Electronic elements on new album by Shawn McDonald

OHIO-based singer/songwriter Shawn McDonald has the followup to 2013's unique live-to-tape re-recorded collection 'The Analog Sessions' released on 15th April. Speaking about the 'Brave' album on Sparrow McDonald said, "I've been a singer/songwriter for close to 16 years now and have seen so many elements progress within my music. I may have started with just an acoustic guitar and some simple stories, but I've since sought to create art with meaning, messages, thought and depth. This record feels like the deepest I've ever dived in that direction, all while adding considerably to my sound, which is why I called the record 'Brave'. I feel like I'm making art with the same intentions, but there is definitely an increasingly noticeable electronic element on top of the acoustic foundation." The project was produced by Chris Stevens (TobyMac, Carrie Underwood), Jamie Kenney (Marc Broussard, Erin McCarley) and David Garcia (Group 1 Crew, Britt Nicole). CR
