He has been a singer, songwriter, actor, perfomer and liturgist for over 20 years- performing concerts, interactive music and theater events, and weaving song into a variety of performance, teaching and consulting venues around North America and the world.

Shawn's music draws on many styles from folk to indie rock to traditional Jewish music to rhythm and blues and beyond. His CD "Heart and Soul" takes you through the world of prayer, longing and a celebration of life, using universal themes with a contemporary interpretation and sound. Many of the songs have found their way into worship services across North America and are performed by other singers and musicians.
Produced in Philadelphia at Radioactive Productions, "Heart and Soul" builds on Shawn's songs and rhythm guitar work, with the excellence of leading independent musicians.
