tears came down
You needed an escape
I'm glad you didn't end your life that day in spite of all that weight

Now when I reach out in the dark, I don't feel you
Have we crossed the point of no return?
I wanna be loud and clear in that I miss you
But now I guess I understand that
To truly love you I had to let you go
My brother
My brother

Now when I reach out in the dark, I don't feel you
Have we crossed the point of no return?
I wanna be loud and clear in that I miss you
But now I guess I understand that
To truly love you I had to let you go
My brother
My brother
