Singer-Songwriter Shawn Haney's Passion for Performance

Last night I got a chance to see Shawn Haney perform at the Mellow Mushroom on Chastain Rd. Shawn is a prolific singer-song who frequently plays at various venues and open mics around metro-Atlanta. Shawn was the entertainment for a three hour block of time. He has an extensive repertoire of covers and original material, and Shawn pulls them off quite well. He has managed to keep his repertoire fresh by learning newer music like hits from Coldplay and Five for Fighting. For those of us who still like the classics, Shawn usually includes hits by iconic singer-songwriters and classic rock mainstays such as The Beatles, James Taylor, Neil Young and Steely Dan.

I really enjoy Shawn's own material as well. He writes and sings with an enthusiasm and optimism that is unique. Shawn's music is full of surprises. It is unique in its deviation from the typical formulaic sound that is far too easy for the songwriter to rely upon to quickly turn out new songs that lack originality and creative innovation. Shawn believes in having faith in your gifts and never giving up on your dreams. He hopes to have some songs sent to tv and film placements, and is working on making and completing a solo singer/songwriter record within the year.
