I’m delighted that Fierce! have taken up the marketing challenge of breaking Shaun in the UK. In America his 'Invitation To Eavesdrop’ established him as a critic’s favourite, an expert purveyor of wistful musical introspective with songs brimming with intelligence and integrity. This introduction to Shaun’s music offers two songs from his August released album ‘Twilight’ and two from his earlier classic. The symphonic production on “Welcome Home” was a little overwhelming for my tastes but Shaun's ability to communicate a bold but never sloganeering spirituality is exceptional. An artist to investigate.
