“I'm a Houston kid who's been writing, playing and recording music for over 12 years in Austin. I’ve been fortunate to play my music on all kinds of stages across the country and to release six albums. It's a labor of love and at this point, my life's work.”
After the release of five independent albums with various band mates – two under Shawn Nelson, one with Shawn Nelson & The Good Buds, two with Shawn Nelson & The Ramblers, Shawn marks his sixth release with “The Devils River” - a throw-back country album dipped in some americana sauce.
“This Devils River record has been a long time coming. I’ve played these songs for many years in honky-tonks, bars, clubs, dancehalls, big stages, small stages, backyard parties, campfires, patios, hotel rooms, motel rooms, parking lots, farmers markets, flat-bed trailers, boats and even buses. Some of the songs are set closers, but all of them come from the heart and some of them are even true.”
