“A well-crafted tale in the Americana/folk tradition worthy of repeated listens”
- Ken Abrams on "Seven Songs", What's Up Newport
Shaw created this project as a tribute to late night bar bands, his love for experimental Americana music, and as a way to explore the myriad faces of hope and heartache. This is a story about ruined dreams and renewed possibility, of the life we imagined and the reality we find ourselves in, and of the beautiful, complicated mess that is getting through a single day. This is for all who struggle to survive, who strive for a better life, and to those we’ve lost along the way.
