For over 20 years Shawn (a.k.a. Hutch) has been developing his own distinctive guitar sound and songwriting style. He shines as an extremely gifted guitar player, painting his music with infectious guitar riffs and blazing guitar solos. His music is greatly influenced by Rock n’ Roll, Blues, Folk, Country, Funk, Reggae, and Pop music.
Shawn's Music can best be described as Good Time Rock and Roll with a Southern Rock Edge, with intelligent lyrics infused with Heart and Soul; with songs of Life, social and self conflict, and meaningful topics that apply to all walks of life.
Hutch has been in a number of bands over the years and has performed hundreds of shows throughout his career and performs solo wherever he can. A typical Hutch performance is aimed at entertaining the audience with recognizable, danceable, sing-able, good time music with a touch of improvisation and unpredictability.
“My aim for each show is to leave the audience completely entertained. I want them to take the good time with them and leave them wanting more.”
Shawn has released three full length albums of original music: “Hear Me Calling (1993)” - “River of Life (2001)” and “Live or Die” (2008) as well as hundreds of other recordings throughout the years. Hutch is currently working on his fourth studio album titled, 'We The People' which is slated to be released sometime in 2013.
