New music from a preeminent Atlanta songwriter
Atlanta singer-songwriter Shawn Mullins has had major adult alternative radio hits with "Lullaby and "Beautiful Wreck," and he writes introspective original songs in an Americana framework that sound great either solo or with a band. He's been called Jewel with a Y chromsome, and he's looking like he's going to match her career staying power. Shawn's music is overflowing with perfect rhymes, telling detail and underlying glimpses of truth. This is uncommonly literate stuff, striking in its insightfulness and compassion, all delivered in a companionable baritone. Shawn comes to Michigan with a new album, "My Stupid Heart," that covers—you guessed it—the singer-songwriter's recent breakup. "This record came out of all that; all the feelings, all the heartache," Shawn explains. His loss is audiences' gain!
