New album On the Shoulders of Giants generating plenty o’ buzz…
By Blurt Staff
Roots/blues/rock guitarist Shawn James has been notching kudos left and right of late, and he’s being favorably compared to Leon Bridges, Son House, The Picturebooks, Robert Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf, Black Keys, and Otis Redding. Quite a range of talent; not a surprise to learn that the Fayetteville, Ark., musician’s latest album is titled On the Shoulders of Giants. Not a surprise to learn that his band is called The Shapeshifters, either.
You can get a whiff of James’ own talent with a new video he filmed at Sun Studios in Memphis. Check it out, below. You can also go HERE to view his previous vid, filmed in a snowy wolf sanctuary. And for more music, visit his BandCamp page.
