Shawn Tallard's conception began when a kick-ass drum set and a leggy electric guitar fell in passionate love at a rock concert, and made a baby. Upon Shawn's birth, the attending Physicians sang an A Capella rendition of "All You Need Is Love" in 5 part harmony, but the Anesthetist was Judo-chopped to the shin when Shawn heard that she was slightly sharp. At that point, word spread of the Judo-chopping infant with such musical inclinations.
His 6-string Mother was made proud when his first words were "I Love You Mother, but alas, I have a calling to which I must respond," and, much like the Lorax, he hoisted himself by the seat of his pants, and flew up through a hole in the clouds.
Many years later he would return to serenade the ears of the world with a singular philosophy: Life should kick ass, and so should your soundtrack.
Listen. Dream. Rock.
