ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"He's spectacular…Shawn plays with the authority of someone who's been playing for a really, really long time." - Colin Linden

Guitar wizard Shawn Kellerman is poised to join the inner circle of musicians who define modern blues. Traditional forms are reinterpreted — a not-so-subtle union of past and present delivered with ferocious authenticity.

Shawn's 3rd CD Blues Without A Home" is now available on flamingcheese records. The CD features Lucky Peterson on B3 and clavinet, and contains several get original tunes including "Love Is Sweet" that Shawn wrote with the late blues guitarist Mel Brown. This CD has some amazing guitar on it and it sound like Kellerman does live.

Shawn understood from the beginning that true blues is a cultural tradition, passed down directly from today's masters to the next generation. As a result, Shawn spent 5 years in Mississippi and Washington D.C., living, playing and touring with such notable blues artists as Mel Brown, Deborah Coleman, and Bobby Rush. Shawn was a regular on top draw blues stages playing the Chitlin' Circuit and the Five-Star Touring Scene and has performed hundreds of international gigs in over 20 countries.

These years on the road gave birth to Shawn's trademark live stage presence, an unforgettable high-energy assault on the audience that is as much felt as heard. Over the years Shawn has also earned the status of a highly respected guest artist for numerous live shows and recording sessions. Shawn has recently appeared on stage with W.C. Handy Award Nominee Paul Reddick and Hohner Harmonica World Award Winner Carlos Del Junco. His powerful playing was also featured on Michael Pickett's Juno nominated CD "Conversation with the Blues" and in 2005 Shawn was invited to play at The House of Blues 80th birthday celebration for B.B. King.

With his second CD recorded, featuring all original material, that is based in the blues and draws from elements of rock, soul, jazz and even hip hop to create a crossover sound that has resounding appeal across many traditional boundaries. "Land of 1000 Dreams", co-written with Mark Whittington in Mississippi, reflects a distinctive influence of the deep south, while the hip hop inspired "Bug'N Shawn" shows the expanse of Shawn's creative range.

On CD and on stage, Shawn's music is an experience that lingers in the memory long after the last note has been played.

"Shawn hit the stage smoking with energy and left it dripping in sweat." - Tim Holek (Blues on Stage Internet Review)
